Modular principle with a high degree of individualisation

Scribe, stylus, dot-peening, as in Data Matrix code and vibro-peening techniques permanently mark workpieces made of solid materials such as aluminum, magnesium, steel, stainless steel, plastics and cast iron. These marking techniques are used for flexible and quick markings with alphanumeric characters, logos or 2D codes. The marking process results in a permanent marking.

Scribing and stylus marking techniques offer the advantage of high flexibility for marking texts, character heights and widths, and stamping depth. Because of the low force required, solid, hollow and sensitive parts can also be marked. Mechanical tolerance compensation makes marking possible even on sloped and curved surfaces.

Due to the large variety of workshop units, mobile systems and built-in units, we are able to meet almost any marking requirements. Furthermore, BORRIES marking systems are constructed modularly and can be combined according to your needs. And if the right product is not yet available for a large portfolio, we are also very experienced in special purpose machinery.

Description of marking processes


Scribe marking

In the case of scribe marking, a diamond or carbide tipped needle is pressed into the workpiece surface and pulled through the material almost chip-free .


Stylus marking

In the case of stylus marking, a carbide tipped needleis pressed into the surface of the workpiece at a high frequency.

Punktschrift, Data-Matrix-Code und Vibropeening

Dot-peen marking, Data Matrix code and vibro-peening

In the case of dot-peen marking, as in Data Matrix and vibro-peening, a carbide tipped needle is pressed into the surface of the workpiece at a high speed. The “crater dots” form legible characters and/or a Data Matrix code.

You can find further information about the Data Matrix code.
