We deal with many industries that demand the highest quality product and strictest level of traceability. With this in mind, we offer a comprehensive range of marking solutions to meet the majority of requirements expected by today's standards.

Components can be marked with unique identifying features. This typically includes manufacturer identification, batch codes, material codes and part numbers. Some methods also enable more detailed features such as company logos, safety marks and even barcodes.

Raised Identification

raised identification markings in forged components

This form of marking is achieved during production by engraving all identification marks required in to the forging tools. This can be a client’s name, part number, batch number and even corporate logo if required. This method is ideal for medium to large production runs.


Micro-Percussion Marking

micro percussion marking of metal components

Marking is achieved by electromechanically striking a carbide or diamond stylus assembly against the surface of the part to be marked. This process doesn’t remove material and cause stress points.

We have several Micro Percussion marking systems to cover a diverse range of requirements.

Fixed Unit

Circumference Marking
When used in conjunction with our fixed unit this device rotates components to enable marking around a circumference.

Chemical Etching

chemical etching of metal components

This is a method of marking where acid is used to create a relief on the exposed surface of a component. Complex designs and logos can be achieved using this process.


CNC Engraving

cnc engraving and marking of metal and forged components

A diverse method of applying markings using a combination of computer aided design and CNC machining. We have several vertical machining centres enabling us to offer this service, best suited for applications requiring larger more prominent identification.


Stamping and Cold Pressing

cold stamping and pressing for marking

This is a traditional method of marking through the use of hand stamps, designed for low volume requirements. Press stamps are used for larger volumes, using power presses for a fast and economical solution.
