Press Release Summary:
Capris 50-100 processes single core wires and multicore cables with mark, measure, and cut capabilities. Data is input via membrane keypad, and wire changes require no alteration to wire transport or marking system. Able to mark single characters, print flexibility allows up to 30 characters per identification code in horizontal and vertical print formats. System employs solid-state laser technology and handles wires from 26-4 AWG.

World's First Laser Bench-Top Marker
Capris 50-100. The World's First Bench Top UV Laser Wire Marker.
The affordable alternative to hot stamp wire marking
Spectrum Technologies has just introduced a new range of lower cost UV laser wire markers with hugely improved performance/cost ratios. The new products are detailed on our re-launched website, which has undergone a major overhaul and update. If you haven't visited our website recently please check it out. Spectrum Technologies is the international best seller for UV laser wire markers with over 150 customers and supplying to over 30 countries. See www.spectrumtech.com for more details and contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you require further information on our new products.
The CAPRIS 50-100 is the latest development from Spectrum Technologies, the world leader in the design and manufacture of UV laser wire marking and processing systems. It has been developed specifically to provide an affordable replacement to hot stamp wire marking, which is considered an aggressive marking process and unsuitable for current thin wall aerospace wires in particular.
The CAPRIS 50-100 is a radical development in UV solid state laser wire marking technology, featuring all the benefits of Spectrum's market leading CAPRIS wire marking systems packaged into a bench top system. Designed for the processing of single core wires and multicore cables employed in the aerospace and other key industries, the CAPRIS 50-100 provides mark, measure and cut capabilities for wires from 26 AWG up to 4 AWG. The system is designed for total simplicity: data is input via the membrane key pad and wires are easily loaded for processing; wire changes require no alteration to the wire transport or marking system.
Marking a single character at a time, the CAPRIS 50-100 provides maximum print flexibility, allowing for up to 30 characters per identification code in both horizontal and vertical print formats.
The system employs solid state laser technology and requires no day to day consumables and only simple routine maintenance. Significant cost benefits are achieved by comparison to the use of direct ink marking methods and sleeve markers, through increased system utilisation and productivity, reduced set up and maintenance times, reduced consumable usage and the availability of production aids, which further increase productivity and reduce labour costs.
CAPRIS 50-100 brings UV laser wire marking equipment costs down to the level of hot stamp wire markers for the first time. In addition the direct wire and cable identification costs are about 1% of those of heat shrink sleeve identification methods.
Typical applications include aircraft maintenance and modification centres, low volume harness production, cellular manufacturing and rework.
o Non aggressive UV laser marking, no insulation damage
o Complies with SAE AS50881, no need for insulation integrity testing after marking
o Ultimate mark performance resists hot hydraulic fluid, fuel, abrasion
o No pre or post treatment of wire, identification marks remain clear and legible in service
o Highly legible print - ergonomic font complies fully with SAE ARP 5607 "Legibility of Print on Aerospace Wires and Cables"
o Fully integrated mark measure and cut system, simple system set-up, optional connection to host database
o Universal anvil accommodates full range of wire and cable diameters - no set up
o Rapid wire changeover in less than 30 seconds
o No day to day consumables
o Speeds downstream harness manufacture, reduces errors
o Simplifies manufacturing, increasing productivity and reduces costs
o Low direct operating costs
