The Automatic Embossing System (AES) is designed for medium- to high-volume tagging needs. A coil of pre-fabricated metal tags is loaded into the system and it’s ready to accept data and start embossing. Tags can be made one at a time or in batches and are then snapped apart for use.

  • Emboss one or more lines of text, logos, and 2D Data Matrix codes
  • Coil tag feed system is designed for continuous, jam-free marking of up to 1,000 tags per coil

Fully Programmable

The AES uses dot peen technology to emboss metal tags using a carbide marking pin. Data can be embossed in any direction and any character size. Information to be marked can be input manually by an operator, retrieved from a file, or sent automatically from a host system via a Serial or Ethernet/IP connection. The AES software can also be configured to receive data from other sources such as a bar code scanner or scale. Automatic data checking parameters can be set to prevent data entry errors.

Tracking products in harsh environments

Embossed metal tags are ideal for processes like shot blasting, pickling, annealing, hot dip galvanizing, painting, and powder coating where any other tag or label would be rendered unreadable. Your product identification remains intact even after years of exposure to outdoor conditions.
