XCOM controller, connected touch-screen controller drives our entire dot Peen/scribing range.

DOT PEEN AND SCRIBING CONTROLLER
XCOM is the solution to pilot dot-peen and scribing machines and to control their integration on production lines. Connected to the main 4.0 industrial environments, XCOM is the most communicative and autonomous control unit on the market.
  • Simplified user experience
    The XCOM controller looks like a tactile tablet (7 “/ 18 cm) and is just as easy to use. From its tactile screen, the operator can quickly set up, edit, program templates, and launch markings. No PC required.
     
  • Hyperconnected XCOM
    The ideal controller for industry 4.0. Just choose your preferred field bus (Profinet, Ethernet IP or EtherCAT) to integrate the XCOM to your process and enjoy a reduced commissioning time and full interoperability on your production line, whichever the PLC and devices used.
     
  • Empower your data
    The data collection and storage feature in the XCOM simplifies the traceability of your products: generate history files, creates dashboards to monitor machines, track your productivity, and set up preventive maintenance. This controller is a powerful tool that will save time, money, and headaches!

Easy to use and powerful, the XCOM simplifies your marking workflow, making it manageable for any operator: user-friendly interface and navigation in the menus, visualization, marking simulation, easy management of parameters and simple launch of the marking. You can identify your parts (text, serial numbers, logo), generate unique codes (Datamatrix, QR codes, UID, GS1) and configure your variables, counters and date codes: all of this with one controller.

Engraving settings management on the XCOM

The XCOM controller is ultra-resistant and has been designed to fit into any environment, even the most demanding ones. Its waterproof touch screen is made of reinforced glass and its casing is highly resistant to shocks.

All the XCOM connections

The safety of our machines and the protection of your data are our top priority. XCOM can connect to most field buses and can be controlled by a PLC, to ensure the reliability of the data exchange. This controller is also equipped with a safety module, an extra-security when integrated on a production line.
