Industrial Parts traceability and identity is an increasingly popular requirement for safety and management of the ever-increasing number of parts and their uses across different industries. Permanent and robust identification of industrial parts has become crucial in manufacturing processes.
The identification marks can help to accurately and precisely trace serial numbers and other vital statistics of parts for traceability, medical liability cases, recalls as well as quality-control and supply-chain management. Part-marking can also be used to engrave logos, labels, customer info and all manner of information. Lasers and other impact 2-D data marking methods are available today for use in a wide range of metal components.
Part-marking is used in a wide range of industries including aeronautics, automobile, electrics and electronics, defense, navy, mechanical, mining, medical, metallurgy, motorbikes and motorcycles, oil and gas, metal processing, nuclear and personal protection equipment. In the automotive industry for instance, you will need Part marking machine for marking engine parts, fuel supply components, chassis, gear case, power and steering system and so on.
Industrial manufacturers require permanent markings on parts that must withstand the rigorousness of the manufacturing process and all use cases. The marks must also be formatted in an easy to validate format such as vision-readable and human readable UID 2-D markings. Such markings can include batch numbers, serial numbers, and manufacturing dates.
Technologies for part-marking/traceability
Available technologies for part-making include dot-peen marking systems, air-impact markers, lasers and hand-stamping with hammers. The latest laser machines used in part-making are fiber-pulsed, diode lasers or air-cooled lasers that supply varied power levels and doesn’t require much maintenance.
For many years, most manufacturers have depended on the standard pneumatic dot pin marking machine. This pneumatic machine is adjustable, has a low failure rate, lesser wearing parts, maintenance cost is low, flexible and lightweight. This has worked well for flat and near flat metal surfaces; however, it has fallen short according to a majority of manufacturers.
Over time, industrial manufacturers have realized that a normal pneumatic marking machine cannot fulfill all their part marking requirements. As mentioned, standard pneumatic dot pin marking machine is only suitable for flat or near flat surfaces and doesn’t offer the desired flexibility. Most manufacturers need a machine that can mark uneven items such as round steel rods, tubes, pipes, and so on. As a result, many industries are opting for more flexible options such as the electric Vibro Peen Marking Machine.
