Pin Marking

WHAT IS DOT PEEN PIN MARKING?

Pin marking (also referred to as stylus marking and dot peen marking) is the use of a carbide or diamond tip "pin" assembly to strike the surface of a part in a succession of dots. These permanent marks are used in manufacturing for part identification, traceability, serial codes, logos, and more.

GT SCHMIDT offers several standard column-mounted and handheld pin marking options, as well as a variety of accessories and custom options.
