XF530 p/m

XF530 p/m: Deep and permanent dot peen marking system
This dot peen marking machine creates durable tamper-proof marks on all metals. This is the perfect solution to identify parts that will withstand harsh conditions, direct marking before part processing and for anti-counterfeiting markings.
    With up to 0.5 mm depth, the XF530 dot peen machine is the only deep marking system able to reach this level of depth in such a short cycle time. The marking results are clear and resistant to weather conditions, contaminants, rust, and guaranteed long-term readability. Its also the best solution to perform a direct marking before part processing, painting, or surface treatment.
    The XF530 large marking area of 200 mm (7.9 in) X 50 mm (2 in) is specially adapted to engrave large characters (more than 10mm (0.4) height) for easy readability from a long distance or in outdoor locations. This deep dot peen marking machine is the perfect solution for the oil & gas market and building industries.
    This deep dot peen engraving machine in pneumatic or electromagnetic version is made of high-quality and high-performance components. Its proven design has been improved for decades to obtain exceptional durability and reliability, especially in the most demanding applications. XF530 is guaranteed to have durable tamper-proof marks on all materials with a reduced cost of ownership.

XF530 are mobile dot peen marking machine

Our range of products is easily transformable into a movable solution to mark large parts. The perfect part marker!  With a pair of large handles for easy positioning combined and standard or customizable feet, the machine is always firmly positioned on the part. Also, 2 rings at the top can be connected to a balancer for improved ergonomics and to integrate into pipeline marking.

Dot peen marking for identification on production line

Our pneumatic dot peen machines are the best to mark text at a very short cycle time. Compressed air offers exceptional performance for markings.

The stylus pin vibrates at high frequency, meeting the highest speed requirements in industrial sectors. Pneumatic dot peen is also the preferred solution to create direct marking before part processing, painting or surface treatments.

The width of the line is large enough to remain legible even after paint, powder coat or plating has been applied.

XF530: Technifor first deep marking machine

The XF530 allowed Technifor to reach heavy industries

The XF530 is one of the latest Technifor products and is available with both pneumatic and electromagnetic technology. This dot peen machine was originally designed as a portable machine for deep marking in heavy industries such as oil & gas, aeronautics, and construction. Voluminous parts such as pipes, frames and metallic beams could then be identified without being moved.

With the XF530 Technifor was able to reach the heavy industry market and reinforce its leading position as a worldwide marking machine manufacturer. Today, Gravotech perpetuates what Technifor started by providing all industries with appropriate traceability solutions regardless of the part to be marked.
