Marksman MKP-054 Enhancements

Marksman Portable

Millennium Signatures Marking Systems is pleased to announce that we have recently made enhancements to our Marksman MKP-054 Hand-Held Portable Bluetooth Marking System. 
Our system has recently been improved with the ability to strike the material harder and using a variety of different fonts resulting in more marking depth and visibility for more durable markings that can in most cases be seen after a paint or powder coat process. 
We also have a very powerful NEW magnetic base that holds the Marking Head very securely during the marking process.

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.

THE MINILASE “E”

Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc. offers the Minilase E as a high quality but cost-effective, entry-level Bench Top Galvo Driven Fibre Laser Marking System complete with the full array of capabilities of the Minilase SE Software. The Minilase E has a small footprint, making it ideal for smaller components, instruments, jewelry, etc. It’s equipped with a 10-Watt Laser that can provide razor-sharp imaging and even excellent annealed marking capability to most metals and is also highly effective on a range of other materials such as plastics, ceramics etc. 
Quality is never sacrificed, the Minilase E is simply not equipped with as many extras. It uses a robust Lab Jack for manual Z-Axis Focal Height Adjustment. It is equipped with a built-in Focal Height Indicator. Given that it is a 10-Watt Laser, it will not be quite as fast or perform marking quite as deep as some of the other more expensive models, but it’s a very well designed Class I Marking System that offers the same level of Image Quality, Marking Speeds and Versatility that only Galvo Driven Laser Technology can offer.
The Minilase Pro SE Software still supports all the same Graphic Editing, Variable Data Control and Barcoding Capabilities as any of our other systems, it’s just been designed for smaller parts and to be at our most economical price point. If you have smaller parts to process, check out the Minilase E.

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
