The EasyMark 5-in-1 tooling kit from Mate Precision Tooling automates metal component identification during the punching process by performing five marking operations. EasyMark is a thick turret application tooling system for machines without a bottom stroke forming feature. Using the programming software in a CNC punch press, this versatile tool system can be set up to automatically mark fabricated parts five different ways during the punching process. The tool can: write numbers, dates, and other identifying information on a part surface using a special marker; etch the sheet metal surface with permanent marking information in this mode using one of two supplied diamond inserts; cut or scribe protective film on sheet metal surfaces in this mode using a supplied brass insert to expose localized areas on the part without damaging underlying metal material; create cone-shaped indentations (center point down) on the part surface to locate the part with other components for later assembly; and perform high-speed dot-matrix marking in this mode using a supplied carbide insert.
