Software Programs for Pin Marking Controller

  • COUTHedit

    COUTHedit is the graphic tool for creating and editing marking files for the Smartbox control unit. Now you can easily generate marking files and send directly from the PC to the control unit.

  • COUTHvector

    This pin marking software allows the user to generate logo and graphic files for dot peen marking units. Simply import a CAD file, bmp, or jpg image and trace the graphic to convert the image into a format supported by the Smartbox controller.

  • Custom GUI

    Create custom programs to help simplify and/or automate the use of the dot peen marking systems. Typical applications for this are the creation of a custom Graphical User Interface (GUI) and data communications with programs like SAP or plant floor control software and PLCs.
