Deep Etch Monopads (10/Pkg.)

Deep Etch Monopads are made of a special contaminant free thick felt produced specifically for this process with a cotton wick attached allowing electrolyte to disburse evenly throughout the pad. Monopads are available in a variety of sizes to suit standard heads and customs sizes are produced to suit custom designed head assemblies as required.

 H100 head and handle

H-100 Holder & Carbon Head (Available Separately)

The H-100 Holder is universal and accommodates all different sizes of Carbon Head Assemblies. Carbon Heads are made of a Bonded Graphite Carbon, which can be easily machined for modification to suit parts if necessary.

 Screen Cloth Holders

Screen Cloth Holders

For those system users that prefer the Screen Cloth Marking Head Design, we have a variety of standard sizes available. This product is optional to the Deep Etch Monopads and Carbon Heads shown above. This product is NOT as effective for Deep Etch applications

 Custom Heads

Custom Heads

Made to suit your specific application.

Reservoir tubes designed to hold electrolyte and provide gravity drip feed of the solution to the Monopad and designed to fit within the H-100 Holder are also available.

 Gator Clip

Gator Clip

Standard alligator style clip designed to suit banana plug style connectors. Replacement for standard ground clip provided with basic etching kits. The Chemical Etching Process is dependant on good continuity and therefore a solid ground connection is important. You can ground direct to the product (best if possible) or to a ground plate or fixture supporting your product.

 Rocker Head

Rocker Head Assemblies

Rocker Heads are ideal for etching larger surfaces and specifically for Grid Marking applications. Grid Stencils are available in a host of different size and shape grid patterns in sheets up to 10” X 10”. Robust one-piece designs make the product low maintenance and long lasting.

 Gound Clamp

Large Ground Clamp

This larger, stronger clamp can be adapted to existing ground leads or ordered complete with a new wire cord set. The Chemical Etching Process is dependant on good continuity and therefore a solid ground connection is important. You can ground direct to the product (best if possible) or to a ground plate or fixture supporting your product.

 Wire Cord Set

Wire Cord Sets

Available in 2, 3 and 4 wire cord sets depending on the Power Unit and additional accessories such as cleaning trays, or Semi-Automated Marking Heads to be used. Standard cord set length is 3ft. Sets offering additional length are available including a 6ft set. Additional length can be a real advantage when working with larger products such as aircraft landing gear etc.

 Finger Ground

Finger Ground

This great little device makes some etching applications a lot easier given that you can wear a very comfortable thimble (like) ground contact on the tip of your finger. It is ideal for use when working with small parts allowing your to hold and orientate the part in one hand grounding with your finger ground while you apply the etch with your hand marker in the other.

 MS-1220-BF  

MS-1220-BF

Equipped with a 1-1/4” X 2” Carbon Block. This Bench Fixture can be machined to create a nest for placement marking. The fixture comes complete with a locating plate for precision placement or as a guild for Roll Marking small cylindrical components.

 MS-2045-BF

MS-2045-BF

Equipped with a 2” X 4-1/2” Carbon Block. This Bench Fixture can be machined to create a nest for placement marking. The fixture comes complete with a locating plate for precision placement or as a guild for Roll Marking slightly larger sized cylindrical components.

 Positive Feed Electrolyte Pump

Positive Feed Electrolyte Pump

Delivers an exact amount of electrolyte directly to the marking head and only while marking as the pump is activated by the motion of the AM-10-A so that when the system stops processing parts, the feed of electrolyte to the head stops also. No spillage or flooding due to operator neglect with this feature. To change electrolytes simply remove drawtube from old bottle and place into new bottle and manually crank knob a few times to clear old solution and prime the pump with new formula.

 Foot Petal

Foot Pedal

The Foot Pedal serves as a very useful tool in both manual and automated applications. The foot pedal allows the operator to work at his or her own pace on the AM-10-A semi-automatic unit by using the foot pedal to activate the cycle. In manual applications the foot switch also makes providing power to the part simple when trying to hold and precision mark a part.

Excellent feature when working with a ground plate, in most cases preventing direct contact with the ground from occurring.

 AM-10-A Carbon Head Assembly

AM-10-A Carbon Head Assembly

Carbon Heads that are supplied with the necessary plexi-mounting block and adjustment features for use in the AM-10-A and AM-30-T Semi / Fully Automatic Etching Systems. The Carbon Head and mount are supplied with an electrolyte feed tube that will deliver solution right through to the Monopad. Heads can be supplied in various

configurations, with custom contours, steps or guilds etc.

 Carrying Case

Carrying Case

High quality hard wood vinyl covered carrying case is custom designed and perfectly suited for housing your Chemical Etching Unit and Accessories. Great features include a hole located in the rear panel for the power cord to pass through and a built in Stainless Steel Ground Plate allow this carrying case to instantly become a work station and keeps all of your supplies and accessories secure in one location.

 Cleaning Tray

Cleaning Tray

Designed as an electrolyte bath to clean stencils. This device uses reverse polarity to draw oxide and metal particles out of the open aperture of Fabric Stencils, quickly and effortlessly.

 AM-10-A Semi Automatic Etching System

AM-10-A Semi Automatic Etching System

The Models MS-400-CC or MS-510-DE Power Unit must be used in conjunction with the AM-10-A. These units when properly set will automatically cycle the AM-10-A so that all the operator has to do is load and unload the parts. The system can also be activated manually via foot pedal. Cycle time on this unit is approximately 1200 parts per hour. This system is also exceptionally effective at ensuring that the mark quality to consistent from one part to the next as all aspects of the process are controlled. Long Life Fabric Cap Stencils are most effective with this system.
