The new FlyMarker® mini from Rocklin Manufacturing Co. (Sioux City, IA) is the landmark fourth generation of the battery-operated FlyMarker dot peen marking system. Housed in an ergonomically designed, compact unit that weighs only 6 lb, the mini can be carried throughout the shop with no annoying power or air cables needed. Its strong magnet and powerful battery rapidly produce durable and unforgeable markings on nearly any material ranging from plastics to aluminum to steel. The versatile mini also marks round parts, with automatic height compensation up to 5 mm.
The marking files can be programmed via self-explanatory software on the unit itself and includes storage space for several hundred files. Alternatively, one can create the marking files using optional PC software and then transfer to the mini using its built-in USB interface. Logos, data matrix codes, integrated bar code scanners, and solid column frames for conversion to a tabletop unit are just a few of the optional accessories.
The FlyMarker mini is being offered for a short time at a special discounted price of $5,750 (vs. a regular price of $6,990). Truly portable marking has never been more affordable.
Equipment Sales Co.
