In today’s consumer market, companies are known to engrave products with symbols and other codes to differentiate or track their materials. This provides a specific and unique identification marker that allows the item to be easily searched. The process of engraving these codes onto the products can be time consuming and inefficient, unless you have the correct machine for the job. There are many different ways that these codes can be engraved into materials, such as hand stamping, laser marking and chemical etching, but the most valuable and high-precision solution is dot peen marking.
What is dot peen marking?
Dot peen marking is when a marking pin is used to closely stamp together a number of very small dots in straight or curved lines. This is used to stamp codes, numbers, words, etc., onto different types of materials or products (otherwise known as direct part marking) so that that particular item is traceable.
What are the benefits of dot peen marking?
Choosing the dot peen marking method allows for flawless and precise markings on materials. This will benefit the manufacturer, as there are fewer margins for error and thus, less costs associated with scrapping materials due to imperfect markings and creating new ones.

What can a dot peen marker be used for?
