What is Dot Peen Marking?
Dot peen marking technology allows manufacturers to automate the direct part marking process, ensuring 100% reliable part traceability.
- Eliminate mis-marked products
- Stamp on rough or uneven surfaces
- Use 2D Data Matrix codes for greater product traceability
- Use fixturing for easy and consistent marking
- Integrate with host systems, retrieve data from bar code scanners, spreadsheets, or databases
Why Choose Dot Peen Marking?
By upgrading to dot peen marking, manufacturers can increase production throughput and reallocate valuable labor resources. They also enjoy downstream benefits from highly legible and accurate product marks, eliminating the need for rework, scrap, or testing due to improper product identification. Compare dot peen marking to other methods of permanent part marking:

How Dot Peen Systems Work
Dot peen marking machines use a pneumatically driven marking pin to stamp (or peen) a series of very small, closely spaced dots to form straight or curved lines. Also called pin marking technology, the dot peen marking method provides fast, accurate marks while exerting minimal force on the part surface. Text, logos, and 2D Data Matrix codes can be marked in any size or orientation.
