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.

New Benchtop Marking System!

We have a very exciting NEW Bench Top Marking System to tell you about. 
It’s called the MK-250/200BN complete with a Heavy Duty Rotary Axis on our unique CDC-20 Positive Alignment Slide.
This system is not entirely NEW as much as it is a seamless blend of other popular Marksman Series Marking Systems. Here are the Four (4) features that make it unique and more versatile than anything else you will find on the market.

1 > This system uses our latest and most compact Controller which is packed with features such as Ethernet, USB, Read/Write SD Card and RS-232 connectivity. This very compact controller comes with an ergonomic Mount +Tray to support the Mini-Keyboard.

2 > This system also incorporated our MH-250 High-Performance Ball Screw Driven Marking Head, which boasts a generous 250mm x 250mm marking area. This is ideal for large parts, multiple parts and excellent for Large Nameplate Marking applications. You can never go wrong with the speed and precision of a Ball Screw Driven Marking Head and the Extra Large Marking Field comes in handy more often than you realize.

3> This extra large Marking Head has been Integrated with our CDC-20 Positive Alignment Slide which is also equipped with a Rotary Axis. The CDC-20 has been modified to allow for the larger parts (or tray of multiple parts) to be supported under the Marking Head. The Positive Alignment Slide Feature allows you to slide your flat part marking applications out of the way bringing in the Rotary Axis with adjustable Tail Stock all the while maintaining perfect alignment for Circumferential Marking of Cylinders. Having this feature allows you to switch out from conventional static Flat Part marking to Rotary Marking and back again if needed in seconds.

4> The last of the major features of this unique new system configuration is the addition of our extra heavy duty Rotary Axis with large 3-Jaw Chuck. It’s much larger and has more torque and accuracy than other systems you’ll find on the market. Without any customization, the Rotary Axis will mark parts up to 6.0” in diameter and part weight in excess of 35lbs. With modification, if needed, we can easily exceed these bits the system will be considered custom and built to suit. This may result in 3-4 lead time. 
I promise you that if you’re looking for a Premium System with the versatility to take whatever part marking requirements come your way, this NEW system configuration will impress. 
It was so impressive upon our first system build, that we immediately built up more for inventory, this system is proving to be very popular because there is nothing close to it being offered anywhere else.

Contact the Part Marking Specialists at Millennium Signatures Marking Systems about our Marksman MK-200BN/250 c/w CDC-20 Rotary Axis. You can reach us Monday thru Friday from 8:30am to 4:30 Eastern Standard Time.

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.

Working to Spec. is Something we do ALL DAY, EVERY DAY

Our customers provide us with all the unique specifics they are expected to follow when marking their customer’s parts and send them to us to make it happen. We understand the importance of “Low Stress” Marking and how it’s often necessary to meet or not exceed a certain marking depth for example. You can trust Millennium Signatures to review your specification thoroughly and consult with you before marking your parts. You can take comfort knowing that we can work from your drawings. 
We can produce a “First Article” for your review or we can use good high-quality Digital Macro Photography to take a series of photos of the First Article Component for inspection sent electronically by e-mail. We don’t start marking your parts until you’ve signed off confirming you like the results we’ve achieved. For almost 50 years, we’ve spent every day helping people get the best marking possible on their parts!
We have several clients that fly batches of parts halfway around the world to make sure their challenging requirement are marked properly. 
Contact our Part Marking Specialists to discuss why allowing our Custom Part Marking Division to mark some of your parts for you might be highly beneficial especially if you’re in the market to purchase equipment for your own in-house processing.

CONTRACT PART MARKING

At Millennium Signatures Marking Systems we work daily with manufacturers from all industries to access their part marking requirements and supply them with the right equipment and keep them operational. However, we also provide Custom Part Marking Services or “Contract Marking” as its often referred to by some. Sometimes, especially when volumes are not very high, it’s easier for a manufacturer to send their parts to us and allow us with our nearly half a century of experience and a wide range of equipment and tooling to mark their parts for them. We do the work quickly and efficiently and always provide a First Article part or photo as per the clients request for inspection before the lot is processed no matter how large or small. 
It also serves a second very valuable purpose. If you are considering buying technology, we can use the technology you are most interested in to mark your parts. Yes, you pay for the service, but in the end, after one batch or twenty (20) batches you will have complete confidence in the systems we use because what we use, is what we sell. You will know the parts meet your customer’s specifications and when you invest in the equipment you will be entirely certain that it will do the job you expect. Also, any jigs, fixtures, artwork, layouts and programs that we develop when processing your parts are yours when you purchase. This way your in full production from Day 1 when your System is delivered. It serves a lot of companies very well when they are unsure about a process, or time is of the essence. You will hit the ground running with this unique way of buying your new Marking Technology.
