Gravotech - metal marking machine

XF510r, scribing machine for direct part marking

SCRIBING MACHINE
This online marking system delivers direct part marking on your parts while keeping noise to a minimum. Quiet enough to meet the noise controls in the strictest standards, it is the industrial solution for marking metal sheets.
  • Silent direct part marking
    Scribing machines makes sense on hollow metal parts (tubes and pipes) or formed plate (chassis and body parts) which will naturally resonate during mechanical marking. Scribing machines, by reducing the number of impacts, will allow a smooth and silent direct part marking with high contrast, making it easier to proofread. Thanks to the Datamatrix kit we offer you the possibility to switch to a dot peen marking machine when you need to mark a 2D code.
     
  • High marking quality
    Our metal marking machines are designed to combine depth with aesthetic results: speed, strength and position can be configured for perfect direct part marking consistency and legibility meaning a high possibility to survive at the painting process. This gives the highest quality characters with the existing fonts.
     
  • Robust & durable scribing machine
    Composed of high rigidity guide rails and high-performance styluses: high amplitude, anti-burrs and a diamond tip. The robustness and precision of this industrial marking solution come from the quality of its construction, ensuring the user high performance, low maintenance, power and air consumption.

XF510r: Technifor innovative scribing machine

The XF510r comes from an old line of scribing machines.


Technifor, our historical brand dedicated to industrial markets, developed the dot peen marking technology in 1985 but also dramatically improved the scribing technique. Unlike dot peen, the scribing tip does not vibrate but slides along the surface, tracing a continuous homogeneous line.

Technifor has adapted this scribing technology to offer smooth and near silent direct part marking on metal and hollow parts. In 2003, the CN, Technifor first scribing marking head, was born! During the year, they kept the sturdy and reliable mechanics of the old machines and added new features such as a highly communicative control unit.

Today, the modern XF510r and the XCOM benefit from 30 years of expertise, making Gravotech the most technically advanced producer of scribing machines.
