JEFF GUENTHER – 30 YEARS SPECIALIZING IN PART MARKING SYSTEMS & SERVICES!



It was 30 years ago, on the morning of August 6th, 1989 that I started working alongside my grandfather in a machine shop. I was not even finished school yet but worked every day even around a class schedule. From that day forward, I prepared blanks and related tooling for Custom Engraved Steel Stamping Dies and other accessories to support various Marking Solutions all intended to make it easier and more efficient for manufacturers to identify their parts professionally and permanently. These technologies have allowed them to build brand recognition and take responsibilities for the quality of their products through barcoding, lot numbering, serialization and other forms of traceability in virtually all industries from Aerospace to Nuclear, Medical-Surgical, Steel Industry, Machine & Tool, Plastics Processing and so much more. 
I have continued to focus my energies in this very same direction every day since. Today, 30 Years later my company Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc., continues to provide even the most hi-tech manufacturing companies of today with the latest Marking capabilities and provide integration services. We have also created a very unique “Custom Part Marking Services” division that allows some clients with highly specialized requirements or smaller volumes to draw upon those 30 years of experience and our dynamic range of processes by bringing their parts to us for processing. We have built a procedure that allows us to assess the application, prepare any artwork, necessary fixturing, material handling etc., and mark the customers’ parts to their exact specifications following a fast and efficient “First Article Inspection Process”. We can now mark most customers parts to their complete satisfaction using any one of several technologies cost-effectively and efficiently typically returned next day or in some cases 1-2 day turn-around depending on volumes and the particulars. 
A unique blend of in-house manufacturing and exclusive distribution of some of the very best marking equipment has allowed Millennium Signatures to fill out and offer a dynamic range of high-quality solutions including Galvo Driven Fibre Laser Marking Technology, Computerized Dot Peen Indent Marking & Scribing from our Marksman Series Products and many of our tried & true processes that date back even long before my time such as Electro-Chemical Etching and Custom Engraved Stamping Dies and Inserts etc., plus many more. 
We have come to learn that a large inventory in our business is very important. When manufacturers go off-line with their Part Marking for whatever the reason, they need quality solutions available fast and Millennium Signatures Marking Systems has invested a great deal of time and money into making that possible for our continuously growing list of clients.

CUSTOM LASER SINTERED METAL NAMEPLATES

At Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc., we prepare Metal Nameplates and Signs to your exacts requirements. Various materials, various thickness, with holes and slots or without. Square corners or rounded corners, whatever you need. We have several processes including Aluminum Anodized Plates, Deep Etch & Fill on Steel & Aluminum, Engraved & Filled and our most popular process Custom Laser Sintered Metal Signs and Nameplates.
Our unique Laser Sintering Process uses a special formulation of granular ceramic materials baked into the cavity created while Laser Marking. This process is highly effective on Stainless Steel and Aluminum Plates and Products. 
The marking is approximately 0.004” in depth and the ceramic powder that is fused into the material provides a Beautiful even texture and great contrast! Laser Sintered Nameplates have been proven to meet the requirements of ASME Certified Shops and are far less expensive than the Deep Etch & Fill Process, especially when it comes to a variety of different variable data or low volumes. 
In addition to Custom Laser Sintered Nameplates, our Custom Part Marking Division also uses this process in some situations to custom mark our clients’ parts. It’s very pleasing to the eye. It’s very durable and most of all, it’s very versatile and cost-effective.

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

If you are thinking of having our Part Marking Specialists process some of your parts for you, please call us at (905) 639-0909 or send us an e-mail at info@millenniumsignatures.com. Allow us to answer your questions, quote on your requirements and discuss your special requirements. We see all kinds of unique requirements daily and we are confident we can accommodate yours.

THANK-YOU FOR 25 YEARS!

August 6th, 2015

It was 25 years ago today. I started out assisting in the effort to familiarize the manufacturing sector with the incredible capabilities of Galvo Driven Nd:YAG Lamp Pumped Laser Technology for Industrial Part Marking Applications. I custom integrated 50, 75, 100 and even 150-Watt Lasers into various different manufacturing environments one by one under the Canadian Laser Technologies label. 25 Years later the company has grown to become Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc., a full service company specializing in Product Identification & Traceability Systems and Services. Today we offer a diverse range of products which still include the latest in Fibre Laser Marking Technology surrounded by several other technologies including:

  • Electro-Chemical Etching
  • Computerized Dot Peen Marking
  • Electric Etch/Scribe
  • Vibro Etch

plus a range of Products & Services such as specialty Marking Inks, custom made Signs, Nameplates and Labels. we have unique services such as our Laser Sintering process and our Custom Parts Marking Services facility. Its hard to believe its been 25 years, but its a great feeling to look back at the growth of the various technologies and reflect upon the thousands of applications we have had a hand in developing. Over the past 25 years we have supplied solutions to assist in the manufacturing process of Aircraft Components, Parts for Nuclear Power Production, Medical & Surgical Instruments and hundreds upon hundreds of unique and interesting custom projects up to and including signage for high-end Fashion Designers and even Hollywood Movie props.

To all of our customers, old and new we thank-you for your support and the opportunity to work on new products and processes with you.
