Ink is supplied to the printhead via the ink reservoir, pressurised using the integrated air-pump (or optionally through plant air).

The supplied mounting bracket and hardware provides a flexible solution to installation in any application.

As the machines are so lightweight - making your own custom mounting brackets to suit your own application is extremely simple.


User serviceable, reliable and low maintenance

The self-contained controller will operate at 110VAC and 220VAC and offers easy adjustment of dot-size, burst-rate and burst time.

The Dotmark is user-serviceable and operates with low maintenance for a cost-effective, simple and reliable ID marking alternative.

Maintenance usually involves purging the unit before a shift to flush the dried ink from the front of the nozzle, which is also an ongoing process during periods of inactivity.

The Dotmark controller is able to control the printhead differently upon receiving a print signal, printing single dots, or spraying a "burst" of dots adjustable in frequency.

  • Single shot mode: produces a single dot when the unit is triggered.
    Single shot mode produces one ink spot

     

  • Continuous mode: produces a “line” of dots as long as the trigger is active.

  • Burst mode: produces a line of dots that can be adjusted in length.
    Burst mode produces a times series of spots

The rate at which the dots are fired is adjustable for both the Continuous mode as well as the Burst mode.

  • Dot printing rate adjustable Lower to Higher
