with Eubanks Wire Markers
Model 67200 (center) can be used with Eubanks wire strippers for either
end marking or continuous marking at pre-set intervals. Shown with 6415

Eubanks wire marking machines mark wire clearly and permanently through
the use of marking foil and heated marking discs. By providing positive,
easy-to-read wire identification, these machines permit the exclusive
use of white wire or wire of a single, solid color. They eliminate time
consuming processes, such as tagging or sleeving, and the need for large
inventories of colored wire. Eubanks marking discs are precision-made.
Pressure, heat and dwell-time are all closely controlled to assure consistent
high-quality marking. The discs are easily rotated to make character changes.
(The AutoTab, a fully auto- mated machine described in a separate product
bulletin, offers motorized disc changing.)
COMMON TO EUBANKS WIRE MARKERS
SIZES - Standard Eubanks wire markers will mark wire sizes
ranging from 0.035" to 0.150" O.D. (0.89 to 3.81mm). With conversion
kits, they will accommodate up to 0.300" O.D.(7.6mm).
DISCS - The tool steel discs on which the characters are engraved
are heat treated then chrome plated for long life. The accuracy of the
character height is held to + or - 0.001" (0.025mm). Each disc has
39 characters (the alphabet, numbers 0 to 9, right and left arrows, and
a dash) plus a blank spot. Special order discs are available with custom
CONTROL - Marking disc temperature is set by a con- controller
on the front panel. Once the discs reach the desired temperature, it will
be maintained until the machine is shut off or the setting changed.
GLASS - The Eubanks marking head has a built-in, lighted magnifying
glass for reading the orienting characters on the marking discs.
PRESSURE - Compressed air pressure is controlled by a regulator
and gauge on the front panel. The machines should be connected to a compressed
air source with pressure of 80- 100 psi (5.5 - 7.0kg/cm2). Stamping pressure
is reduced to 25 - 60 psi (1.75 - 4.22kg/cm2), depending on the type of
insulation being marked and the number of characters being printed.
- Dwell-time, the time the marking discs and foil are in contact with
the wire, is variable from 20 to 900 milliseconds and is controlled from
the front panel or keyboard, depending on the machine model.
anvil serves to position the wire accurately and to cradle it when the
foil and type are pressed against it. Anvils are made of aluminum, and
are custom made to fit the O.D. of the material to be marked to the nearest
0.001" (O.025mm). Special anvils are available for limp, small diameter
wire and parallel conductor wires.
FEED - The foil feed mechanism moves the foil forward each
time the machine cycles. It will accommodate foil in rolls from 1/2" to
3 1/2" wide (12.7- 88.9mm) and up to 600' long (185m).
FOIL - Foils are available for marking all of the commonly
used insulations, such as Teflon, PVC, Kapton, etc.
EQUIPMENT - Machines are supplied with 10 marking discs and
three anvils as standard equipment. They may be ordered with fewer discs
or with as many as 30.
- Electrical - 115 VAC, 10A, 50/60 Hz or 230 VAC, 5A, 50/60 Hz. Compressed
Air - 80- 100 psi (5.5- 7.0kg/cm2), minimum of 1/2" I.D. (12.7mm) air
line from air source to machine.
