With ProPen's M7000 stand-alone micro-percussion marking gun, there is an easy way to permanently mark parts of all types and even hard-to-reach parts, its manufacturer said. The M7000 also excels by its marking performance and unparalleled ease of use, in particular thanks to its built-in touch screen.

Marketed under the ProPen brand, the M7000 is an easily portable marking gun that uses micro-percussion technology to indelibly mark text, logos, timestamps and 2D codes on parts – even those that are heavy, large, flat or curved – for accurate traceability. The M7000 offers added value to industries that, until recently, have had to make do with less practical, less durable and slower marking systems, such as labels, inkjet printing and stamps. Oil and gas, shipbuilding, railway, special vehicles, machine-tools and electrical or military equipment are just a few industries that will find the M7000 particularly advantageous.

The M7000 is an all-in-one solution, ProPen said. The marking unit, controller and control interface are housed together in a single, compact system. No external PC, software or keyboard are necessary. As a result, it is completely autonomous and easy to carry from place to place. Another unique advantage to the M7000 is its waist-mounted Li-ion battery pack that affords unrestricted mobility.

Offering a marking depth that is unique in its class, the M7000 accurately and indelibly marks parts of all types and materials ranging from plastics to the toughest metals. It is perfectly suited to marking rough or treated surfaces (prior to sandblasting, galvanisation, shot-blasting, application of corrosion-resistant paints and other operations) and delivers the level of quality and accuracy required for Data MatrixTM code marking. Its large marking zone (80 × 30 mm) accommodates large characters and a maximum number of applications.

Featuring a lightweight, ergonomic design that substantially dampens vibrations and offering excellent stability, the M7000 makes it easier to create high-quality markings on all vertical or sloped surfaces.

The M7000 also features a 7" color screen with an intuitive interface for unassisted programming of markings. The benefits – time savings and less risk of error – are immediate. Developed by Gravotech, the global leader in durable marking technologies, the multilingual P07 software is a simple, proven and tailored solution that enables fonts, logos and marking files to be imported and exported.

The M7000 is supplied ready to use and, as touch screens are becoming a part of everyday life, requires no training. Designed in France with quality components and impact-resistant composite materials, the M7000 withstands even the harshest industrial environments. Lastly, the M7000 offers good value for money: it contains very few wear parts and does not require any consumables or preventive maintenance; the stylus is engineered for long life and can be resharpened; and the entire system benefits from Gravotech's global support network.
