Among the range of benchtop marking machineS, the extreme accuracy and speed of the c303 mounted unit are unmatched. Using a unique electromagnetic marking technology, the column mounted marking machine c303 can adapt to various shapes and surface conditions, whether flat, concave, convex, circular, or raw. Capable of marking any material (including plastics and hardened steel up to 62HRC), it requires only one source of energy. Its integrated counter, the large 300x150 mm marking window and the LED lighting make it an extremely accurate and an all-purpose marking machine.

Electronic features

The e10 controller provides its operator with a direct and easy-to-use interface. Its large graphic display and membrane-protected QWERTY keyboard make it perfect for use in industrial environments. Because the control box does not have any openings or ventilation, its interior electrical components are protected from harsh elements such as water, chemicals, dust, and material fragments. 

Marking files can be up/downloaded from a PC to the controller using a USB key, or entered and edited directly on the machine. The e10's (included) comprehensive software package allows for linear, angular, radial, and mirror image marking, and an optional booster card can be used for deep marking. An additional 3rd and 4th axis circuit board can be installed to control a motorized column and rotary axis. The software package incorporates self-diagnostic and machine history functions, making it a "smart" user friendly machine.

Premium plate holder

Attaches to marking system base. Holds plate sizes up to 100x300 mm (4" x 12")


  •  Quick and easy clamping
  •  Provides constant, repeatable marks
  •  Frees up operator during marking operation
  •  Quick release for rapid change of part to mark

Maintenance Kit

Extended maintenance kits contain most common replacement parts for repairs or preventive maintenance, extending machine life.


  • Dot peen stylus assembly
  • Origin detector
  • Stylus
  • Spring mechanism
  • A set of drive belts (depending machine type)
  • Vaseline oil lubricant (to be ordered separately)

D rotary axis for e10 range (electric version)

This option, available on any column, peen or scribing device, allows you to mark parts up to 35 kg and with a diameter up to 250 mm. It marks long parts (tube ...) with a through chuck. The control software is included.


  • 125 mm drill chuck
  • Cable between the axis D and the marking controller
  • Bits set for clamping parts on the inside: -maximum bore of the part 116 mm tight
  • Bits set for clamping parts on the outside: -125 mm maximum diameter clamping
  • Third axis chip for the controller marking

D rotary axis for e10 range (pneumatic version)

This option, available for use with all e10 column-mounted dot-peen or scribing systems, allows marking of parts up to 35 kg and with a diameter of up to 250 mm.


  • Pneumatic clamping for quick insertion / removal of parts - well suited for medium and large series. 
  • A limited clamping stroke of 1.5 mm ensures maximum operator safety.
  • Control software included.
  • Only one connecting cable between the D axis and the marking system controller

Button box

Box with on / off buttons. Remote system start/stop. 2.5 m connection cable to controller.


  • Can start marking cycles manually.
  • Easy plugging

Autosensing function

Associated with the digital Z third axis, the integrated sensor, also known as "autosensing", ensures a pre-determined distance between the stylus and part. The autosensing feature enables automatic adjustment to different part heights. This option ensures perfect mark consistency, even with varying geometries or dimesional tolerances. A key feature to provide optimal read rates for machine readable marks (2D, Data Matrix codes, etc...).

Autosensing option associated with a digital Z-axis allows:

  • Automatic detection of the part
  • Automatic stylus to part positionning for optimal mark readibility


  • Maximal Dot-Peen Accuracy / Repeatability Ideal for Data Matrix code marking
  • Positioning accuracy: + / - 0.05 mm
  • Approach speed: 50 mm / second

Automatic Z axis, 50-250 mm stroke (for column-mounted)

The digital Z axis allows the marking head to access difficult areas or mark on several levels in one cycle. Available in various sizes.

  • 50-250 mm Z axis for column-mounted product range

Equipment needed
Third axis board integrated into the e10 controller. Powers and controls the digital Z axis.
Interchangeable axis
Used on all SIC Marking dot peen & light-duty scribing systems with minimal adaptation.


  •  Sturdy design based on stepper motors and lead screw
  •  Makes use of two industrial grade guiding rails
  •  Dedicated adapter plate to fit all marking heads
  •  Driven by third axis board integrated to the e10 controller
  •  Only one connection required: to e10 controller
  •  Advance speed : 50mm/s (2"/s)


  • Part markings on different levels in same operation
  • Can avoid obstacles in the marking area
  • Allows displacement marking head for part removal
  • Compact and easy to integrate, reducing integration costs
  • Movement is controlled through e10 marking file, which avoids requirement for an external controller
