Plastic Identification

The IMPACT benchtop dot-peen marking system range makes it possible to perform precise and high-quality marking on many materials:

  • Metal part marking (steel and painted steel, aluminium, brass, iron, steel, raw and anodised aluminium)
     
  • Plastics (ABS, PA, PP).

It is the ideal marking tool for industrial direct part marking.

Impact Z axis ideal for small and large parts

From single part markings to small batches, the IMPACT benchtop dot-peen marking system is loved for its size and versatility.

From the traceability of the smallest components to the identification of the heaviest and most voluminous parts, everything is possible thanks to the 300mm clearance and the open structure of the IMPACT industrial equipment.

Used in automotive, aerospace, medical, and by heavy and light industries, the IMPACT has become the favourite industrial equipment.

The marking head is raised or lowered using control buttons

We took all of our experience working within industrial traceability and created the IMPACT marking station to respond to your specific needs, when both the marking requirements and the parts to be marked are constantly changing.

The IMPACT was created to be the all-in-one, ready to go solution, with usability at the forefront and ready to start marking immediately.

This dot-peen industrial equipment can mark 15+ materials
