Plate Marker

Bill,

Are you going to be able to get a plate marker hooked up to the 2x2 and a video or am I going to be the guinea pig lol. Thanks Bill you are great at responding and I want to personally thank you for starting this forum dedicated to Torchmate.

I don't know Gord. You may well be the guinea pig. I don't think that there is any question that it will work. We have two different versions of the plate marker. A long one for our Torchmate 3's and XS2's. Then a short one for the Torchmate 2. I don't even know which will fit on this yet. It is going to have to wait for a bit though.

Thanks for the kind words. I do think that this forum is going to help everyone through the learning curve. A lot of guys on this board work through the night and on weekends. We are only open weekdays, so this should allow information to flow 24/7/365. I am happy to do it!

Bill

When will you know which one will work because I was planning on having this ship with my table when you give me the weeks heads up which should be coming soon. I am really excited for this and hope you can look into this for me.

From seeing Dallas' videos and having a couple of his pieces sitting next to my desk here, it is definitely something I'd like down the road. The $2K price tag is a sticking point, though. Have to get the 2x2 table to earn me some money before I can invest more!

Bill,

You talk of a inline lubricator for the plate marker attachment do you have one that you can recommend or any to stay away from. Just trying to get a few things set up before my table comes in soon.

I don't recall talk of an inline lubricator. Water separators are all we recommend I think, unless you heard different from one of the tech guys.

Regulator: 30 PSI for pneumatic actuator (recommended setting 15-20psi)

Pen: BPM: 0-13500
Working Pressure: 90PSI (6.2 BAR)
dBA (with no plate contact) 82+/-2 dBA
dBA (with plate contact) ~ 100-120 dBA
Lubrication: In line lubricator is recommended (make sure to ONLY lubricate the plate marker and no other equipment)

You are right. Give tech a call on Monday to ask them about it. I can tell you that we don't use one in the shop even though it "is recommended" as far as I know.

Bill I'm in the field all day and won't have time to call tech regarding the inline lubricator the website talks about for the the plate marker. Any way you could look into this and let me know.

Gord,

We run all of our current setups without any in line lubrication. Because there is a single air feed to the Plate Marker that goes to both the Pen and the Ram, we don't need to lubricate the ram itself. The Plate Marker works fine without it, only requiring a cleaning/lubrication after many many hours of use.

I've run the hell out of mine with no lubrication either. I would be more concerned with the oil flowing through the solenoids than the marker running with no lube. I also think it would be a pain to try to run any type of inline lube system post solenoid.
