what to look for in tool marking equipment

Printing Fine Detail & Variable Data: You’ll want to look for a complete system (software and printer) that allows you to EASILY work with variable data – serial numbers, barcodes, etc. The team of IDS print experts also recommends having samples produced so you can gauge overall print quality and clarity of small text. Ask for a watch dial and you may be amazed on the level of detail UV printing can achieve.

Durability of the print: Industrial tools, serial plates, and dial faces aren’t going to just sit on a shelf for display purposes. They will be used, cleaned, and potentially spilled on. Operators will need to ensure proper adhesion is achieved to the substrate and they need to be confident in the ink formulation’s ability to stand up to being cleaned, wiped, and handles.

Applicable Printers: PRISMA Z-Max, Mimaki UJF-6042 MKII e
