BENCHMARK 460 Hand-Held Marking System

The BenchMark® 460 is a fully programmable, cost effective alternative to old-fashioned permanent marking techniques for parts too large or heavy to be carried to a marking station. Its hand-held marking head is lightweight and ergonomically designed, while providing a generous 1˝ x 4˝ (25mm x 100mm) marking window. An electromechanical marking pin eliminates the need for any air supply, making the BenchMark® 460 truly portable.
