Plastic Identification

The IMPACT benchtop dot-peen marking station 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 machine 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 marker.

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.

IMPACT: modern machine, historical robustness

Technifor started to manufacture benchtop dot peen machines 40 years ago

 

Our historical brand Technifor invented dot peen, a new marking technology, only four years after being founded in 1985. The CN machine range was quickly launched following the dot peen invention. These standalone marking machine allowed busy workshops and part manufacturers to easily identify all kinds of small to medium-sized industrial items.

In 2008 Technifor released the XF500 standalone marking machine which inherited from the robust mechanics of the dot-peen “CN” range.

Designed for worshops, this stand-alone marking solution has enabled parts manufacturers to easily identify all kinds of small and medium-sized industrial parts.

At the same time, Propen, a distribution brand of the Gravotech Group, developed the worldwide famous P5000 standalone engraver. When Technifor and Propen joined forces in 2018, the XF500 and P5000 evolved into the IMPACT standalone engraver, a modern, industrial, and robust marking machine, field-proven for the industry.
