Eliminating the need for secondary marking operations, Tapmatic's TapWriter is a CNC marvel that scribes numbers, text, date codes, or artwork directly onto your workpiece. This innovative dot-marking tool operates without spindle rotation, making it a versatile and efficient addition to your machining process.
Utilizing a long-life carbide stylus or a ballpoint, the TapWriter effortlessly creates fine lines on your workpiece. What sets it apart is its ability to mark curved surfaces without requiring adjustments to the Z-axis, offering precision without compromise.
Part numbers, serial numbers, date codes, and even logos can be effortlessly etched onto your materials, whether they are soft or hard, with a hardness of up to 62 HRC. This adaptability makes the TapWriter an indispensable tool for various industries.
Installation is a breeze as the TapWriter seamlessly integrates with machining centers or CNC lathes equipped with live tooling. It employs standard engraving software, eliminating the need for delicate cutting tools and high-speed spindles, streamlining your workflow.
The TapWriter's versatility extends to the materials it can mark. Whether it's soft plastics or hardened steel up to 55 RC, its durable carbide stylus ensures a precise mark, even on uneven or rounded surfaces.
Speed is a defining characteristic of the TapWriter, boasting a remarkable capacity of up to 80 characters per minute, contingent on your machine's capabilities. Its efficiency makes it a favored choice in the aerospace industry, where gentle curves in the dot's cross-section prevent stress concentration.
With the TapWriter, you are in control of every aspect of your mark, from revolutions per minute dictating dots per minute to the velocity of the carbide stylus when it impacts your workpiece. It's time to take the hassle out of marking and embrace the precision, efficiency, and control offered by Tapmatic's TapWriter.
