What is dot peen marking?

The principle of dot peen is based on the creation of depressions in the material using a vibrating tool. This creates a series of points (impacts) forming:

  • Direct marking (on the part),
  • Permanent,
  • Tamper-proof marking.

During dot peen marking, the material is pushed back and not burned, milled or more. No shavings are produced before and after the marking. This means that we have no breakage in the material, regardless of the thickness of the part being marked. Gravotech uses two dot peen technologies:

  • Pneumatic,
  • Electromagnetic.

The dot peen marking process is suitable for all applications: from deep and fast marking on raw material to very precise marking such as Data Matrix codes on small surfaces.

What are the benefits of dot peen marking?

  • Economical: very low costs and reduced cost of use (unlike punch, roller, electrochemical or bubble jet marking)

  • Multipurpose: marking on all types of shapes and surfaces thanks to the 3D stylus and on materials with hardness up to 62HRC

  • Easy to use: what you see is what you get, you can see exactly what you are marking on the screen

  • Productivity: high marking speed

  • Efficient: the marking is fast and clear

  • Independent: no need for a computer to create the files or control the machine
