CUSTOM PART MARKING or “Contract Marking” as its sometimes called…

     

A bit about the services we offer. As Part Marking Specialists, we spend all day, every day evaluating various types of parts of all shapes, sizes and materials being manufactured to various industry and military specifications. Our core business is to assist our customer with determining which of our many Marking Systems is ideally suited for their specific needs and getting them set-up with it. 
However, with such an accumulated wealth of knowledge and experience dating back almost 50 years, we have made Custom Part Marking or “Contract Marking” a service we’ve offered for more than 18 years now and it’s become a huge part of our business! 
We’ve equipped a division with all the high-end pieces of equipment and technology we manufacture and sell along with an in-house artwork department. We can handle pretty much any part marking task you can throw at us. We have several Fibre Laser Marking Technologies, we have CO2 Lasers, we have a whole range of Computerized Dot Peen Marking Systems with various capabilities from DEEP MARKING to Circumferential or “Cylindrical” Marking capabilities. We have Electro-Chemical Etching and make Custom Stencils right on-demand in-house. We do engraving and stamping. We do Computer Controlled Low-Stress Scratch Marking or Scribing. We have a LOT of capability and most importantly a wealth of Experience & Talent in-house to process your parts exactly as needed and with very fast turn-around. Next day in most cases!
One of our most popular offerings is a program that combines Custom Part Marking Services with a desire to make an equipment purchase. We have our client give at least a batch of your production parts for processing initially. Yes, you pay us to mark them but we will design and create effective positive locating jigs and fixtures for you. We will do the application testing and get you exactly the great results you have in mind and we will set-up Marking Layouts optimized for higher throughput applications, the graphics and the programs for you. We will process parts for you once or as often as you’d like until you are ready to have the same equipment we are using in our Custom Marking Center places on your factory floor. We will have gotten the results you want and you will have already gotten feedback from your colleagues and clients. We will have worked out the fine details of any new process set-up and when you decide you want a brand new version of the same on your shop floor, we will give you the programs, fixtures, settings, EVERYTHING needed to start production marking immediately!

We are told often that the experience is a smart way to buy things. It’s a smooth process that gives the buyer total confidence in their purchase and certainly a very effective way to introduce and start using a new process.

We are able to mark almost anything. We are not very limited by part size, weight or material. We have a lot to offer. Contact our Part Marking Specialists at Millennium Signatures Marking Systems and ask about what we can do for you.

CHEMICAL ETCH MARKING

Electrolytes and Neutralizers for Chemical Etching
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.

73XNW MARKING INKS

Do you process Aerospace Components which require 73XNW Marking Inks & Solvents? Polyurethane Protective Top Coat Products Perhaps?

PART MARKING SYSTEMS & SERVICES, it’s what we do!

IDENTITY CRISIS?

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.

If you have any questions about how we might be able to assist you, please contact our Part Marking Specialists for more information.

CUSTOM PART MARKING SERVICES

HISTORY

Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc. has an extensive history of selling and supporting Part Marking Technologies or Traceability Systems to the Manufacturing sector going back as far as 1972. Despite that its principal business is to sell, integrate and support the various methods of marking, we also have a very successful Custom Part Marking Division which has been servicing hundreds of clients for almost 15 years now. We have taken our extensive knowledge of Part Marking practices and our impressive range of equipment and made our services open to any clients who do not wish to invest in the technology for one reason or another or who wish to essentially get their products out onto the field and trial the marking results before committing to a process. There are many advantages to outsourcing your marking even if just initially. Let us do the hard work for you.

EXPERTISE

Those staffing the Millennium Signatures Custom Part Marking Division have extensive knowledge of how to work the various technologies and work to even the most rigid specifications. We can take on the marking of complex part configurations much more effectively that someone new to the process. Our pricing is very effective, and our turn-around times are said to be “excellent” based on feedback from our existing client base. Some of our clients bring their parts to us because they’re volumes are too low to justify an equipment purchase, others just don’t have the time or expertise. However, our Custom Part Marking Services provides another very valuable option for those considering buying their own equipment.

ADVANTAGES

If you send your parts to Millennium Signatures Marking Systems for processing, we will design proper fixturing that will positively locate and secure your part during the marking process. We will create layouts and programs allowing the chosen technology to execute the marking sequence properly and we will always provide First Article Samples or detailed photos to the client before proceeding with marking a batch of their parts. You can pay us to mark a single batch of your parts or you can bring us batches of parts for marking for years and years. When you’re ready to make a purchase, Millennium Signatures will not only outfit you with the proven hardware selection we use to process your parts, but we will bring our NEW equipment to your facility, install it and train your operators. The beautiful thing is that we will hand over all the fixtures, programs, layouts, stencils, artwork or any other production aids that we used to mark your parts, so you are now instantly in production. You will have absolutely everything you need to make the perfect impression from the time we walk out of your facility. Going about it in this way allows you to get the marking you need to be done (by professionals), it allows you to see and experience the results before committing to any significant cash outlay and there is never any expectation of an equipment purchase. However, if you do you will know you are selecting the right equipment for the job and you will be provided with absolutely EVERYTHING you need to get started.

