Laser marking on steel valves
History of the company
Founded by Robert Zell in Detroit Michigan in 1946, BrassCraft Manufacturing Company, a MASCO owned company, is one of the world’s leading designers, manufacturers and distributors of high-quality and innovated plumbing products for the new construction and repair and remodel markets.
BrassCraft was using Continuous Ink Coders (CIJ) for 8 years until, due to a requirement from Home Depot in Mexico, requiring all suppliers to supply items with permanent markings, BrassCraft had to look for an alternative to his current marking system.
They wanted to find a laser providing them:
• a permanent mark
• a great print quality
• a turnkey solution,
• minimal maintenance
• ease of use
To do this, they considered different coding and marking systems on the market, Macsa id lasers among them.
