Marking OCR characters on hot ductile pipes as they leave the centrifugal casting is easy with a SMARKTEC hot casting pipe marker. This equipment uses REA JET paint and spray technology to apply the marking.
Ductile pipes are marked at a temperature of 800°C, then the printed mark resists the post-heating treatment up to 1100°C. The equipment is based on a 6-axes robot cell that has the ability to work with a variety of pipe diameters.
Each robot cell is custom-designed to fit the dimensions of each facility, and it includes all the necessary equipment for mechanical and electrical safety. In addition, each hot casting pipe marker is designed to be integrated into the factory’s PLC network to work automatically and without supervision.
