Metals by far were the largest key manufacturing material of the industrial revolution. While over time an incredibly large number of other material options have been introduced, metals still make up a large percentage of the material of choice today.
Application Description: Many machine shops and machine builders will mark their parts with the standard hammer and punch. We were recently contacted by a machine shop that would produce several of the same parts on a regular basis and often struggled with the amount of time required to produce a single stamped part number.
Application Description: A customer recently came to us with an application that involved placing descriptive images on a selector switch. The current process uses a pad printer. The issues observed were consistency of the paint as well as the paint being able to wear off over time (or with solvents inadvertently) with typical use. We were asked to create samples to increase consistency as well as create a permanent mark.
