Increasing Productivity with a Metal Marking Press

Increasing Productivity with a Metal Marking Press

Metal marking presses are an ideal solution for applications where short cycle times are demanded but other marking methods don’t fit the bill. They offer users a great degree of flexibility (both manual and pneumatic options) in what can be achieved, broadening a shops capability without being an overly complicated solution.

How do Metal Marking Impact Presses Work?

Durable Mecco's impact presses, available as both manual and pneumatic models, generate force via the compression and release of an impact spring. High-volume, repetitive indent marking applications are best handled with the use of impact presses which achieve a very short cycle time that cannot be met with any other marking method.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Ted Strother of King Electronics found that an impact is superior to gradual pressing in its application. "Durable Mecco was able to recommend an impact press for our assembly operation to insert one part into another without deforming the part. We used to perform this application by hand but the press provides a quick, easy, repeatable solution."
