RICHMOND, VA (April 7, 2017) — Weidmuller is pleased to announce that they received a Product of the Year award from Plant Engineering magazine for their MultiMark thermal transfer printer marking system. The Plant Engineering Product of the Year competition recognizes new and innovative solutions in product development. This year’s program included 15 product categories with 50 winners determined by votes from the magazine readers. Weidmuller received a Bronze award in the Automation & Controls category.
The MultiMark all-in-one printer marking system incorporates a new range of marking solutions that would normally require several different printing devices. The MultiMark printer consists of the THM MultiMark thermal transfer printer and an innovative line of reel formatted markers to fit onto modular terminal blocks, wire and cable, and equipment.

Marking System wins award.
Used with Weidmuller’s M-Print® PRO printing software, the THM MultiMark Printer gives the user the capability to produce virtually any type of alpha-numeric and symbol identification.
The THM MultiMark Printer prints markers and labels as well as continuous materials such as textile/polyester adhesive labels, heat-shrink wire/cable sleeves and PLC-field panel adapter labels. To print endless heat-shrink and adhesive labels, there is a printer option for adding an automated cutting and perforation tool. It produces markers that are resistant to internal/external (industrial) influences with a print resolution of 300 dpi, for easy-to-read identification, and is capable of printing 250 markers per minute.
The MultiMark marker system includes 150 new marking products, which can be used to cover virtually all identification requirements in a control cabinet or equipment build setting. Weidmuller’s renowned Dekafix and WS modular terminal block markers, made with new composite material and designed as continuous strips, offer simple and efficient markers that are highly resistant to both vibration and shock.
