Multi 4-50 from Dapra Is the Compact Solution for Direct Part Marking

Dapra Marking is pleased to announce the introduction of a versatile, compact head for industrial marking applications where space is a premium. The Multi 4-50 has a 50 x 60 (1.96" x 2.36") marking window and is ideal for Handheld marking on larger parts in reduced access areas or as an Integrator unit for automated marking.

The Compact 50 x 60 is a great complement to the standard Multi 4 model with a 120 x 60 (4.72" x 2.36") marking window. Both models are completely electric (requiring no air supply to operate) and feature an embedded controller containing user-friendly software, an integral membrane keyboard and an easy-to-read LCD screen.

Like the standard Multi 4, the Multi 4-50 is available in four basic versions: a bench-top model; the aforementioned portable or handheld model for marking large parts; a Combo model which combines bench-top and portable capabilities; and an Integrator model for use in automated production lines.

IDI technology (Innovative Driving Impact), for improved mark quality, is a feature only available on Multi 4 marking systems. IDI assures consistent dot depth on uneven, curved or irregular part surfaces. As required by the DoD, Automotive, Aerospace and other global industries, the Multi 4 can be provided with the TechnoMatrix option, to create and mark DataMatrix codes directly on your workpiece for better part traceability and tracking.

Dapra Marking offers complete solutions using Dot Peen, Laser and Electrochemical marking technologies, from standard handheld and bench models to custom engineered and turnkey systems.
