The MPX-95 is a photo impact printer that uses a hard tipped stylus to strike the material over and over again to create your design. Users can add anything from text to images without creating debris, odor, or much noise. The unit itself is compact and portable, fully enclosed, plugs into a standard outlet, and requires no ventilation, making it perfect for things like shops and trade shows. It’s low entry price and daily maintenance free operation make it a cost effective machine that’s easy and safe to use with very little clean-up.
The MPX is very versatile and can be used for things like gift customization and part marking. The hard tipped stylus is quick and precise with the ability to mark platinum, titanium, gold, silver, nickel, brass, copper, stainless steel, steel, iron, aluminum, acrylic and more up to 200HV without burning, removing material, or leaving residue. The built in laser pointer and automatic surface detection make it easy to locate the part origin at the press of a button. The removable base plate allows you to mark larger items that would normally be too big to fit. The MPX-95 comes with it’s own software to run the machine.
One common use for the MPX-95 include adding things like text, artwork, and detailed photo imprints onto items like gifts, souvenirs, plaques, and jewellery to add value and personalization.
