SCHMIDT's marking machines used by the Firearms Industry.

marking firearms, SCHMIDT uses dot peen to place 2d matrix and human readable on gun

Firearm manufacturers are required by the ATF to meet strict marking identification guidelines for all guns, weapons and firearms manufactured in the United States. They often use 2d data matrix along with human readable marks to achieve compliance with ATF requirements.

SCHMIDT's laser marking systems and dot peen marking machines can mark 2d data matrix, be equipped with readers and verifiers, as well as, any required fixturing for holding and locating the firearms during the marking process. SCHMIDT has the capabilities to completely customize any of our marking systems to perfectly fit your firearm marking application needs.


Custom Application Case History:

A manufacturer of firearms required human readable text and 2D data matrix symbols to be marked into their firearm receivers prior to assembly.

The requirement entailed identifying the receivers with minimum marking depths of .004" and reading and verifying the information provided within the 2D data matrix codes. To satisfy this challenging application, SCHMIDT designed and manufactured three MicroLase® fiber laser marking systems and six Styliner® dot peen pin marking systems. These designs also had to incorporate custom automated fixturing for holding and locating the firearm receivers. These multifunction machines also included vision systems with part specific lighting arrangements and quick change, accurate part locating fixtures.
