Specialists in traceability marking

The ‘Impact’ dot peen marking machine from NCB Marking Equipment is a benchtop solution to achieving a permanent traceability mark with speed and precision. This etching or indent marking machine will fit easily into most workspaces and will indent both metals and plastics up to 300mm (12”) in height. NCB Marking Equipment supplies Impact dot peen marking machines in two power sources: pneumatic or electromagnetc.


The Impact dot peen marking machine: Touch & Mark Technology 

The impact dot peen marking machine features onboard control software located in the marking head. The machine also comes with an easy to use touchscreen. These technologies combined mean that the machine operates at the highest level of accurate marking

The Impact dot peen marking machine: Dynamic Dot Control 

The Impact dot marking machines come with Dynamic Dot Control. This new feature enables automatic adjustment of dot density according to the desired size and depth. The Impact dot peen marking machines will always achieve a very high-quality mark no matter what the dot depth, application or character height.

The Impact dot peen machine: On-board T08 Software 

All Impact dot peen marking machines from NCB Marking Equipment come complete with the On-Board T08 Software. The operator can simply create and edit files, store files, merge excel files, check for duplicates, preview marking jobs and adjust settings without the use of a computer.

The Impact dot peen marking machine: 2 Power Sources 

The pneumatic Impact marking machine is both high-speed and high marking frequency for industrial manufacturers.

The electromagnetic Impact marking machine offers a higher level of precision and consistency.  The electromagnetic machine for example is ideal for DataMatrix codes.

The electromagnetic and pneumatic Impact marking machines benefit from the add on option of a motorised Z-axis and I-Sense function.

  • This function will automatically detect the surface of the component and adjust the height of the Z-axis.
  • The machine will achieve multi-level marking with no operator intervention
  • The machine will be able to mark objects that have a complex shape
  • The machines can also be set to manual mode when required and has the additional benefit of ‘turbo mode’ for rapid marking

The Impact dot peen marking machine: Applications

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 et
  • Wood
