What is scribing marking?

The scribing machine uses a carbide or diamond tip to apply permanent marking directly to the material, from plastic to the hardest steels (up to 62HRC). Unlike dot peen, the tip does not vibrate but slides along the surface marking and tracing a continuous homogeneous line.
 

The result is very clear and aesthetic. This process has the advantage of being very easy to use, it is particularly used for marking hollow parts with high resonance, tubes, sheets and for engraving nameplates.

Learn more about scribing applications

Silent with aesthetic and robust results, scribing marking machines are used in all industrial operations, subject to noise level limitations:

  • For marking large metal parts/components (beams, rails, chassis and exhaust pipes etc.)

  • For marking V.I.N. numbers (Vehicle Identification Numbers) on cars, motorbikes, and heavyweight vehicles, etc.

Application sectors:

Automotive, motorbikes and motorcycles, farm machinery, public works, lorries and trailers, steel industry, construction, railway, oil and gas, etc.

Materials:

From the hardest steel sheets, the scribing machines respect the mechanical properties of each other and offer high-quality and extremely durable marking.
