Dot peen marking, often referred to as pin stamping, is a direct part marking method that creates precise, low stress dot patterns. Used to mark alpha-numeric characters, logos, 2D data matrix bar codes, and more - dot peen marking systems are one of the most versatile direct part marking methods in use today. With capabilities ranging from nameplate requirements to completely integrated solutions, this direct part marking method has a variety of industrial and manufacturing applications. Our benchtop model dot peen system in particular offers a versatile marking station for small to medium size parts and can be used to mark a wide range of materials from plastics to metals up to 62 HRC. These electrically driven dot peen units require no air supply to operate making them a low-cost investment with few consumables and little maintenance.
Some of the advantages of a benchtop dot peen marking system include:
- Marking of all kinds of materials up to 62 HRC
- Electrically driven - no air supply required!
- Low cost of ownership - few consumables
- Robust and reliable - steel / cast iron column & base
- High performance - high speed
- Simple and user-friendly - powerful integrated software
- Easy programming
- Suitable for Aerospace applications (creates very little stress on the parts being marked)
What Our Customers Are Saying
Paul Suhomske, owner of Space Tech Inc., says that Durable's benchtop dot peen marking system “is very easy to use. We had it up and running in an hour and it has been maintenance free so far. We mark part numbers and the customer name on outside of the parts which are for residential and commercial natural gas applications and made from 1018 or 1215 grade steel connectors which are often times zinc plated. We have 1-6 minute cycle times to machine a part so we have plenty of time to mark each part during the machining process."
He added "the most important benefit to us is that during machine time (or DMT) the operator is not busy so there is really no labor cost to mark the parts. Since labor is our highest cost in the shop this made a big difference. Now we can mark parts quickly, with no custom marking tooling, and with high quality. Adding this dot peen marking system has made us faster, lowered our costs, and made our parts better which has helped us generate more business. We are thrilled with the dot peen marking system and with Durable Technologies. This has been a great investment for us," said Mr. Suhomske.
