Marking surgical instruments and tools with unique device identification (UDI) numbers is easy with the MPX-90M direct part-marking device. Unlike traditional dot peen technology, the MPX-90M can accurately imprint permanent two-dimensional DataMatrix barcodes as small as 1 mm2 on hard metals for product tracking and traceability.
Medical device manufacturers can quickly imprint large amounts of data in a compact barcode format as small as one square millimeter. For direct part marking of medical devices, components and surgical instrumentation, this marking device prints on materials ranging from surgical steel, titanium and aluminum to matte plastics and acrylic.
It marks GS1 DataMatrix barcodes for UDI compliance as directed by the FDA. It uses a diamond-tipped stylus that permanently marks hard materials up to 200 HV, including surgical steel, titanium and aluminum, as well as matte plastics and acrylics.
It comes bundled with METAZAStudio software, for quick setup of DataMatrix barcodes and QR codes, as well as text, symbols, photos and graphics. Its medically safe marking will not corrode or degrade materials over time, and the 30-µm imprinting depth assures that barcodes will not be affected by scratches.
A built-in laser pointer and adjustable XY vise make setup quick and easy, while the automated head height function ensures proper image placement. The MPX-90M also features two different nose cones for marking on flat and curved surfaces, plus an adjustable XY axis clamping table for holding flat and oddly-shaped tooling. Software-supported variable data printing lets users automatically customize tools with unique serial numbers, production lot dates and other data.
