Dot Peen and Scribing Machines

To meet the coding and identification needs of industrial parts, Technifor invented the dot peen marking technique in 1981.  Now adopted worldwide by manufacturers, this permanent marking technology for traceability is trusted because of its reliability.

Our brand is constantly developing new dot-peen markers and solutions dedicated to the progress of industrial marking and offers 2 mechanical engraving technologies:

  • Dot peen marking: allows industrial engraving of text, numbers, logos, date codes and Datamatrix codes point by point, using high speed.
  • Scribing marking: uses a continuous line for a powerful industrial marking, which does not create chips or noise.

  • What is the difference between dot peen and scribing?
    Dot peen marking is fast, direct and permanent Scribing marking is deep and clean

     Technifor currently offers 2 types of dot peen marking machines: electromagnetic or pneumatic. For industrial engravings that require speed, use a pneumatic dot pin marking machine. If you need more precision, use the electromagnetic dot peen marker.


     Dot peen allows the same marking to be carried out on uneven surfaces without losing the high contrast quality. Learn more about our 3D stylus, a Technifor innovation.

     Often preferred use on production lines for VIN marking on car chassis, scribing does not chip and offers a silent solution. Mark alphanumeric characters and a Datamatrix code in a single operation!


     The stylus penetrates into the material and then, moved from X to Y marks, it scribes the surface of the part and performs the marking. High speed and low maintenance cost, two key elements of industrial scribing machines.
