With up to 1,000 possible settings, the Multi 4 can mark numbers, letters, logos, special characters and Data Matrix Codes of varying heights and depths. The machine can mark several characters per second and, since the characters are indented into the material, the marking is permanent.

The Multi 4 is made up of two parts: a mechanical marking head and an electronic numerical controller. Lightweight and simple to operate, the system is ready to use right out of the box. Its optional integrated battery makes it fully stand-alone. The Multi 4's character fonts comply with aeronautical and automotive industry standards.

If you would like to view additional Multi 4 application demos (layout programming, marking on steel, arc marking and marking scaled material), please click here.

The Multi 4 is available in four versions, with several different marking head options:
