Industrial marking solutions Marking systems: SIC Marking acquires Nill + Ritz
Effective January 1, 2023, the SIC Marking Group has acquired Nill + Ritz CNC-Technik thus expanding its range of marking systems for demanding industrial applications. With this transaction, the German SIC Marking GmbH is strengthening its presence in the south of Germany.
From simple manual signatures to automatic marking with needle marking systems and individual marking with powerful laser marking systems: The SIC Marking Group, headquartered near Lyon/France, has made a name for itself worldwide when it comes to product marking as well as data-supported product identification and tracing in the automotive, aerospace, mechanical engineering and energy markets, among others. The focus is on high-quality marking systems, which can be ordered as standard systems or customised. Around 450 employees work in the entire group
Against this background, SIC Marking describes the recent takeover of Nill + Ritz CNC-Technik in Markgröningen near Stuttgart, Germany, as a “perfect fit”. The company, which was founded in 1993, has about 25 employees who design customised marking stations and supply them to well-known customers in the industry.
Michael Endemann, Managing Director of SIC Marking in Remscheid and new Managing Director of Nill + Ritz: “With the takeover of Nill + Ritz, we are adding sophisticated customised marking solutions based on needle, scribe and laser technologies to our product range. Together we are now the largest supplier of marking technology in our product area in Germany with an order intake of 15 million euros”
In many N+R systems, components are automatically fed and positioned, and immediate inline evaluation of the marking process, e.g. by image processing, can also be integrated.
