Movable cable markers
Marking material for automated processing

The E-WM... marking material is designed for processing with the THERMOMARK E.WIRE applicator. The E.WIRE processes the continuous material into radially and axially movable markers that can be printed on three sides. The welded seam ensures that the marker is captive.

These are the main features

  • One material for all diameter ranges
  • Good visibility due to three-sided printing and mobility
  • Captive marking thanks to the welded seam
  • Different widths for various installation and marking scenarios
  • For cylindrical exposed conductive parts, single lines, cables, and cable bundles
