The technical sales team at Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc., specializes in a few select processes designed to support a manufacturers requirement to properly and professionally and permanently identify their products whether it be for Traceability, Brand Labeling or important Safety Information. Millennium Signatures will have a process that will get the text and/or graphics you need on your product in a manner that will suit your production needs. When it comes to our Computerized Dot Peen Marking Process, Millennium Signatures’ Marksman product is the best we’ve ever worked with. Our experience with Pin Marking or (Pin Stamping) systems goes back to the very first system of its kind ever to be introduced to the marketplace back in 1988. Since that time Millennium Signatures has become extremely knowledgeable in what materials, design characteristics and features have proven to provide the best results. We have produced our Top TEN list in an effort to sort through all the various aspects of what makes our systems the best value and present the most important things to consider in a short list making it easier for you to compare and understand why our systems will serve your needs best.
PLUG & PLAY – Easy to set-up and use The way we have designed these systems allows for component interchangeability and plug and play connectability. Our systems are very easy to set-up and use. In some cases if its desired, we will completely assemble and test your system exactly as you would intend to use it in such a manner that all you would need to do is fold down the sides of the crating, remove protective foam and plug into a 110V Outlet and you are fully ready to use the equipment. Having the system shipped this way does result in slightly higher shipping costs given that it is a crate as opposed to two or three boxes coming via courier, but this option is available. Assembly of the systems is also very easy should you wish to put the main components together on your own. There is no need to stress over problems that may be encountered during set-up because we ship these systems throughout North and South America daily and we have getting you operational quickly and easily down to a science.
THREE CONFIGURATIONS AVAILABLE Millennium Signatures offers our systems in any of three (3) different configurations. We can provide our Computerized Dot Peen Marking Technology as a Bench Top Marking Solution, a Portable (Hand-Held) Pistol Grip Style Marking Solution or as a Universal Mount (Integrator Series) configuration which allows for easy integration into existing automation such as production lines and cells.
PRECISION MACHINED COMPONENTS Computer Controlled Stamping Technology has proven its effectiveness over the past 25 years. They are cost effective to buy, maintain an extremely low cost of ownership over many years, they are still a mechanical device that uses a number of moving parts and provides an impact. Millennium Signatures has never lost sight of this fact and Marksman product is designed to be durable year after year. We do not use cast aluminum components, all of our systems are made with precision designed components that are put together with the best materials. Our systems handle operating environments ranging from an office environment right through to very dirty manufacturing environments. We have watched our equipment endure environments so harsh our systems were virtually unrecognizable to us. Millennium Signatures does not put any time or money into flashy colour schemes, molded cowlings or snappy decals. We produce Industrial Marking Equipment not fashionable sports cars. We put our focus behind equipment that works and lasts.
PRECISION REINFORCED COG BELT & BALL SCREW DRIVEN SYSTEMS Millennium Signatures’ Marksman Product are available with both of these technologies. The precision reinforced cog belt drive design is very precise and makes for a more cost effective solution. These systems are perfect for most applications. They are durable and maintain their accuracy. Should you purchase a system with the intent of doing a lot of Machine Readable Coding such as 2D Matrix or UID codes, you should consider our Ultra Precise Ball Screw Driven Systems. These systems are just that much more robust and accurate and reliable when it comes to Machine Readable Codes.
ELECTRIC & AIR DRIVEN SOLENOID SYSTEMS Millennium Signatures’Marksman Products are available in both Air Driven or Electric Solenoid System Designs. Both of these system designs perform almost identically. We offer both solutions so that a client who has special circumstances such as using a Portable System from a Service Truck or moving a system to various parts of a plant that may or may not have a good source of compressed air readily accessible does not need to concern themselves with this additional hook-up. However when it comes to clients who are trying to meet a depth specification such as ASME for example, the adjustability of the air Pressure can offer a little more versatility. Typically Air Driven Solenoid Systems are more popular than the Electric, but for those applications where Electric is a better fit, we offer an excellent product. Please be sure to specify which Solenoid Design you would like at time of ordering.
