GP produces a wide range of high performance paint / ink marking systems for hot and cold metal products (up to 1100°C), able to satisfy the most demanding requirements in terms of good readability, fast marking, reliability, limited maintenance.

This system marks characters on the surface of
hot products
(typically blooms, billets and
beam blanks
), defined by a bright, white line
(“handwritten” type) obtained by spraying a
special paint by a nozzle handled by a six axes
robot or by a electromechanical manipulator
(X Y table).

The markings are very well readable, even in
presence of irregular surfaces, also from
. The system assures excellent reliability
and very low operational costs.
A water base paint can be used, reducing the
environmental impact.
A good resistance in outdoor conditions assures
a long storage in the stockyard.
The fast marking cycle makes easier following
up a fast billet production rate both in a cooling
bed installation and in an evacuation line

Main Marking features:

• Hot application up to 1000°C
• Marking position: typical on the cut section, but possible also on the long side face
• One or more lines, min. character height 30 mm
• Symbols: letters, numbers, special characters (logos)
• Standard or OCR fonts
• Possibility to include a descaler if the surface present scale

Functional features:

• Automatic detection of product size and position (centering device) 
• Anti -clogging system with recirculation system 
• Automatic cleaning system 
• No clamps required 
• Many parameters can be adjusted / selected by the operator via Control 
• Unit, f.i.: Characters dimension (width, compression, height) 
• Host connection (Ethernet, Profibus or other common industrial field bus)

Option functions:

• High pressure water descaler
• Mechanical descaler
• automatic detection of the product dimension and position (centering device)
• Possibility to integrate with an inspection or shape detection camera
• Using OCR fonts, markings can be automatically read by our AURS system (combined marking / reading function to achieve automatic tracking of billets)
