Marking on variable size chassis in hard-to-access areas



A seemingly conventional request, as it involves marking a VIN chassis number on the frames of motorbikes, scooters and quad bikes.

The aim is to develop a specific tool to ensure that the marking gun is held against the frame to be marked.
It is essential to design
a suitable tool for each marking area.

These tools must be attached directly to the marking gun mounted on a balancer.
The latter will be held against the frames by a pneumatic clamping cylinder.

The challenge


SIC MARKING needs to develop a range of tools, as the marking areas have variable geometries and dimensions depending on the vehicle.
The areas are flat, tubular and have different diameters.
The research and development team needed to take into account an
additional parameter: the rate
. The marking gun needed to be able to mark 500 frames, i.e. 1500 markings/day.




To ensure optimum retention and positioning on the frame, during marking, SIC MARKING proposes a clamping solution with an interchangeable tool.

In this particular case, this involves developing a range of tools that can be adapted to the p123 type marking gun. SIC MARKING offered the client a specific development with
integrated clamping (large jaw).
