Adrian Sunderer, product manager Hommel+Keller, explains: “A focal point for the development was the new standard programme in the modular system, which allows operators to mark their components flexibly, individually and without any significant investment.”

The set comprises series 432 marking tools with segment carriers. Exchangeable segments are available: a letter set (A-Z), a number set (0-9) and special characters (minus, dot and slash). All characters can also be obtained individually.

“The ease with which the segments can be exchanged offers countless letter and number combinations,” says Sunderer. “Since the tools are used on lathes and milling machines, the components no longer have to be transferred to separate machines for marking. This all helps to reduce non-productive time.”
