Full life cycle traceability is now an important part of the Automotive Industry. Applications vary; some require a simple human readable identification such as a VIN number, whilst a growing number of applications utilise 2D data matrix barcoding with vision systems to read and track components.
We have a marking solution to suit every automotive requirement.
Scribe marking is ideal for marking VIN numbers on a chassis
Dot peen marking is often used for a variety of applications from raw material right through to finished alloy wheel trims.
ECM is ideal for marking logos on components such as exhaust pipes and catalytic converters as well as marking thin walled sections. We also specialise in providing a system for analysing the stress in sheet metal forming for car body parts.
Our fibre laser range is modular and ideal for integrated applications predominately marking on metals components as well as some hydrocarbon based plastics.
Machines can be supplied with a vacuum clamping system for marking on non-magnetic or painted surfaces, as well as electromagnetic clamping for non-painted surfaces.
