Dot Peen Marking

Dot peen marking

Technifor is the inventor of dot peen marking. Today the brand boasts 30 years of experience in this area making it the leading global manufacturer of dot peen (and scribing) machines.

What is dot peen technology?

The principle of dot peen technology is based on the creation of depressions in the material using a vibrating tool.

This creates a series of points (impacts) forming:

During dot peen marking, the material is pushed back and not burned, milled or more generally transformed like it is in other marking technologies. No shavings are produced meaning that the parts weigh exactly the same both before and after marking.

This also means that dot peen creates no breakage points in the material, regardless of the thickness of the part being marked. 

The Technifor brand uses 2 dot peen technologies:

This means it it suitable for all applications: from deep and fast marking on raw material to marking very precise Datamatrix codes on small machined surfaces.
