  • Carbon Migration

    Carbon migration occurs during the heating of metal or metal alloys, causing the metal to chemically bond with traces of carbon molecules at or near the part’s surface, creating a dark – sometimes even black – permanent mark.

  • Laser Welding

    Laser welding utilizes a laser beam as a concentrated heat source to join multiple pieces together. Delivering a focused heat source, laser welding creates a strong seam at a high speed.

    Dot Peen

  • Low-Stress Pin Marking

    In order to maintain a part’s strength and durability, Dot Peen machines can add low-stress marking that avoids compromising a part’s strength.

  • Scribing

    Scribers are a pneumatic system that presses down and drags across the part surface.

  • Vibra Peen

    Vibra Peen™ is a method of pin marking where the stylus cycles up and down at a fixed rate of 80-100 cycles per second, creating a mark that has no specific dot pattern.
