Readable through the Painting Process
Marking of regulators and oil pumps with folding paint mask label
In the past, InLine Hydraulik used metal nameplates to mark components at the end of the production process, which precluded automated integration of digital information and storage or tracing. The new folding paint mask label from Schreiner ProTech is imprinted with a 2D code on-site and manually applied to pumps and regulators at an early stage of the production process. After painting, the paint mask is peeled off, which ensures readability. This new solution made it possible to introduce 2D code marking enabling inLine Hydraulik to optimize the manufacturing process and enhance its reliability. Now, automated traceability is ensured at any time.
Schreiner ProTech’s paint mask solution offers the additional option of combining a removable paint mask label with durable overlamination for permanent protection of the nameplate underneath against mechanical stress. After the drying process of the coats of paint, the protection label is peeled off using a starter tab. This ensures easy handling even when working with gloves. The paint mask itself is a little smaller than the marking label. As a result, the label will remain embedded in the paint after removal of the paint mask film and thus be permanently protected.
