Gravotech - metal marking machine

SV510 - Direct part marking for precise and deep engraving with reduced noise

SV510 scribing machine for sharp and deep marking, up to 0.3mm depth on metals, perfect for VIN marking. Designed for the toughest environments and to meet your every need, SV510 is integrable in any production line, automated or manually operated.
    The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) marking on chassis requires a reliable scribing machine, able to perform deep marking on all materials, from soft, such as aluminum to the hardest steels at a high speed. Our SV510 scribing marking machine has been used for more than 10 years with automotive products, proving fantastic durability and strength.
    Scribing technology performs silent marking on hollow metal parts (tubes and pipes) or formed plate (chassis and body parts) when these objects will naturally resonate during rotary marking. SV510 scribe marking machine creates a high quality, smooth and silent marking with depth, for QR code engraving, and deep engraving making it easier to proofread.
    Designed to combine depth with high speed and aesthetic results, our scribe marking machine has one of the best-marking speed/depth ratios: less than 10 seconds to mark 17 characters of 7mm height. Powerful and fast, this machine creates deep marking before and after the treatment of parts.

Automotive traceability on production lines

The SV510 is the ideal solution for marking metal parts of various shapes and surfaces finishes, mainly for the following sectors, Automotive (VIN marking, engine block, etc.) Construction, (steel structure, etc.), Offshore (pipes, valves, fittings, etc.), and identification such as QR Code engraving.  

Our range of products is easily transformed into a mobile solution to mark large parts. It can be used on stationary or moving production lines. Efficient fixturing of the machine is insured using clamping devices and part presence detectors. It can be mounted to a bridge, gantry or robot.

VIN Marking on metal parts

To ensure traceability and avoid counterfeit parts, the automobile industry systematically marks all the parts that make up a vehicle. This VIN engraving machine will mark VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) required in accordance with ISO standards on all cars leaving the factory.

With the SV510, you have the guarantee to reach the minimum depth defined in the standards (.007 or 0.01 in depending on the country). Our engineering team also develops customized hardware and software to exactly fit your process and your ERP system, with strict controls, checks for duplicates and dedicated interfaces for your operator.

This VIN marking machine can handle more than 20 materials
