Specialists in traceability marking

New from NCB Marking Equipment, the Impact Dot Peen Marking machine achieves a permanent traceability mark with speed and precision. The Impact Dot Peen Marking machine is a bench top machine that will fit easily into most workspaces. The machine marks both metals and plastics up to 300mm (12”) in height. NCB’s dot peen marking machines are available in two power source options: pneumatic or electromagnetic.


Handheld dot peen marking machine


Pneumatic power source: offers high speed and high marking frequency.

Electromagnetic power source: offers a high level of precision and consistency. The next generation of automated traceability processes - DataMatrix Code marking. The electromagnet machine detects the surface of the workpiece and will automatically adjust the height of the Z-axis without the need for operator intervention. Even the most complex shaped pieces can be easily marked.

Dot Peen Marking Technology: Additional Product Features

Touch&Mark Technology - The onboard control software is located in the marking head and the machine comes with an easy-to-use touchscreen, these technologies combined means that the machine can perform the highest level of accurate marking.

Dynamic Dot Control - Automatically adjust the density of the dot to the desired level using the new automatic controls.

T08 Software - The machine comes equipped with integrated T08 software. Operators of the machine will be able to create and edit marking files, store files, check for duplicates, preview marking jobs and adjust settings without the use of a computer. The key features of the software are:

  • Serialisation
  • Automatic timestamping
  • Counters
  • Duplication control
  • Marking preview
  • Marking history



The Impact dot peen marking machine will achieve a clear and precise mark across a broad spectrum of materials including:

  • Plastics - ABS, PA, PP etc
  • Metals - steel, painted steel, aluminium, brass, iron, raw and anodised aluminium etc.

NCB Marking Equipment has a long and established history in providing a range of high-quality, precise dot marking machines for a range of organisations.
