Mate Introduces the Enumerator(TM) Tooling - Unique New Tool System for Stamping Sequential Numbers on Fabricated Parts



Anoka, Minnesota: Mate Precision Tooling leads the punching industry with another first - the all new Mate Enumerator(TM) Sequential Numbering Tool designed to stamp sequential serial numbers, dates and codes on fabricated parts.

"This unique tool system extends the punching capabilities of today's CNC punch presses and delivers added value to products in a way previously not possible," reports Andy Spence Parsons, marketing manager for Mate Precision Tooling. "Sequential numbering up to six digits long allows for accurate product traceability required in today's quality processes. It's now easily accomplished within the punching process, eliminating the need for complex machine programming or a costly secondary operation."

Tool System Operates In Two Modes - Features Robust Design For Quality Results

The Mate Enumerator is a thick turret 3-1/2 inch D station special assembly with integral punch holder. At the core of the assembly is a robust spring-loaded stamping head with six numerical stamp wheels. Each wheel features the numbers from 0 to 9 engraved around the circumference. The spring loaded advancing arm of the stamping head engages with a rocker arm that advances the wheel heads one number at a time, from 000000 to 999999. The Mate Enumerator operates in two modes:

Sequential Number Mode: Use this mode to create sequential numbers. The Enumerator will advance by one number for each complete stroke the tool makes. The operator can set the starting number and depth of penetration.

Fixed Number Mode: Use this mode to create fixed numbers such as date, batch number, or part number. The operator can set starting number and depth of penetration.

Additional Mate Enumerator design features include:
o Four external keyways in the 3-1/2 inch D station punch holder allows orientation of the assembly at 0, 90,180 or 270 degrees.
o Standard Enumerator character height of 0.118 inch (3.00 mm) and optional heights available of 6 x 0.098 inch (2.50 mm), 6 x 0.078 inch (2.00 mm) and 6 x 0.059 (1.50 mm).
o Depth of penetration is adjustable in 0.002 inch (0.05 mm) increments for precise control of number appearance.
o Enumerator tool system is designed for use on material thicknesses from 0.020 inch (0.50 mm) to 0.250 inch (6.35 mm).
o Fully self-contained and requires no additional software or machine code. Operates on any thick turret punch press with a 3-1/2 inch D station.
