Marking Tools For Identification & Equipment Traceability

Learn more about our laser stations and our dot peen marking machines!

Metal tools are subject to intensive use throughout their life cycle, which means that marking must be carried out in such a way as to withstand the harsh working environment in which they are used. These tools valuable, and as a supplier of tools and equipment, you need to guarantee the highest quality, while complying with current identification standards. There are several challenges for the identification of tools and equipment, management of the tool park and simplification of inventories. Tool traceability management systems have become an essential tool for tool park inventory organizations. In industrial companies equipped with a production or assembly workshop, there are hundreds of tools per shift and per operator, which can, unfortunately, be misplaced. A good marked tool is a traced tool. Tools are often brought in for repair, sharpening, or replacement. A good tool identification allows a continuous follow -up of the maintenance of the tools but also to set up preventive maintenance of the tools. Thanks to the identification of tools you can know when it has been repaired, sharpened and thus plan a future repair.

Tools have a significant cost and the loss of a tool can result in unexpected expenses. Our marking systems help to reduce expenses against theft, loss and damage. Implementation of a tool traceability system allows a complete follow -up of their use and return. A lost or forgotten tool could become a problem that the permanent identification of your tools can quickly solve. For all these reasons, you need to continuously identify your tools and equipment so that you can trace them throughout their life cycle. It is a question of quality, efficiency, cost reduction and compliance with standards. Do you need a versatile solution for every shape and material? The implementation of a tool and equipment traceability system is an important issue for manufacturers and it is an investment. Gravotech supplies turnkey marking stations using different technologies for small and medium series marking with controlled costs. You will mark everything, in batches or individually, with our powerful and very easy to use solutions.
