In one method (Fig.1) of marking elements, such as modules, the marking head pad is supported on a solid block, which requires a precise adjustment of travel (D) to achieve correct stamping pressure without damaging the module or smearing the ink. The time required for this critical adjustment results in longer set-up time impacting tool throughput and yield.
