MERLIN® Proprietary Software

Safe, Easy Operator Interface

Pattern design is made quick and easy with a simple interface for the creation and execution of machine- and human-readable marks. The Pattern Wizard Mode makes simple pattern design a snap even for a novice. Immediately adjust the size, location, and orientation of your mark designs.

Makes Every Mark Easier

Use Merlin to create text strings, geometric shapes, graphics, and machine-readable data matrix symbols, alphanumeric characters, symbols, special message flags (serial numbers, times, dates, and user-defined codes), or import DXF files.

Control from One Software Platform

Using Merlin II LS, Merlin Touch PS, and Merlin III, your operators can maintain their comfort level and their efficiency by using the same interface across all of the Telesis Dot Peen and Laser equipment in your facility.

Mistake-Free Patterns

Use barcode scanning to load pre-set patterns, load a picture of the part and fixture, and insert marking data in the proper field without the need for a keyboard.

Merlin II Visual Design Software

Offered as an optional accessory to a number of TMC470- based Pinstamp® Marking Systems, TELESIS’ powerful Merlin®III Visual Design Software with its state-of-the-art graphical user interface, makes marking pattern design quick and easy. “WYSIWYG” (what you see is what you get) interface provides a to-scale image of the pattern as it’s created. Just “click & drag” for immediate adjustment to field size, location or orientation. Pattern Wizard Mode makes simple pattern design a snap even for the computer novice.


Marking “tools” available include text (at any angle) – arc text, rectangles, circles, ellipses and lines. Multiple fields can be grouped and saved as a block to form a logo, or import logos via DXF CAD files. Non-printable fields clearly show the graphical representation of the part being marked. Use the convenient, “GO TO” command to avoid obstacles within the marking window.
