Dot Peen marks can be produced by either electric or pneumatic pin marking systems. A single pin or multi-pin device creates a specific dot pattern in each character. There is a direct correlation between striking of the stylus and the X-Y movement of the head.
When programmed, Dot Peen can permanently mark information such as date/time stamping, part serialization, logos, 2D Data Matrix bar code and operator identification. Known for rugged simplicity, high-speed marking and deep engraving capabilities, Dot Peen markers deliver a mark that is permanent and includes programmable character depth and size. Dot Peen marking is also the least intrusive impact mark method.
