Chemical Etching is a safe and effective method of part marking that has been around for approximately 80 years now. It’s very safe and easy to use on all conductive metals and allows you to get beautiful, high contrast, permanent markings without setting up any stress in your part. It’s also just as effective no matter how hard your material is.
Chemical Etching is very versatile and it’s everywhere being used on everything from pumps & valves to saw blades and other cutting tools. It’s very inexpensive, it’s fast and it’s proven!
If Galvo Driven Laser Technology is out of reach due to production volumes or expense, Chemical Etching can still provide those high quality markings that often get mistaken for Laser Etched results.
Millennium Signatures has over fifty (50) different Electrolytes in stock to help you mark even the more obscure materials when needed.
We also sell complete Marking Kits, accessories and supplies such as Durable Long Life Fabric Stencils, Marking Heads, Wire Cord Sets, Stencil Papers, Imprinters and so much more. Contact our Part Marking Specialists today for more information on what electrolytes are needed for your project or which marking kit best suits your applications. We have 50 Years of experience here to assist you with all of your part marking needs.

Millennium Signatures at its roots was Chem-Etch and Stamp going back almost 50 years to 1972. In those early years, the company was a leader in Electro-Chemical Etching and Steel Stamp & Die Processes and still is today. In 1987 the company took on the Distribution, Integration and Servicing of Computerized Dot Peen Marking Technology which was completely NEW at that time. It was in 1990 that a separate division of the company was formed and “Canadian Laser Technologies” was created to focus on designing, building and integrating Galvo based Nd:YAG and CO2 Lasers.
It was in 2003 that the company invested extensively in new facilities and new products and completely rebranded to become Millennium Signatures Marking Systems. A complete full-service solution for all your Part Marking and Product Identification needs. We have accumulated such an extensive client base that we expanded our focus even further and in 2006 we did a deep dive into the formulation of Custom Inks and Solvents (Printing Ink) to support Direct, Offset and Inkjet Marking System use.
Today we have multiple facilities and deal with manufacturers from virtually every sector of the manufacturing world right around the globe. The bulk of our business is throughout North and South America but we do supply product throughout Europe and many Baltic Countries also.
Today we still come across long time Etching Customers that did not know we supplied and supported Lasers, likewise some Laser customers were surprised to find we are also one of the leading sources of Computerized Dot Peen Marking Equipment and so on. So we are looking to set the record straight and let everyone know the extensive range of products & services that we provide. We stock everything needed for technical support services on everything we sell and have great technicians throughout North America to support our customers with after-sales technical support.
Today at Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc., we specialize in all of the following products and maintain product on the shelf for quick availability. These Products and Services include:
Custom Engraved Steel Stamp & Die, Custom Tooling & Fixturing, Computerized Dot Peen Marking Systems in Bench Top, Portable and Compact Integrator Series Marker formats, Custom Formulated Industrial Inks & Solvents including Aerospace Marking Inks & Polyurethane Protective Top Coat Products.
We also are highly specialized in Fibre and CO2 Galvo Driven Laser Marking Systems, Electro-Chemical Etching, Custom Cut Stencils, Laser Sintered Signs, Vibro Etch and Scribe Marking Technologies and we are a Manufacturer of Custom Steel & Aluminum Nameplates and high-quality Self-Adhesive Labels and Decals. Then, of course, is our very popular Custom Part Marking Services Division which you can read all about by searching #CustomPartMarking and #ContractMarking. We need to service companies with a multitude of complex requirements and we are not going to talk a customer out of a Dot Peen Marking System to sell a Laser as a Laser Company would and vice-versa. We will provide you with the solution that is right for you meeting your specifications and keeping you within your budget.
So to summarize, we are a complete Marking Systems & Services Solutions company and we are very proud of all we have accomplished over the years and thankful for the thousands of customers who choose to have us support their Product Identification processes.
High Contrast Marking on Stainless Steel using Chemical Etching
One of the most common materials to Electro-Chemically Etch is Stainless Steels. It’s used for so many products from Medial Appliances and Food Preparation Equipment to Pressure Vessels and Nuclear Hardware etc.
One of the things we are asked for most often is how to create a high contrast BLACK permanent image on Stainless. Well for a very long time it’s been quite easy to get a good high contrast marking on Stainless steel and there are many Electrolytic Solutions that can help you obtain these results. However, Millennium Signatures X4R-428 Electrolyte Solution is unique in this area. Unlike the brown coloured markings, you tend to get with other formulations, our X4R-428 Electrolyte delivers a Black result that has definitely impressed those who have long been searching for a better result in this area. This Electrolyte can be used with any of our Power Units or Electro-Chemical Marking Kits.

Millennium Signatures Hours:

Do you have a Class I Galvo Driven Laser Marking System and an operator who stands idle in front of the machine for anywhere from 30 seconds per part to potentially a few minutes for every batch of parts loaded into the Laser Marker? If you have high volumes of product to Laser Mark, this time spent idle can greatly increase the overall time needed to process the parts you need.
Consider the freshly redesigned Galvo Driven (Class I) Rotary Dial Index Laser Marking System for 2018 by TYKMA Electrox supplied by Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc.
This system is designed for additional efficiency over conventional Box Marking Enclosures with Manual or Automatic Door Systems.
These systems have a robust rotary table that is set-up to rotate 180 Degrees upon command at the end of each “marking cycle”. This allows an operator to be unloading parts that have just been marked and reload the fixture with fresh new parts at the very same time as the parts previously fixtured on the other half of the table are actively being marked. Once the cycle is complete and fresh (unmarked) product has been loaded there is a touch activation process that requires both hands to rotate the new parts in for processing at the same time as finished parts are presented back to the operator for unloading.
It’s a safe process, the Laser System is designed to provide Class I protection with a KG-3 Protective Viewing Window and integrates light curtains that will instantly stop the system in its tracks should the light curtain be interrupted or obstructed why the table is rotating.
It’s a much faster, more efficient process for applications that have high volumes of the same parts to be marked.
For more information on this system and various other system designs, contact our Technical Sales Team at Tel: (905) 639-0909 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
