TMP1700/470EAS Electric AutoSense PINSTAMP® Single Pin Marking System

The TMP1700EAS is a special electromechanical pin configuration of the versatile TMP1700INSTAMP® marking head, specifically developed for 2-D code applications. It is easily integrated into either on or off-line applications and includes an electromagnetic marking pin and an AUTOSENSE motorized Z-Axis mounting post that ensures a consistent pin stroke for highly repeatable 2-D cell sizes. No operator intervention is required – pattern specific standoff setting ensures that the critical standoff distance is consistently repeated — A great tool for multiple plane marking. The TMP1700/470EAS is the lowest cost electromechanical PINSTAMP® marking system. The rugged TMP1700EAS marking head features a compact, 1-1/2˝ x 2-1/2˝(38.1mm x 63.5mm) window, and marking speeds up to six haracters-per-second.
