Dot Peening Equipment and Machines

Dot Peening / Pin Marking Equipment, Machines and Systems from OSTLING Systems

Tamper-proof, durable, flexible …
With dot peening (also called point of percussion technology), materials are marked using a carbide tipped tool (needle) that oscillates through compressed air application and moves in an X and Y direction during its upward and downward movements.

This results in a dense sequence of individual dots (writing) being punched into the material. Depending upon the needle frequency, a complete line can also be achieved.

Characters, digits, logos and 2D codes (Data-Matrix™) can be imprinted in the marking project as desired.

Richard Pinch, Richards Tattoo Studio

“Having dealt with Ostling Etchmark for many years as a chemical etching customer they were my natural choice when I made the decision to move over to laser marking, having checked alternative suppliers I preferred the Ostling system due to the high quality and competitive pricing.

I have always received a very high level of support from the team at Ostling who have been very happy to help me.

Phone support is always there when you need it with someone able to quickly answer your questions.

The XS30 diode pumped laser itself was selected as I wanted a very deep mark in the surface of my parts to offer my customers the quality feel they expect from my machined items, this equipment really does produce the best quality dark mark compared to other examples I have seen.”
