Plastic Identification

The IMPACT range makes it possible to perform high-quality marking on a large number of materials from, metal plate engraving (painted steel, aluminum, brass, iron, steel, raw, and anodized aluminum) to plastics (ABS, PA, PP).

Impact Z axis ideal for small and large parts

From single part markings to small batches the IMPACT is loved for it size and versatility. With a 11.81 in clearance and open architecture traceability on, one of the smallest parts to identification on larger heavier parts are available. No job is too big. Used by automotive, aerospace, medical, and from heavy and light industries, the Impact has become a favorite workstation.

The marking head is raised or lowered using control buttons

We took all of our experience working within industrial traceability and created the IMPACT for maximum flexibility,  when both marking requirements and parts to be marked are constantly changing.

The IMPACT was created to be the all in one, ready to go solution, with usability at the forefront and designed to be opened and ready to start marking immediately.
