ES-1518 Mini-Contact


Featuring a compact dual-component design, Carco’s ES-1518 Mini Marker integrates seamlessly into manufacturing environments with limited space while providing the same precision and reliability as our popular ES-612 marker.


  • Precision Marking: Using a double-acting air cylinder this system achieves neat, consistent marks with a controlled application process that ensures the quality and readability of every imprint.
  • Economical & Efficient: Uses an innovative ink delivery system that uses 2 ounces of fluid for every 10,000 to 20,000 parts.
  • Various Mounting Options: Its double-acting, non-rotating block mount allows the marker to be fixed in any orientation. The ES-1518 features a marking head assembly that can be mounted in any orientation and a bracket assembly that can be easily adjusted for fine precision after mounting.
  • Automated Fluid Management: Features an automatic back surge system that continuously mixes the marking fluid, preventing settling and solidification and ensuring smooth operation and consistent mark quality.
  • Independent System Control: The system’s spring marker and ink pump operate independently but in harmony and can be controlled via a programmable logic controller (PLC) for precise functionality.
  • Customizable Usage: Offers adjustable cycle settings for pump activations to suit various operational needs, enhancing flexibility and reducing waste.
