Print Thermo Branders
you need a permanent mark on extruded plastic
products, the Matthews Hot Print continous rotary
branders can get the job done. This friction-driven
system is ideal when ink marking alone does
not meet code requirements. Available in two
styles, with or without foil, both units use
heated steel type to form a crisp indented mark
that is permanently imbedded in plastic pipe
and other in-line extrusions.
Some new enhancements to this product line include
a tape-saver motor & retrograde tape-saver
kit designed to prohibit the foil tape waste
involved in typical continuous marking processes.
By purchasing a model with this feature or retrofitting
a tape-saver motor to your existing Hot Print
Brander, all colored tape is consumed at a reduced
rate eliminating space holding characters. This
innovation allows for a great reduction in the
production cost of marking foil tapes.
The resulting mark is abrasion-resistant, making
the product suitable for both outdoor and underground
use. For a high-contrast mark, the Thermo Foil
brander adds the option of embedding a colored
foil into the branded mark. The result is a
highly visible, yet permanent mark on ABS, polybutylene,
polyethylene, PVC and Styrene. Installing a
Hot Print Model 4015 Brander on your extrusion
line is effortless. The systems come complete
with a mounting stand and deluxe guide rolls
to accomodate pipe ranging in size from 1/2"
to 8" (12.5 mm - 200.8 mm).
