Dot Peen Markers and Lasers for Military Aircraft Manufacturers
& Aviation Parts Suppliers

In a high-heat environment like a plane engine, temporary markings won’t work. You can’t rely on the usual marking methods like labeling, inkjet and RFID. Those methods may wear off over time or smudge because they are unable to dry on non-porous surfaces. What’s a valuable long-term solution for jets, defense aircraft, satellites, rocket engines and more? Clear, permanent marks made by lasers or dot peen markers.

These unique identifiers and various other security measures help prevent counterfeiting and unauthorized distribution. The traceability complies with international standards, including ATA Spec 2000, ensuring each component can be tracked throughout its lifecycle.

The metals and other materials that aerospace engineering companies and airplane manufacturing companies use can withstand forces and environments that other modes of transportation don’t have to withstand. No other marking system offers the clarity and dependability that a dot peen marker machine offers. Whether your aircraft is designed with titanium, carbide, aluminum, plastics, platinum ceramics or another material, dot peen markers can mark on it and mark fast.

The Jet Age is over. Let us welcome you to the Laser Age.

Telesis stands ready to help aerospace-component manufacturers as the industry-wide shift to laser marking accelerates. Our engineers are expert in connecting our laser systems to your robotic system, camera systems, and your entire supply-chain apparatus. Additionally, Telesis complies with AS478-3 and MIL-STD-130 standards and meets UID regulations with the use of 2D code matrix.

Let Us Welcome You to the Dot Peen Marker Age

Known for durability, permanence and versatility, dot peen marking can work on various metals and hard plastics. These marks can withstand high temperatures, moisture and exposure to chemicals, perfect for military aircraft and aviation.

Aerospace part marking systems have many advantages, including:

  • Operational efficiency: The dot peen marker process is faster and more efficient than other etching operations, marking aerospace components within seconds.
  • High-quality markings: Aerospace part marking machines create permanent, precise and easily repeatable markings, minimizing the risk of errors and inconsistencies.
  • Application versatility: You can use dot peen markers to mark a comprehensive range of identifying characteristics, such as barcodes and serial numbers, without size or shape limitations.
  • Durability: Dot peen markers are highly resistant to harsh environments, extreme temperatures and corrosive chemicals of the aerospace industry.
  • Eco-friendliness: The aerospace part marking process does not generate waste products or harmful materials.
  • Traceability: Dot peen marker machines promote manufacturing traceability by enabling organizations to attach unique identifiers to their products. As a result, manufacturers can better track and trace product data and remain compliant with federal regulations.

Materials Used in Aerospace

Use dot peen marking machines to mark a wide assortment of materials for the aerospace industry:

  • Stainless steel: This wear-resistant metal is often used for structural components and machined parts.
  • Brass: Brass is durable, corrosion-resistant and easy to form, making it suitable for aerospace fasteners, nuts, bolts and casings.
  • Titanium: This lightweight yet sturdy metal can endure extreme temperatures, making it a common choice for aircraft frames and engines.
  • Silver: Silver is ideal for high-performance bearings due to its function as a lubricant in extreme conditions.
  • Plastic: Plastic in the aerospace industry is used for everything from engine caps to fuel tank covers to interior seats.
  • Aluminum: Aluminum has similar features to titanium but is less expensive. It is often used for airplane parts and components.
  • Carbide: Due to its hard synthetic construction, tungsten carbide use is common in engine components.
  • Platinum: Platinum’s durable, corrosion-resistant build makes it useful for heat exchangers, engine components, turbines and fuel nozzles.
  • Coated materials: Some aerospace metals are specially coated to prevent corrosion and oxidation.

  • Landing gear parts
  • Actuators
  • Turbine components
  • Fasteners
  • Panels
  • Controls
  • Nozzles
  • Vanes
  • Refurbished engines
  • Pumps
  • Thermal exchange systems
  • Brake discs
  • Transmission gears
  • Combustors
  • Generators
  • Thrust reversers
  • ID plates
  • Gear assemblies

Dot Peen Marking Machine Recommendations

At Telesis Technologies, Inc., we manufacture PINSTAMP® dot peen machines, as well as BenchMark® dot peen machines.


The key features of PINSTAMP® include:

  • Precision marking: These machines can create precise, high-quality marks on almost any material. They can also do fine details for small characters and complex logos.
  • Versatility: Dot peen marking can work on flat, curved and even different types and hardness of materials. It can also do small intricate markings and larger shapes and sizes.
  • Durability: The marks created by the PINSTAMP® machines are deep and permanent, able to withstand harsh environments without degrading.
  • Quality: The precision and consistency of the marks ensure a quality control process for each component. You can easily identify and trace parts throughout their lifecycle and supply chain.


If you decide on the BenchMark® line instead, there are a number of features you can look forward to:

  • Compact and portable options: The BenchMark® machines are generally smaller than other dot peen machines. The BenchMark320® can be used anywhere as it doesn’t need compressed air to operate.
  • Low to medium volumes: This machine is for you if this is your production rate. The BenchMark® is ideal for applications needing balance, speed and efficiency for medium marking volumes.
  • User-friendly: The BenchMark® line features user-friendly interfaces, making them a great place to start for beginners.
  • Precision and durability: As with our PINSTAMP® range, you can expect the same high-quality and premium precision. Plus, the result is sharp and clean with little impact on the material.
