Easy to use and always dependable. GIMA etching pens are the ideal solution for durable and permanent marking of all types of metals parts.

Etching pen

Many procedures require dependable marking of metal components - be it in the warehouse or on the shop floor. Conventional methods such as ink or colour are easy to use, but are often susceptible to solvents, oil, humidity and high temperatures. Engraved or embossed marks are more resilient but require, however, more effort and are less cost-effective.

The practical GIMA etching pens combine the advantages of both processes. They can be used quickly and effortlessly yet they offer a durable, oil and solvent resistant marking.

Tool making, machine construction, quality control, model making etc.

  • Clean surface area thoroughly with a grindstone or abrasive web
