AIMS Equipment Service

Next Service Due Date Label

AIMS lab animal tattoo systems are sold with our standard or ultra-light tattoo machine. Each machine (hand-held unit) is manufactured, calibrated, and certified to optimal operating standards for animal tattooing. The tattooing process places the front/back springs and capacitor under extreme stress. Over time, the performance of these components can change, decreasing the effectiveness (power produced) of these machines for animal tattooing.

A malfunctioning tattoo machine will lead to technician frustration when tattooing along with poor performing tattoos. This is observed by light tattoos, tattoo that fade, slower tattooing speeds, along with longer tattooing times (increased personnel working times). Well maintained tattoo machines are easier for technicians to use and are critical for producing dark permanent identification tattoos. AIMS recommends that each tattoo machine be serviced annually.
