The system was introduced in 2003 as the world's first entry-level, bench-top UV laser wire marking system, with utilities in maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) work, avionics, and other low-volume aerospace and defense wire harness manufacturing applications.

Capris 50-100 was delivered to Boeing Defence UK based at RAF Odiham (Basingstoke, Hampshire, England) for work on Chinook helicopters. The machine will become the 47th piece of Spectrum Technologies equipment to be sold to Boeing globally.

"The Capris 50-100 was envisaged as the world's first bench-top wire marker and as a low-cost system to facilitate low-volume users to replace older hot-stamp wire markers that were found to cause serious damage when marking aerospace wires," explains Dr. Peter Dickinson, CEO of Spectrum Technologies. "Demand for these systems has been very firm this year and it is especially pleasing to reach this landmark number of 300 and that it should go to Boeing."
