The reliability of the process eliminates the need for scrapping, relabeling, and reworking of products due to improper identification. Once the letters, numbers, or identifying marks are peened, it is impossible to remove them.

What is Dot Peening?

The process of dot peening uses a pneumatically driven pin that punctures or peens the surface of an item with very small closely spaced dot indentions to form letters, numbers, lines, or images. The images produced are exceptionally clear and impossible to remove by conventional means such as cleaners, solvents, or weathering.

Dot peening is a rapid marking, labor saving, process that places programmed numbers, letters, words, images, or other identifying marks on materials, equipment, or products. Once the data is input, the machine does the rest, accurately, effortlessly, and precisely using minimal force.

Types of Dot Peening Machines

There are several types of dot peening machines that can be adapted to any type of production or inventory control system. Available methods can be adjusted to fit unusual and unique conditions depending on the need and types of markings.

Dot peening machines have a touchscreen, or keypad, for entering the data to be engraved. The control panel offers the operator a variety of choices for data to be input such as words, letters, and X and Y axes. Benchtop machines come with an adjustable tool stand and base to hold the mechanism. The marking device can be raised and lowered to accommodate any size of equipment or part.

Portable machines offer the ability to mark heavy duty equipment such as presses, extrusion equipment, and cauldrons. The mechanism is set on a pistol grip handle that has a trigger to activate the marking pin. A controller, not on the portable marker, is where the data is downloaded into the handheld device. The operator places the cradle of the device on the piece to be marked and pulls the trigger.

Sophisticated dot peening machines are Integrated into production and assembly operations. The programmability, marking, and peening are included as part of product completion. These types of devices enhance and simplify the production process as well as eliminate the need for hand or manual labeling.

Benefits of Dot Peening

Aside from the obvious benefit of placing permanent identification on inventory, there are several other factors that make dot peening one of the easiest and most convenient methods for inventory control. The process is exceptionally low stress since errors in data entry can easily be corrected during the programming process.

The permanent marks that are placed on equipment and materials are minimally invasive causing limited damage or distortion. The depth and size of the pin impressions are adjustable to meet the needs of the material being marked.

The control and location of inventory is a central aspect of supply chain management and movement. The process of dot peening is a permanent and lasting method for identifying, locating, and finding vital tools and equipment.