PC LINK & REMOVABLE READ/WRITE STORAGE All of our systems come with our JS-2000 Software allowing you to link up to a PC for the purposes of programming and controlling your system, transferring graphic files from CAD to the Marking System or backing up layouts etc. However only two (2) of our systems rely on this software. Our entry level machine known as the Model MS-300L require a PC to be connected in order to control and operate the systems. All of our other systems come with a compact controller (MS-200BN or MS-100N) which is fully capable of controlling all aspects of the system without any need for a PC! Both of these controllers are also equipped with an SD Card Read/Write Drive that allows data to be backed up or files transferred. Our NEW MS-200BN Controller is now also equipped with a USB port to allow for the option of using a flash drive if preferred. Even our systems that use the stand alone controllers come complete with the JS-2000 Software and can be connected up with a PC is desired.
2D MATRIX / UID MACHINE READABLE CODE CAPABLE Millennium Signatures incorporates the ability to mark 2D Matrix or UID Codes on to your product into every system. Producing a code has never been easier. You simply enter the information into a field on the controller and select 2DM as the type of marking and then scale your code to suit. The system software looks after the conversion flawlessly and makes code marking as easy to produce as regular alphanumeric text or graphics. For periodic marking of Machine Readable Codes, any of our systems can produce a good readable code on your product, however for applications where 2D Matrix or UID Code marking is the intended purpose of the equipment, our Ball Screw Driven Systems are recommended due to their extra level of accuracy and repeatability.
INTERCHANGEABILITY OF COMPONENTS One of the most attractive aspects of how the Marksman Line was developed is that in almost every case, the various components between systems are interchangeable. For example, controllers and marking heads are not custom matched. Various models of our Controllers are plug and play compatible with our various Marking Heads. This proves to be very beneficial in allowing Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc., or your local area representative for supporting you using our temporary swapout program in the event you should experience a problem with your system that may warrant repair. It is also beneficial if you should wish to upgrade to a larger marking head at some point in the future or upgrade to a Ball Screw driven system should your product requirements change down the road. It’s just another unique feature that makes our systems and service capabilities versatile and potential downtime to an absolute minimum.
EMERGENCY SWAP OUT REPAIR SERVICE Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc., is proud to offer an emergency swap out service if it should become necessary that a part of your system requires repair and a few days is needed but down time is not an option! Given the versatility of our system as described briefly above, we can get you a Marking Head or a Controller to take the place of your equipment while we make any necessary repairs regardless if we are repairing your system in one of our repair facilities or on-site at your facility. Lost time does not have to occur. Even if we do not have your exact model of Controller or Marking Head ready at that moment, any of our equipment can take the place of another and bridge the gap of your original equipment until repairs can be finalized.
SYSTEMWARRANTY Millennium Signatures is now pleased to offer a Standard 2-Year Warranty on all of it’s Computerized Dot Peen Marking Systems & Components.
In conclusion, Millennium Signatures has nearly 25 years experience and extensive knowledge of this technology and competing products. We successfully sell a large volume of these products throughout North and South America annually and have worked hard to build a strong product line that has proven to be exceptional quality supported by quality service and support at pricing that has often been reported back as some of the best in the industry.
We hope that you will contact our Technical Sales team by phone at (905) 639-0909 or through e-mail at email@example.com and allow us to assess your application and provide you with a proposal and the supporting technical information you require.
Versatile Bench Top Marking Solutions ideal for generic part marking applications and limited budgets.
Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc., would like to introduce our Model MS-300 and MS-300L Part Marking Systems. The Model MS-300 and the MS-300L are considered to be our entry level Dot Peen (Pin Stamping / Pin Marking) Systems. Both systems are supplied complete with a Marking Head that provides a marking area of 95mm X 75mm and a base with manual adjustable column. As with all of our Computerized Dot Peen Marking Systems they come complete with our JS-2000 Software Package which gives the ability to link your system to a Windows based PC.
The difference between these systems is that the Model MS-300L requires a PC be connected in order to operate. The Model MS-300 is nearly identical in terms of physical dimensions and capabilities, but it has a controller complete with LCD Screen built into the marking head and has a port built-in to accommodate a Mini Keyboard so that the system despite having computer link capabilities can operate independently and does not require a PC.
