Marking Heads

Our marking heads are used for hand applied electrochemical marking and are suited to both oxide and below surface etch marking.

We have two types of marking head which come in a number of different sizes:

  • The HM Series which has a stainless steel electrode - the handle is plastic and the electrolyte is applied manually
  • The Carbon Head Series which has a carbon electrode - three handle types can be used including two with a reservoir assembly for easy and clean electrolyte dosing

Both heads can mark flat and curved surfaces. See below for more information.

Also available are our saddle markers, perfect to use on cylindrical parts where the flexible electrode wraps around the tube and rocker markers that are ideal for large marking areas. The saddle markers come in two ranges, one for hand marking and one that works with the ME3000P.

      Please get in touch to discuss applications for custom sized and shaped carbon heads

  • HM Marking Head Series

    The HM range of stainless steel electrode based heads are easy to use and suited to both oxide marking and also deep etching.

    • The electrolyte is applied manually to the pad by the operator
    • Approximately 5-6 marks can be applied before the electrolyte needs to be replenished.
    • A deep etch bridge is available which enables deeper marking when etching
    • The gridpads come in packs of 10 and are easy to change when needed

    HM standard range:

    • HM5 13x31mm
    • HM6 16x38mm
    • HM7 22x41mm
    • HM8 15x64mm
