BALL SCREW vs PRECISION REINFORCED COG BELT Driven Dot Peen Marking Systems

Millennium Signatures “Marksman Series” Computerized Dot Peen Marking Systems is a comprehensive collection of equipment models, all offering their own unique features and abilities. 
Among their many differences, they can be quite easily divided simply into two (2) groups just by the drive technology they are equipped with. 
We have the Precision Reinforced Cog Belt Driven models and the slightly higher-end Ball Screw Driven models. While it’s true the Ball Screw Technology does have some advantages over the Reinforced Cog Belt Driven models, don’t fall into the thinking that the Reinforced Cog Belt Driven Systems are inferior or not worthy for those of you who believe strongly in buying a good product and doing things right the first time!
It is true that Ball Screw is a little more precise and does have better registration, repeatability long term, but the reality is they really only show an advantage in some situations. For example, if you are doing Machine-Readable Codes all the time on a regular production basis and your markings are not only required to be clean, sharp and precise to the naked eye, but also to today’s world of high definition scanning technology, then yes there would be an advantage to going to a Ball Screw Design for the very best possible code generation. Ball Screw is also beneficial when it comes to longer distances as in the X or Y-Axis travel of your Marking Head. Our Model MH-250 Marking Head which features a larger marking area of 250mm (9,84”) x 250mm (9.84”) is an example of where we use the Ball Screw Drive mechanism because it allows for us to maintain a tighter tolerance over a greater span. If we build custom Marking Heads for a customer that cover an even larger span, naturally we would continue to stay with the Ball Screw Drive. 
Ball Screw is also a little longer lasting, so should your machine be running around the clock or performing a very high number of cycles every hour ongoing then this might be a reason to invest in the slightly more expensive Ball Screw Driven Technology. Ball Screw Systems also yield some additional benefit when marking really small characters. The extra precision of these units will start to show when marking characters under 2.0mm in height with one of our precision marking tips such as the PH-16 or the LP-06. 
However, eight or nine of every ten Computerized Dot Peen Marking Systems sold are based on the Precision Reinforced Cog Belt Driven Technology and it is not to be underestimated. It is remarkable the character generation and repeatability these systems provide, year after year. They are also highly proficient at Barcodes such as 2D Matrix, UID and QR codes, it’s only recommended to upgrade if these markings are very high in volume. 
When demonstrating these systems, most clients will not even ask to see the Ball Screw Driven models as they feel it is not at all necessary. The marking is extremely clean and the codes read perfectly. The feedback we get from clients that have owned these systems for years, consistently indicates that they continue to perform like new. There is no noticeable deterioration and they are very happy with the reliable, maintenance-free experience they have had.
We have a lot of great Marking Systems for you to see. Regardless which Drive Design you feel is right for you, Marksman Systems are extremely well designed, easy to use and very well priced.

73XNW MARKING INK

What to know about 73X and 73XNW Series Aerospace Grade Marking Inks.

BASIC DESCRIPTION
This is our most versatile marking ink. For the past 20 years, it has been used by leading aircraft and space component manufacturers for general purpose marking. In space applications, the out-gassing characteristics are extremely low.

SPECIFICATIONS
When applied properly, the ink meets or exceeds the performance requirements of G.S.A Specification: A-A-208 TYPE I

WHERE TO BUY
Supplied by Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc., they are shipped from Buffalo, New York in the USA or Burlington, Ontario in Canada.

DANGEROUS GOODS
This product is classified as a “Dangerous Goods” product and in some cases will require some additional fees to cover costs associated with the special packaging, labelling, documentation of the product above and beyond the transportation fees themselves. This is unavoidable in a lot of cases

RECONDITIONER
Along with the Aerospace Grade Marking Ink which is available in a variety of colours, but always maintained in stock in BLACK, RED and WHITE if the 73XNW Grade “Reconditioner” which is the corresponding solvent which should be used to thin the 73XNW Series Marking Inks or used in Clean-up Applications. It is not a requirement that both be purchased, they are sold independent of one another, but it is recommended that you have Fresh Reconditioner on-hand if you are using the Marking Ink.

BASE
The base of this Marking Ink is Ethyl Alcohol. This is NOT a two-part Marking Ink. It is ready to use right out of the bottle unless it should need to be thinned out some using the Reconditioner to suit your application.

SHELF LIFE
When stored in a cool place in a sealed container it is stable for a minimum of one (1) year. However, periodic exposure of this ink to the air will cause it to become more viscous (thicken). The addition of the 73X Reconditioner will thin the ink back to a suitable consistency.

DRYING TIME
Room Temperature, humidity and ink film thickness all may have a significant effect in drying time. 
On average, however, the ink when applied with a rubber stamp and pad will dry to the touch in approximately 6 minutes.

CORROSION
Since this ink is NOT compounded with any toxic or harmful acids, it is non-corrosive on Aluminum Alloys, Magnesium, Stainless Steels, Titanium or many of the exotic Space Grade metals.

APPLICATION

Part Marking Services serve some better than you might expect. It’s one thing to have the right equipment, but knowing the in’s and out’s of that equipment, knowing how to use all the features and get the most out of that equipment is not all that common among end-users. 
We know this because we provide equipment to end-users every day and provide detailed instruction and support on how to use the equipment efficiently and effectively. 
However, between staff turn-over and other internal changes, often we visit client sites months later and despite the clients say the systems working great and they are happy with their purchase, most often they are not using the systems to anywhere near their full potential. 
At Millennium Signatures we know all the equipment we sell inside out! We work with it every day on real-world applications, we service it and are very aggressive with updating and staying on top of the latest advancements in the industry and sometimes sending your work out for processing is very beneficial cause you can get much better results, faster and with no waste by allowing the Part Marking Specialists to do it for you. 
If you are an end-user already equipped with our equipment and feel that you’re no longer getting the full potential out of your system, call us. We can come to your facility and provide full training, we can design and build fixtures, provide additional tooling and help by creating layouts and programs. We know keeping on top of everything is an exhausting process, don’t hesitate to ask us to help!
