Often when manufacturing sheet metal fabrications for a customer they want to be able identify the part in their stores area or in production. Sheet metal parts which are then used in the field may need to be identified for spares and servicing, 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 3000R is the most efficient solution.
We 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 simply be reprogrammed without any cost.
