Marking on medical implants before bending



Our client, a world leader in technologies, services and solutions for the medical sector, wanted to mark implants before bending. This involves custom unit marking for a given patient before the part is shaped.
Marking is performed on straight rods.

The challenge


The solution needs to mark very long rods over 360 degrees, two at a time.
This marking is high-contrast and respects the implant’s mechanical properties.
The client cautions against the risk of breaking the surface during marking and shares their concerns about altering the material’s properties.

As a result, software to produce a unique marking on each part with alphanumeric information and features and different references from one part to another, needs to be provided.
This software must allow the client’s data to be retrieved, in order to mark the implant in the right place.

The validation of marking with the client following successive
metallurgic analysis
enabled a
reliable and personalised solution to be developed.
For the 1200 XXL-Box, in order to be compatible with the maximum size of parts, SIC MARKING developed
a dedicated double rotary axis with a quick gripper system to ensure that handling is ergonomic
and, above all, faster and more precise.
For this order, SIC MARKING developed
specially designed custom software, which is able to communicate with client’s internal system.

The machine produced has a marking head mounted on an axis controlled by the software that moves the marking head along the entire length of the rods.
