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.

When extremely durable and tamper-proof marking is required, and equipment should be able to withstand strong mechanical strain over years, needle embossers are many people’s first choice.

Our own needle embosser brand, PinMark™, has represented reliability and the highest precision for many years. Needle embossers are primarily used in rough industrial environments in the automotive and steel industry, by tool manufacturers and in mechanical engineering. This is why the robust construction and the innovative detail solutions prevailed in the development of the PinMark™ series.

What materials are marked with needle embossers?

Solid materials such as:

  • Metal (aluminium, stainless steel)
  • Cast iron
  • Graphite
  • PVC
  • etc.

We offer the right solution for your demands, regardless of whether you require installation devices for integration into your production line, benchtop devices, flexible handheld devices or combinations of handheld and benchtop devices.
