Dot peen marking technology is a type of direct part marking that uses a pneumatically or electrically driven stylus to create permanent marks on a wide range of materials. The stylus moves up and down, striking the surface of the material with a series of closely spaced dots, leaving an indelible mark.
Dot peen marking is often used in industrial and manufacturing settings to mark parts and products with identifying information, such as serial numbers, barcodes, logos, and other alphanumeric codes. It is also used for marking text, graphics, and symbols onto metal, plastic, and other materials.
Dot peen marking offers several advantages over other marking methods. It is fast, accurate, and produces high-quality, durable marks that are resistant to wear, fading, and corrosion. It is also versatile, allowing for the marking of flat, curved, and irregular surfaces.
Dot peen marking technology is available in a variety of formats, including handheld, benchtop, and fully automated systems. Some dot peen marking machines can even be integrated into production lines for continuous marking of parts as they move through the manufacturing process.
