High-Speed Marking & Coding for Wire and Cable

Manufacturers and distributors of wires, cables and similar products face unique challenges. With tight margins and material costs exerting continual pressure, it is essential to choose specialist marking and coding equipment which is simple to use and minimises total cost of ownership without compromising quality or uptime.

The industry also requires reliable traceability and product identification across a complex range of product sizes, materials and colours - sometimes in difficult production environments, plus with a range of legislative and customer expectations to meet.
