VeriSmart™ Verifier and Mark2Verify™ software
  • The latest Pryor VeriSmart camera features a 5 mega-pixel imager ensuring the system can verify the widest range of different size codes without the need to change lenses.
  • The camera unit is specifically designed to be mounted on to the marking machine. Its robust construction, unique shrouding and software controlled DOAL (Diffused on axis lighting) ensure long term, consistent high quality images are maintained during in-process verification.
  • The Mark2Verify™ software provides a very simple data entry and verification result user interface, with many advanced features available to the system administrator.
  • Simple traffic light feedback to the operator, reporting green for a compliant mark, amber for compliant but attention required and red for non-compliance either from mark quality or data formatting within the DataMatrix code.
  • Machine condition feedback providing users and administrators with Fault, Cause and Solutions if amber or red lights are shown during verification.
  • Powerful data entry functions ranging from simple prompted keyboard entry, barcode only entry, unique serial number generation, text file capture from LAN/ERP systems, direct SQL database queries and vbscripting for customised data entry.
  • Advanced Database functions allow all marked data to be logged with all verification results and images. This provides duplicate checking functions to ensure serial numbers are never duplicated and allows verification reports to be generated. These reports can be despatched with the part to prove successful mark verification.
  • Simple to configure user/password access, allowing administrators lock out all configuration screens and provide individual users with various levels of privileges.
  • Various communication ports and I/O
  • Wide Range of Options

The Marktronic 3000 ‘C’ (Column mounted) series machines have been designed to offer the flexibility and benefits of dot marking technology in a robust, simple to use package. The ‘V’ (VeriSmart integrated Verification camera) option allows the machine to mark DataMatrix codes onto parts and instantly verify the quality and data formatting within the code without having to move the part. Verifying ‘in-process’ saves time, eliminates mark quality escapes and ensures the marking system is always producing acceptable quality DataMatrix codes eliminating the risk of reject batches.

The build quality and mark precision are second to none. The machines rigid construction and high quality ball screw mechanism ensures it can deal with the most demanding DataMatrix applications as well as the most challenging high speed continuous production applications.


The 3000 C150-150ZAV and C300-150ZAV consist of three building blocks, marking head/camera, base & column and the controller/PC.

The Marking Head is a large 300 x 150 mm or 150 x 150mm size with VeriSmart camera mounted next to the marking stylus. For components requiring a deeper mark there are 9 levels of force to choose from. The marking styli are available in a range of lengths to suit different applications.

The Base and Column features a powered digital Z axis with autosense system. The machine self adjusts its distance to the surface to be marked in a fully automatic sequence optimizing the consistency of marking depth. After marking, the machine moves back allowing a better clearance for the operator. ZA models are highly recommended for Data Matrix marking.


The 3000 Controller / PC is a separate unit to ensure it is protected from the mechanical shock loading of the marking operation. The controller receives commands from the PC software during a marking cycle. Once complete the programmed co-ordinates for the camera are sent to the controller which then positions the camera above the DataMatrix code(s), the VeriSmart camera then controls the lighting and verifies the mark, all part programming is done on the PC.

The machine comes with a comprehensive parts and labour warranty, with additional optional maintenance contracts tailored to individual customer requirements.

Other machines in this range feature a variety of marking areas to ensure the marking head suits exactly the requirements of the application.

  • Marktronic 3000 C150-150ZAV Marking window: 150 mm x 150 mm
  • Marktronic 3000 C300-150ZAV Marking window: 300 mm x 150 mm

If larger marking areas are required for your application then consider the 3000 GantryMark™ range of machines.
