Dot peen marking machines uses accurate dot impressions to mark numbers, texts, imprint, two-dimensional data matrix barcodes, and many more on different types of products. These marking machines are widely applicable today, whether for uncomplicated inscriptions or complicated ones in traceability and branding. However, there are different types of dot peen machines.
Traditional dot peen marking machines are a variation of dot peen marking machines and are an excellent marking option for marking several materials. However, several factors can hinder their use. For example, the item’s weight, size, or positioning can make using a standard bench top marking station unsuitable. To resolve such things, you need a portable dot peen machine. This article gives you a quick guide on everything you need to know about a portable dot peen machine and applying it to your project.
What Is a Portable Dot Peen Machine?
Portable dot peen marking machines are ideal for marking large materials that are not easy to move. These hand-held machines have lightweight, uncomplicated, and yet durable. They can engrave many materials ranging from hard plastics to metals.
They create long-lasting marks on metal surfaces using a stylus made from durable materials such as carbide or tungsten alloy. The machines are majorly software controlled, and the stylus moves in response to a program inputted into the control system. Therefore, it is possible to mark logos, texts, and symbols on the material surface without encountering many problems.
· Main features of portable dot peen machines
- They have two separate bodies.
- They are easy to carry around
- They are controlled by a touch screen software or a windows OS
- This machine has a great editing purpose and can easily recognize various numbers and texts.
Benefits of Portable Dot Peen Machines?
Portable dot peen machines are the best option when dealing with large objects or marking surfaces not easy to reach. However, there are other benefits of using portable dot peen machines.
Portable dot peen machine does not lose their accuracy and precision. These machines are well known for producing accurate marks in a short time. They can make marks at a rate of up to 40mm in a second.
These machines are inexpensive, and you make great use of your investment. For example, the Handheld Electric dot peen marker HS-PE series ranges from $1950 to $3000.
· Fewer and Less Expensive Consumables
Unlike other marking machines such as laser marking machines and inkjet markers, portable dot peen machines don’t need many expensive consumables. Also, the consumables used for a portable dot peen marking machine are less expensive. The stylus is the only part you need to replace, and this occurs after making thousands of indents.
· Range of Application
You can engrave/mark different types and numbers of materials and surfaces using a portable dot peen. These adaptable machines can engrave metals as hard as 50 HRC and rough, flat, and/or curved surfaces.
· High efficiency
Our dot peen marking machines, in general, do an excellent job of precisely engraving any design you want on materials, including metallic parts. The portable dot peen machines are no exception. Due to the range of applications, the type of surface they can mark, etc., they become highly efficient.
Portable dot peen machines can create complex logos and symbols, including 2-dimensional matrix codes depending on their software imbibed. For example, the Handheld HS-PE series have integrated software that makes them ideal for such use.
· Ergonomic and lightweight
These are the most important attributes of portable dot peen machines. They are portable. Therefore, they are relatively easy to use as it is easy to position them on large or static surfaces for safe and precise marking.
Industrial Applications of Portable Dot Peen Machine
Portable dot peen machines can create permanent logos on several metals and some plastics. They are used in different companies to engrave texts, numbers, symbols, 2-dimensional data matrices, etc. Below are a few industrial applications of the machines.
· Automotive Industry Part Marking
Automotive parts come in several sizes, and portable dot peen machines might not be the allrounder. They are the better option in this industry as they can tackle different parts irrespective of size and shape.
Common automotive parts include engine parts, gear case, chassis, power and steering apparatus, and exhaust tools. They are also important in VIN (vehicle identification number), which helps trace and retrieve stolen cars.
· Oil And Gas Industry Part Marking
The oil and gas industry requires verification and validation of materials for quality control—the aid of the procedure in operator safety and disaster prevention for humans and the environment. Portable dot peen machines are ideal because the oil and gas industry deals with large parts. These include pipes, tubing, and casings.
· Aerospace Industry Part Marking
Portable dot peen machine aid in the identification and traceability of parts. They are applicable in marking gear, brake, turbine components, frame structure, fuel, hydraulics, and control systems.
Most parts used in the above industries are large, have different shapes, and are immovable. A portable dot peen marking machine is the most appropriate option, making marking faster and more flexible.
