The company provides permanent traceability solutions using direct part marking through Data Matrix codes or human readable text across various manufacturing sectors. From VIN numbers at OEMs to the smallest component part, its traceability solutions provide a key element in enabling the automotive supply chain to maintain and improve its quality standards.
Direct part marking (also known as etching, engraving or scribing) and traceability is playing an increasingly important role in manufacturing. Increasing numbers of companies are automating their marking processes whether through data matrix codes or human readable text. If properly integrated into the production process, part marking can provide a platform for improved quality control and traceability that can reduce costs and improve yield, says the company.
Technifor is part of the Gravotech group, and the inventor of dot peen. More information at http://www.technifor.com/
