Couth Mc 2000 Manual: How to Use the Industrial Marking System
Couth Mc 2000 is a versatile and reliable industrial marking system that can mark different types of materials and parts with speed, quality and efficiency. It uses dot peen, scribe or laser technology to create permanent and traceable marks on metal, plastic, wood and more. In this article, we will explain how to use the Couth Mc 2000 manual to operate the system and perform various marking tasks.
Components of the Couth Mc 2000 System
The Couth Mc 2000 system consists of three main components: the controller, the marking head and the cable. The controller is the brain of the system that allows you to edit, preview and execute the marking programs. The marking head is the device that performs the actual marking on the surface of the part. The cable connects the controller and the marking head and transmits the signals and power.
The controller has a 320x240 pixels grey-scale LCD display that shows the menus, parameters and graphics of the marking programs. It also has a keypad with function keys, arrow keys and numeric keys that allow you to navigate the screens and enter data. The back panel of the controller has various ports for connecting the power supply, the marking head, the USB drive, the RS232 port and other optional devices.
The marking head has a stylus that moves in X and Y directions to create marks on the part. Depending on the technology used, the stylus can be either a dot peen or a scribe tip that impacts or scratches the surface, or a laser beam that burns or melts the material. The marking head also has a sensor that detects the distance between the stylus and the part and adjusts it automatically.
The cable is a shielded wire that connects the controller and the marking head. It has two connectors at each end that plug into the corresponding ports on both devices. The cable carries both data and power signals between them.
