What is dot peen marking?
Dot peen marking is a marking method which provides fast, accurate, permanent, closely spaced small dots (which form characters) whilst exerting minimal force on the surface the dot is penetrating (marking).
The distance of the dot peen head from the material determines how deep the dot is marked into the surface.
Dot Peen marking machines allow customers to physically mark serial numbers, part numbers, VIN numbers, words, sentences and in some cases logos, onto spare parts, asset numbering tags, tooling, gears, tubes, brackets and more.
Industries that use this system of marking are: automotive and petroleum; aeronautics and space; manufacturing and electrical. In particular the automotive industry uses dot peen marking for VIN numbers or spare parts, relay rods and connecting rods, pump bodies, fastening pieces and machine tools and tooling.
Dot peen machines come in three options: planar, rotary or portable.
- planar models are more suited to flat surfaces where characters, numbers and logos are required
- rotary models suit flat and rotary surfaces eg. stepper motors
- portable models are great for large sized unmovable items
A dot peen machine is an ideal asset to your workshop.