These systems are excellent entry level systems for budget conscious applications, where use may be periodic or a versatile system is required to handle a variety of part marking applications. Both the Model MS-300 and MS-300L are Reinforced Cog Belt Driven Systems and have Air Driven solenoids. The electronics are mounted within the head on these specific systems as opposed to within a separate controller. These systems do not have cast housings, they are all made with heavy gauge precision machined components and protected with a rugged steel casing. The Marksman line of products are not built with fancy molded plastic cowlings nor are they intended to look like sports cars, they are designed for lasting durability and precision year after year in harsh industrial environments. These systems are super fast providing marking at speeds of up to five (2mm) characters per second. They both offer Linear, Circular (ARC), Oblique-Line and Angular Marking. They are also capable of marking 2D Matrix and UID Codes, Automatic Serialization, Date Coding, Julian Calendar, Special (Custom) Coding, Day & Night (Shift) Coding. Graphics & Logo’s can also be imported from CAD (PLT) via RS-232 Interface and marked using these systems .
The Air Driven Solenoid provides powerful and consistent marking results which deliver an average marking depth of approximately 0.004″ (0.01 cm) on most materials. Potentially more on plastics and some softer metals. The system comes complete with a regulator so the pressure can be adjusted to provide optimum results on the specific material you are working with.
Our JS-2000 Software is included or available for all of our Computerized Dot Peen Systems. This software will install easily on any Windows based PC and allow you to communicate directly with your system to create layouts and control the system as an interface allowing you to back-up layouts or down load logo’s and graphics.
These systems are aggressively priced and frequently beat out competitive systems.

Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc. is pleased to introduce you to our Marksman Line of Computerized Dot Peen Marking Systems. Computerized Dot Peen Marking or “Pin Stamping” as it is often called is a computerized solution for permanently stamping identification onto plastic and metal products without the need for costly Engraved Steel Stamping Dies or extensive amounts of time and money spent on tooling and set-ups. Not only will Computerized Dot Peen Marking allow for fast easy keyboard/Scanner entry of the variable data you wish to mark, but it generates the characters, images and barcodes to the scale you require and marks them permanently into most materials to an average depth of 0.004”. The system creates characters and images at very high speed, however the system does generate the markings by stamping one dot at a time using a Tungsten Carbide Stylus and this greatly reduces the amount of stress on the parts.
The Computerized Dot Peen marking Process is very versatile. It can mark materials ranging from soft plastics to hardened metals. All of our Computerized Dot Peen Marking System models can provide Linear (Straight line) marking as well as Radial (Arc) marking. The process can accommodate marking on flat or contoured surfaces and with our Rotary Marking System we can offer full circumferential marking on Cylinders and Hex bar as well.
Marking speeds are very efficient ranging according to character size and font. As a guideline, our systems will properly indent stamp into many metals to a depth of 0.004” at a rate of five (5) characters per second.
Things to consider when looking into Computerized Dot Peen Marking Technology
We offer two different precision drive technologies: – Precision Reinforced Cog Belt Driven Design – Ultra High Precision Ball Screw Driven Design (Ideal for 2D Matrix & UID Code Applications)
We offer two (2) different solenoid styles: – Air Driven Solenoid – Electric Driven Solenoid (Available on some models)
We offer systems in three (3) different configurations: – Adjustable Bench Top Marking – Hand-Held (Pistol Grip) Portable Marking – Universal Mount (Integrator Series) Marking Heads for adaptation to existing automation.
Our systems can except variable data to be marked via – Keyboard Entry – Linear/2D Barcode Scanner – RS-232 Serial Interface
Our Systems are fully supported in the field by trained technicians or your product can be sent back to our Service Center in Burlington, Ontario for repair.
Temporary Loaner Program (SWAP) is also in place for most models to prevent downtime during repair should it become necessary.
Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc., has experience working with Computerized Dot Peen Marking Equipment since the technology was first introduced to the marketplace back in 1987. This technology has become more efficient and more cost effective over the years and Millennium Signatures “Marksman” product has an excellent track record and is very well proven product at this point. The cost-of ownership on the Marksman Product is incredible, given that they do not really have any consumables other than the periodic re-sharpening and eventual replacement of the Tungsten Carbide Marking tip. These systems have been repeatedly known to give 5 or 6 years of initial service on a daily basis without incurring any additional expense beyond the initial investment.
There are several models available and basic bench top systems can be purchased starting for as little as $4,000.00 US Dollars.
