The automotive industry needs marking systems that offer speed, accuracy, and traceability. Carco provides a comprehensive line of direct and non-contact tire markers and part-identification systems that accomplish all three.
Our systems can be used for the following wheel and tire applications:
Carco’s direct part-marking solutions maintain surface contact on parts and provide a repeatable, non-atomized dot for quick and easy part identification. Our direct marking systems can mark 10,000 to 20,000 parts for every two ounces of marking fluid.
The ES-612 is Carco’s original direct-contact marker. This marker is extremely versatile and comes with custom stroke lengths. Easily mounted in multiple angles and variations, this spring marker allows up to six different head sizes: 1.5, 1, 0.75, 0.5, 0.25, and 0.125 inches.
The ES-712-A allows for a quick drying marking solution. This system can feature a magnetic reed cylinder, customized stroke lengths, and a variety of head sizes, including 1, 0.75, 0.5, 0.25, and 0.125 inches. The ES-712-A Automated Assembly Spring Marker can also be mounted any orientation, allowing for maximum mounting flexibility in your application.
Our non-contact, non-atomizing part marking systems are the ideal solution for tight-fitting areas that require precision. These rapid-drying systems can be used to mark dry, wet, and oiled parts in any orientation.
The ES-800 Series Non-Contact Spray System comes with 3- or 6-inch extensions for any hard-to-reach locations on parts. The system uses quick-drying marking fluids/inks and can be used for high-speed marking and high-precision in-line part marking.
For permanent tire markings, Carco’s Pigmented Inks come in a variety of dry-time formulations and a robust array of color options. Popular fast-drying inks used on rubber components include the XX-1346 and MM-150 formulas. Carco’s F-123 series is excellent for open-pad stamping and roller applications.
For applications which require the removal of marks prior to final OEM assembly, Carco’s Water-Based Inks are industry-leading solutions. Carco’s WS-935 ink provides end-users with a reliable, never-drying ink that can apply repeatable, reliable markings without leading to dried out marking tips. Carco’s WS–910 provides a drying water-based formula that can allow for permanence up until the vehicles final wash!
