To achieve complete part traceability in automotive manufacturing, you need to mark parts as soon as possible after they’re created. Nowadays, this is right when they’re out of the mold. Codes such as data matrix and QR codes, or even logos and vehicle identification numbers (VIN), must be marked directly onto automotive parts. These may include:
Choose the Right Technology for Automotive Part Marking
Don’t miss the mark. How you choose to mark parts has an impact on traceability. You probably know the limitations of traditional marking techniques such as inkjet printing, dot peening, and tag marking (labels and nameplates).
In comparison to traditional marking techniques, laser marking offers you numerous advantages:
- No consumables
- Low maintenance
- Permanent markings
- High performance
- No contaminants
- High contrast
Laser Marking - A Technology for the Road Ahead
The times are changing, and so are traceability requirements in the automotive industry. Put the Laserax laser marking machines to the test. Find out for yourself that they meet all your requirements and outperform what’s available on the market.
No Impact on Production
You will mark your parts with the fastest direct part marking technology. Laserax lasers are even the fastest lasers on the market!
Your production rate won’t be slowed down. You will get high performance, speed, and throughput.
We have developed processes that are shotblast and e-coat resistant. Nothing else on the market allows you to integrate direct part marking before these post-treatments.
And what’s more. You can mark die-cast parts as soon as they’re extracted from the die. Your castings ain’t too hot for you. No need to wait until they’ve cooled down.
The laser marking machines you will be using are recognized to be 100% safe (Class 1) according to international safety standards.
This means that they are ready to be safely integrated in your production line, and that you do not need to take any additional safety measures.
Take a look at our inline laser marking machines—the best direct part marking solutions available on the market—that meet your need for traceability.
Let Us Know Your Application
Let our experts know your automotive marking application. They will provide you with all the information you need. They can also guide you in choosing the laser marking machine that is just right for you, and arrange tests using your parts to demonstrate the marking’s post-treatment resistance (such as shotblasting, e-coating, powder coating, and heat treating).
