Often when manufacturing sheet metal workfor a customer they want to be able identify the part in their stores and production areas. Sheet metal parts which are then used in the field may need to be identified for spares and servicing purposes, CNC engraving can be a useful solution. If there is a large volume of parts required then a part number stamp can be used but if there are a range of different sheet metal parts and only small to medium volumes then CNC engraving on our Trumpf CNC 3000Ris the most efficient solution. It use a stylus that vibrates 1000′s of times a minute to mark the sheet metal. An added advantage of using a CNC punch press to do this engraving is any changes to the information required by the customer in their part number, issue level etc can easily be reprogrammed without any cost to you.
