Mark-First® Impact Presses
- Economical and safe for low to high volume applications
- Fully adjustable for safe, controlled-depth marking
- Precision marking minimizes distortion and cracks, even on fragile materials
Mark-First® marking presses can be used on a benchtop or can be mounted for in-line indenting. Use a type holder to arrange type for simple alphanumeric marking or a numbering head for serializing. Custom type and type holders are available for special marking needs.
Mark-First® presses satisfy a wide variety of stamping and embossing needs, and can also be used for riveting, press fitting, crimping and other operations. Marking is actuated by compressing and releasing a spring-loaded ram for controlled marking depth.
Manual marking presses are actuated by pulling a handle.
Pneumatic marking presses – where air is available – are actuated by dual-palm safety buttons or other automatic controls. They can also be manually actuated with a handle.
Fixed-mount pneumatic presses can be mounted in any orientation for in-line marking.
