Plasma Marking

Having the correct part makes all the difference.                   

When the leading distributor for most major brands of tank trailer components needs to mark their parts, they rely on the Thermal Dynamics® Ultra-Cut® XT system. Many parts look the same and yet are completely different, such as a left and right bumper mount. Using plasma to mark on identification numbers produces legibile, clean results that allow their customers to always be sure they are using the correct component.

Ultra-Cut® XT systems are capable of plasma marking on mild steel and non-ferrous materials. In order to get solid markings, argon is used to produce a clean, clear line, which is easy to read and will remain visible indefinitely.

Plasma marking uses the same consumable parts as the cutting process, so no consumable part changes are necessary. You can even switch seamlessly from marking to cutting on the same part with no operator intervention. All this is done on a fully-automated Ultra-Cut system controlled by an intelligent iCNC with embedded process parameters, leading to faster cycle times and more productive cutting.

For precision parts marking, select Thermal Dynamics. Marking is just one of the many Solutions for precision cutting found in the Thermal Dynamics product line.
