Marking Procedures

Here you can learn more about laser marking, dot-peening, data matrix, scribe marking, drag marking, engraving and electrical signing.


A fiber laser changes the material permanently. Depending on the material, a color change or a change in the surface structure occurs. This leads to a clear contrast to the unmarked surfaces. Advantages: high precision, quality and material conservation.


With the dot-peening and the electromagnetic Dot-peening head, the marking is applied by an oscillating needle on the workpiece. Advantages of electromagnetic versus pneumatic dot-peening: No air consumption, no air leakage noise, working at a significantly reduced sound level, low impact frequency, therefore less wear on the needle.

Datamatrix (ECC200)

In the data matrix, the points are set individually at previously calculated positions. The Datamatrix is used everywhere where traceability of the workpieces has to be guaranteed.


In scratch marking, a spring-loaded needle made of solid metal is pressed against the workpiece. Advantage: high quality typeface, low noise.


In the engraving process a text is milled on the workpiece. Advantage: clean typeface, different line widths, milling depth adjustable.

Electric Marking

In electric marking, the typeface is burned into the material by means of an electrode. Application: hardened or ground workpieces.
