Automotive Part Marking & Traceability

VIN Numbers, Automotive Component Traceability

Manufacturers of automotive components need to permanently mark serial numbers, date codes, VIN numbers, 2D codes and logos on engine components, powertrain components, frames, bodies, data plates and more.

Dot peen and laser technologies are most frequently utilized for automotive direct part marking and component traceability. Integrated solutions are available for high-speed, high-accuracy marking in automated production/assembly lines, including robotic applications. We can also custom design integrated marking and vision systems and create custom fixtures to meet specific marking requirements.

Permanent Marking of Automotive Parts & Components:

  • Engine and powertrain components
  • Steel frames and bodies – VIN marking
  • Data plates and tags
  • Castings and forgings
  • Plastic and rubber parts
  • Exhaust systems
  • Gearbox parts
