Merlin® is proprietary, intuitive, and powerful software that runs the entire suite of Telesis products.
Across laser, dot peen, and scribe marking systems, Merlin® is a long-trusted customer favorite tool.
From PC-based system applications, to fixed-button dot peen controllers, touchscreen controllers, and dual-head lasers, Merlin® makes marks happen.
MAGICALLY EASY OPERATOR INTERFACE
Pattern design is quick and simple with the Merlin user interface. Design and execute machine-readable and human-readable marks. The Pattern Wizard makes pattern setup truly magical, even for a novice. Immediately adjust the size, location, and orientation of your pattern designs.
MADE AND MAINTAINED IN-HOUSE
A truly proprietary and revolutionary software package, Telesis engineers built Merlin from the ground up. While most laser and dot peen manufacturers re-sell off-the-shelf software, Telesis constantly maintains and improves Merlin. This ensures customers receive the best capabilities, while also allowing features to be customized.
Merlin works well with others. Use the easy setup tool, or work with our in-house software team to introduce Merlin into your systems.
CAPABILITIES FOR EVERY INDUSTRY
Industry specific tools included such as UDI, UID & GSI formats, banding for close tolerance medical instruments, serialization tracking for gun manufacturing and VIN marks for the highly regulated automobile industry.
TOTAL CONTROL FROM ONE PLATFORM
Because Merlin is available with most Telesis products, users can utilize the software on their laser AND dot peen equipment. Reduce employee training time, prevent operator errors, and create more efficient processes with Merlin on every platform.
AT ANY ANGLE
Use familiar drop-and-drag method to design patterns that include linear text, arc text, rectangles, circles, ellipses and lines.
Merlin includes an ultra-modern connectivity tool to easily set up communication with various databases while handling SQL Query to extract data directly to your pattern.
Our robust, long-lasting, and time-tested products are vigorously tested. If an issue does arise, remote troubleshooting, on-site support, and in-house service will quickly solve the problem.
Although the Merlin platform is intuitive, our team can conduct virtual operator training or in-person sessions so your operators and team can get up and running quickly.
Free software updates ensure you’re always running at peak performance. Additionally, Telesis does not charge for additional seat/user licenses, providing free and unrestricted access to the tool.
MORE THAN A MARK
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. Most laser software packages can mark true type fonts, bar codes and graphics, but Merlin allows the operator to manipulate and edit DXF Files in the laser software.
Merlin creates an additional layer of safety for your operations. With Telesis’ Merlin, production specialists can breath easy. Merlin prevents marks from being executed if certain parameters are not meant, while its intuitive structure prevents errors.
Merlin integrates seamlessly with all Telesis vision
systems. When utilized with iZONIT, Telesis’ premium,
high definition camera package, Merlin performs a
digital analysis of the item to be marked. In turn, the
operator can virtually and accurately place the mark in
a precise location. After the mark is made, iZONIT and
Merlin can verify the data contained within the mark,
grade a 2D matrix code, and dictate the XY location of a
When using Merlin with Teleview, users will receive
many of the same benefits as iZONIT, but in a small
footprint. This embedded inspection and code reading
program harnesses the power of Merlin to analyze and
grade data matrix codes and features a live viewing
window with a laser focus indicator.
ShapesFinder eliminates the need for fixtures that hold
the part and has the ability to identify shapes. After
the Circle Tool finds a radius, the operator can place
arc or linear text in any location. The Edge Tool can be
used when the part is larger than the marking area. The
Rectangle Tool looks for a rectangle in any orientation
and the Line Tool will locate any specified length of line
in any orientation.
Intelligent PIXEL Tracker™
An advanced tool for marking, tracking, and error
prevention, Intelligent PIXEL Tracker, prevents costly
errors and eliminates product loss in human and
automated processes. For example, when integrated
with Merlin, the tool will notify the operator if a part
is not properly placed properly or if the wrong part
is present. It does not allow marking operations to
proceed if it detects missing or dislodged parts in an
array, and it will halt serialization processes if it detects
serial number exists.
