Dot peen technology: fast, efficient marking on any material!

Dot peen marking works by electromechanically striking a carbide or diamond stylus assembly against the surface of a part to be marked.

The result is a succession of dots to create digits, text, logos, and 2D data matrix codes. Each dot is the result of a pulsed current that runs through a solenoid, punches a magnet toward the surface, and subsequently returns the stylus to its starting position, awaiting the next pulse. Because each pulse occurs in only a fraction of a second, an entire 2D data matrix code, for example, can be completed in seconds (depending on the size). Frequency can be adjusted by controlling the speed of the X and Y axes movements.

What makes SIC Marking’s dot peen technology so unique is the constant measurement of the electrical current between each
pulse. This allows for constant, precise control of the impact consistency.

column-mounted range : robust and versatile
Among the range of stand-alone marking stations, column-mounted units are perfect for use in a range of industrial working environments and will provide precise part marking on any material, including plastics and hardened steel up to 62 HRC. Their extreme accuracy, speed, and robust design make column-mounted machines a perfect solution for all types of dot peen marking.

Thanks to the wide marking window, LED lighting, and autosensing function, column-mounted machines are a reliable, multipurpose marking system. Electromagnetic marking technology works with parts of various shapes and surface conditions (flat surfaces, concave, convex, circular, raw materials, etc.) and requires only an electrical source of energy for operation.
