Gravotech dot peen marking machine marking a Datamatrix code

IMPACT, benchtop dot peen marking station.

DOT PEEN STATION
Standalone metal engraving machine, the Impact is easy to configure and master. Benefit from our 40 years’ experience in dot-peen and traceability to take your business, whatever its size and expertise, to the next level.

 

  • Touch & Mark. The large colour touchscreen and onboard control software makes training a thing of the past. The intuitive system allows you to start marking text, logos and 2D codes straight away. From serialisation, automatic timestamping, counters, duplication control, marking preview, link to a database and marking history the all in one system makes the operator’s life easy and does not require a computer or complicated setup.
  • I-Sense. With the motorised Z axis, it has never been so easy to adjust the Z axis on the Impact dot peen marking machine. The I-Sense function (Impact eZ m) detects the surface of the workpiece, automatically adjusts the height of the Z axis and starts marking with no intervention on the part of the operator. Several adjustment modes are available: automatic mode (I-Sense), programmable mode and normal mode, which allows manual adjustment by means of buttons located on the side of the machine.
  • Dynamic Dot Control. Creating a perfect result every time the IMPACT features DDC™ (Dynamic Dot Control) (Impact m and eZm) technology which enables automatic adjustment of point density according to the required size and depth of marking. Because of this your markings are high quality and with high visibility, irrespective of your application. Two adjustment modes available: automatic and manual.

Plastic Identification

The IMPACT range makes it possible to perform precise and high-quality marking on a large number range of materials from metal plate engraving (steel and painted steel, aluminium, brass, iron, steel, raw and anodised aluminium ) to plastics (ABS, PA, PP).

Impact Z axis ideal for small and large parts

From single part markings to small batches the IMPACT is loved for it 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 (11,81 in) clearance and the open structure of the machine. Used from automotive, aerospace, medical through to both heavy and light industry the Impact has become a favourite workstation.

The marking head is raised or lowered using control buttons

We took all our experience working within industrial traceability and created the IMPACT to fill that space, where both the marking requirements and the parts to marked change regularly. The impact was created to be the all in one, ready to go solution, with usability at the forefront and designed to be removed from the box and start marking immediately.
