How Dot Peen Marking Works:

A dot peen marking is generated by a pneumatically or electro-pneumatically driven carbide marking pin. The marking pin is moved in an x- and y-direction, striking the material by an up-and-down movement.

How Can Dot Peen Be Used?

Almost any material can be marked, from plastic to aluminum to hardened steel. What you mark on the material is up to you. Here are six options for permanent traceability that can be used in isolation or in combination:

  1. Letters, Numbers, Symbols: The simplest option to mark part numbers, VIN numbers, and more.

  2. Logos: Mark your company logo, CE designation, etc.

  3. 2D Data Matrix Codes: An optimal solution to mark a lot of information in a small area protected by a readable code.

  4. Serialization: Numbers automatically incremented via programmable software.

  5. Date/Time Codes: Mark the date and/or time in various numerical formats.

  6. Barcode Scanning: Scan a barcode and then mark the corresponding characters.
