Columbia Marking Tools, Inc. (Chesterfield Township, MI) introduces its new Slide-A-Mark to quiet the marking of sheet metal parts. The stamp holder is mounted stationary on the opposite side of the part in a special molded sound suppressor material that is slightly raised above the stamps. Each model is offered with optional retracted or dual position sensors for return and advanced position of the cylinder stroke. Strokes can range from 1½ to 12 inches while the marking pressure remains the same. Slide-A-Marks are powered by factory air and controlled by a standard four-way air valve with a regulator to vary the marking force.