PROCESSES

Our Custom Part Marking Services Division offers the following technologies which can be used to mark your parts, Electro-Chemical Etching, Engraving, Computerized Dot Peen Stamping, Ink Marking and both Fibre and CO2 Laser Marking. If you are not sure which technology is best for your application, contact our Part Marking Specialists at info@millenniumsignatures.com or by phone at (905) 639-0909 and have us evaluate your application properly and give you our recommendations.

RECOMMENDATIONS

It is strongly recommended that if you are having us process your parts for the first time, that you provide us with extra parts, scrap parts or spares. It is always best to have an actual part that we can set-up and test with before starting to run production on a good batch of parts. If a spare part is not available, it is quite possible we can still get you a perfect marking from the start, but a close second would be to get a sample piece of the very same material and surface condition as the actual parts we would be expected to mark.

If absolutely nothing is available, it is likely with our expertise that we can still get you a highly acceptable marking the first time, but it’s a much more challenging task for us and it may take longer or the first part or first few parts of that batch may be less than ideal before we manage to dial the settings in just right to secure a perfect marking for all the rest. There is no other alternative, however with all that we see on any given day our chances of getting a highly acceptable mark is much better than for most anyone else.

POLICIES

We often see hundreds and sometimes thousands of parts processed in our facilities each day. We have an unbelievable record for accuracy and acceptability among our clients, but things can happen for a multitude of reasons ranging from very confusing instructions from clients to inconsistencies in the product to hardware/software failures and on occasion even human error. We have created a process whereby we evaluate the client’s job, we review the materials sent. We prepare a sample and we either send the sample to the client for an approval (if time permits) or in most cases, we are asked to take good quality close-up images of the marking results and transmit them electronically to our clients for review and approval before proceeding onto multiple parts. If an error takes place that is deemed to be the fault of Millennium Signatures Marking Systems role in the processing of parts, Millennium Signatures limits its liability to the cost of remarking parts only. Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc. is to be in no way held responsible for the costs associated with removal of unwanted markings, recoating, reworking or replacement of customer supplied parts. There is simply too many variables and an extreme range of different products and circumstances for Millennium Signatures to take on such responsibility. Given, such circumstances, our team takes our responsibility very seriously and treats all customer supplied components with the highest levels of care and consideration.

PACKAGING & HANDLING

Please consider that we appreciate that expensive parts that are time-consuming to produce need to be protected and need to be transported carefully. Out of respect to our clients, we go through a series of procedures to ensure that our client supplied products are handled in such a manner that accidental dropping or scratching etc. is minimized if not eliminated. Our processes include handling the part as little as possible, working over anti-fatigue matting on floors and workbenches to cushion any unexpected impacts. We take the parts from any protective packaging, mark the part to specification and return immediately to the same packaged state they are received unless instructed in writing to do otherwise. Our fixturing is custom made on-site out of Plastics, Acrylics and Nylons to prevent scratching or scuffing of parts while being processed. We even wear gloves and can use a lint-free microfibre polishing cloths to clean up parts of any fingerprints if they are decorative parts such as chrome fixtures etc.

CUSTOM MARKING REQUESTS & INFORMATION

HELPFUL MARKING TIPS SERIES: Electro-Chemical Etching of Titanium

Electro-Chemical Etching of Titanium

“When chemically etching information on Titanium, less is often more…”

For the best Electro-Chemical Etch results on Titanium, use Millennium Signatures Electrolyte Formulation
X4R-416 at a Medium to High Power Setting in the DC Output Mode on most Power Units. A good Deep Etch Power Unit is ideal for optimal results. Getting a high contrast light surface mark on Titanium can be challenging, if your specs will accommodate, it’s actually easier to get a very sharp crisp marking by etching down a couple thousandths of an inch (0.002”) or 0.051mm which is easily achieved with a few very quick, light applications of the hand marker as not to generate too much heat. 
Give the surface a very quick light scuff with a Scotch Brito abrasive type pad and you should have a beautiful, razor sharp, high contrast etch which is often easily mistaken for a laser quality marking.

Remember:
Remember to keep your Monopad very damp with the X4R-416 Electrolyte Formulation, but not dripping all over your part and workstation. Too much heat can be the enemy when marking most metals, this is especially true when marking Titanium.
Use Standard Neutralizer or our Extra Strength X4R-900 Neutralizer to thoroughly clean the areas that came in contact with the electrolyte. 
Results may vary slightly when using different grades of Titanium, but these tips typically serve well on all Titanium Etching Applications. A good ground connection in close proximity to the area you’re marking is always important.

For more information on the best Electro-Chemical Etching Equipment, Accessories and Supplies for a given application, be sure to check our other HELPFUL MARKING TIPS SERIES Blogs and posts on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn as well as at our Website: www.millenniumsignatures.com
