Pryor Marking Technology

Pryor Marking Technology, is a world leader in the manufacture and design of marking, identification and traceability solutions. Not only is Pryor a world leader in cutting-edge technology, but Pryor's state-of-the-art solutions are also integral to a wide range of markets. Founded in Sheffield in 1849, the company’s success is built upon providing innovative solutions for all manufacturing industries, with extensive expertise in aerospace and automotive standards.

For over 160 years Pryor Marking Technology has been providing UK manufacturing with the technology to reliably identify its products. In that time, Pryor has gone from making hand-cut punches depicting cutler's trademarks to robotic production line systems for imprinting machine-readable coded data on the most highly specified aerospace turbine blades. The company has endured by constantly innovating, pushing its own boundaries and, throughout it's history, looking for the next development to supersede its current technology. Pryor serves a global customer base, supported by a network of distributors and subsidiaries in over 60 countries.

The company provides a complete portfolio of technologies for permanent marking of components, assemblies and products ranging from a hand punch through to turnkey, bespoke designed systems using laser, scribing or punching machines.

With the advent of barcodes and data-driven manufacturing, Pryor acquired expertise in vision technology and developed the capability to read barcodes and log data for full traceability. Pryor's own vision systems and software solutions enable the automatic, precise location of marking on a component and reduce quality escapes in manufacture by verifying and tracing marks throughout the lifecycle.

Pryor has extensive experience of robotic marking systems to deal with the most challenging production requirements and was awarded The Manufacturer Award for Innovation and Design, recognising ground breaking work in automotive production.

The combination of Pryor's breadth and length of marking experience, engineering excellence, and vision has created a customer-centric organisation renowned for quality and durability.

The business has invested heavily in its design capabilities and now has a specialist unit delivering made-to-order, bespoke systems. This approach places a large emphasis on constant innovation, requiring project teams to work closely with customers to deliver custom solutions on an order-by-order basis.
