Dot Peen Marking

Dot peen marking, also known as percussion marking or micropercussion marking, works in a similar way to matrix printers, however rather than paper, the printing is done onto surfaces capable of deformation such as plastic, wood, aluminium, copper, stainless steel and tempered steel. Convex, concave and flat surfaces can all be indelibly marked by a series of points which penetrate the material, each one an impact from a tungsten steel stylus which vibrates when in operation. Machines can be fixed, benchtop devices for marking smaller items, or portable for use on larger, bulkier objects.
