Marking Windows

Compact industrial integration scribe marking system with heavy-duty frame and an all screw drive system to ensure precise operation. The marking speed is 3-5 characters per second. It has a very small footprint with 3 sides available for mounting. These systems come with two marking window options: medium and large size.

Marking Windows:

  • IMS60 1.59" x 2.35" (40mm x 60mm)
  • IMIS200 - 8" x 8" (200mm x 200mm)
  • For larger marking windows see the I-Mark C Series

Controller Attributes

The I-Mark Model 200 controller has a compact design for easy installation into production equipment. There is a selection of communication options including remote programming over LAN, and operational controls via I/O, modbus, serial and Ethernet IP.

Industrial Build

The I-Mark I Series scribe marking head has air and controller connection located on the back of the marker. The system is built of a solid aluminum frame with ½” plates on three sides for easier mounting, all pre-drilled and tapped. The X-Y axes are powered with high-torque stepper motors and a ball screw drive for precise positioning. The all-metal pin housing has a pneumatically powered pin with carbide tip to mark materials up to 45 RC. The system is very flexible and can be mountable in any orientation.


I-Mark Software

I-Mark software is provided free with the purchase of any I-Mark machine. I-Mark software has a tremendous amount of horsepower, but it is extremely Windows® user-friendly and easy to operate. Simple drag-and-drop functionality makes program creation and entity sizing easy. CMT even includes several dozen video tutorials to enable the operator to refresh his/her memory if they’ve forgotten exactly how to do something.

Package Contents

Complete ready to install marking package for the I-Mark I Series dot peen marking unit includes:

  • Marking head with ball screw drive X-Y axis
  • Modular controller with a wide selection of communication protocols
  • USB Drive with I-Mark software
  • Power cable
  • Communication, LAN cable

All the needed elements to have a complete turnkey marking station.

  • I-Mark M and MS Series
  • I-Mark I Series
  • CMT Eclipse LE24 Round
  • CMT Eclipse LE48 Large Bed
  • CMT Eclipse Tunnel Automated Conveyor

The positioning of the marking head is important for a variety of reasons. For dot peen and scribe marking processes the marking head must be positioned very near the part. However, the part needs room to be moved in and out of the marking fixture.

The 6” pneumatic approach is designed for rugged industrial environment and heavy production requirements. The air-powered stage will quickly advance and retract to one set position. This solution is well suited for high-volume production conveyor line operations and fast cycle times.

The 1” pin to part approach is especially designed for the I-Mark I Series. The 1” approach provides the needed space to accommodate automated loading and unloading operations.

High-volume industrial part marking is inevitably not the cleanest manufacturing environment. Industrial traceability is usually located in or near forging, machining or welding cells. Traceability of the parts is most often required at the most critical and difficult manufacturing point. This point is also prone to significant metal debris.

The addition of a flexible bellows is the most popular machine shield option. This is a great solution for installations with the pin pointing up. Bellows protect the internal working parts of the marking system. The flexible bellows option is available in standard and high temperature material.

High-volume industrial part marking is inevitably not the cleanest manufacturing environment. Industrial traceability is usually located in or near forging, machining, or welding cells. Traceability of the parts is most often required at the most critical and difficult manufacturing point. This point is also prone to significant metal debris.

The stainless steel shield provides complete protection from dust and airborne particles. It is designed for industrial applications for protection from fluid and weld spray. Because of the moving plates, this style of shield is not recommended with the pin “up” position. Also, this design is not available for the largest marking windows.

  • I-Mark IM300 Dual station
  • I-Mark C - Custom designs

The I-Mark dot peen and scribe systems are used in automated robot work cells. When the part is held by the root during the marking process a pedestal mounted marking station is a perfect fit.

The pedestal mount is also used to quickly install a marking station along a conveyor line. Single- or double-headed stations are available.
