The METAZA MPX-95 is a photo impact printer. With its diamond stylus it can add custom text, data and images with photographic detail onto a variety of hard metals, such as stainless steel, iron, titanium and platinum, as well as softer substrates like gold, silver, copper, nickel, aluminum and acrylic – quickly and with pinpoint accuracy.
One application is medical and industrial part marking. Within healthcare environments, the MPX-95 can serve as a UDI (Unique Device Identification) barcode impact printer. It allows the user to easily imprint individual instruments with a serial number, 3D symbol or other marking to better manage the stock availability, location, usage history and maintenance records of those instruments.
A DPM (Direct Part Marking) Kit enhances the impact printer’s specialized capabilities. The DPM kit consists of software that generates unique identifiers for each instrument, as well as a gripping vise, a moveable center vise and clamp pins. Both vises allow the position of the item to be fine-tuned by aligning it with the laser pointer after it has been clamped.
The MPX-95 has a removable base table and plate, allowing it to work with a greater range of items, including larger objects. Bundled METAZA Studio software lets users import, edit and process images and text out of the box. A laser pointer assists in identifying the area to be marked, enabling users to imprint items easily and precisely without any special training.
