The MARKTRONIC PORTADOT is a further advancement in the simple and flexible marking of products. The work piece no longer has to be brought to the marking machine; the dot marking machine comes to the product. Almost all materials (up to 62 HRC, 800 VHN) can be marked using the carbide metal stylus.

Programmable markings:

  • in straight lines which can be marked at any angle (0 – 360°)
  • circular or curved labels
  • around cylindrical workpieces

Faster text editing than with traditional marking systems:

text, font size and marking thickness can be changed via the standard keyboard

Simple logos and brands can be created by the user and saved for future use.

Test run function

– the stylus runs across the area being marked, thus reducing the number of wrong marks.

The Varidot font option allows the distance between the dots to be increased, thus improving the clarity of characters marked in larger font sizes. By reducing the distance between the dots, an almost continuous line can be formed.

Various levels of password protection (surcharge applies).

The stylus marks most materials and hardened metals up to 62 HRC, 800 VHN.
