Logo New Product: Air Impact Marking Station for Robotic Cells  
As robots play a bigger and bigger role in automated production, Columbia Marking Tools now provides complete marking stations for robot work cells.

CMT's air impact markers have been a preferred solution for industrial manufacturing for over half a century. These compact systems provide a quick easy mark - from a station identification, to a part number, or date code. CMT's air impact markers are a low cost solution to dot-peen and laser marking systems. In addition, these rugged marking units have a speedy cycle time, and provide a deep legible mark.

Air impact markers provide a very intense impact and CMT recommends the use of a part rest during the marking process. The part rest can be designed to hold the part while the robot does other operations, or as shown, just a small back-up detail.
