What Is Indent Marking?

Indent marking is the process of adding a permanent mark to a material, especially metal. There are several methods that this can be achieved, through dot peen marking, etch marking and indent marking. The method that you choose for your application depends on the types of material your application is made from, as force from the marker can be destructive if used on a weaker material. Some examples of items that can be marked in this way include small parts, round shafts, bushings and completely assembled parts, just to name a few. If you would like more information on the types of marking machine you should use, don’t hesitate to contact us and we can help choose the right one for your application.

Dot Peen Marking

Dot peen marking is another word for indent marking and involves an electromechanically controlled engraving machine being passed across a surface at speed, which creates small dots on the metal. When joined together, these dots form the permanent engraving. Similarly to etching, this method of marking is ideal for traceability, with the use of serial numbers, logos or dates.
