COUTH® at Automotive marking, the specialist providing different solutions for part marking of the vehicle’s structure, using micro-percussion, scribing and laser technologies. The marking of parts identification codes and 2D codes, such as serial numbers are compulsory in most of the companies in the automotive sector in order to meet with product traceability requirements. The codes, mostly Data Matrix codes contain information referring to the properties of the parts, production information, batch numbers, date of manufacture and much more. The marking on components must be clearly legible, either visually or by scanner. They must also be highly durable markings, in order to guarantee the traceability of the marked products. Deep scribing with our integrable marking machines, enables a permanent and quality traceability of the cold or hotforming stamped chassis parts or whether they are subsequently painted, galvanised, etc. In many cases an identification text marking is combined with a Datamatrix code so that the code can be read and verified by an automated process.
