What is a Data Matrix Part Marking System?

A Data Matrix Part Marking System is used to apply a two-dimensional (2D) Data Matrix Barcode, which encodes alphanumeric text or raw data in a pattern of dots, arranged in a square pattern, marked directly on the surface of a part or an assembly. 2D Data Matrix Barcodes can be made to contain useful information in a very small area, such as; Time & Date, Serial and/or Part Number, Lot Number, or Material Composition. They can also be made to contain a URL or Web Link to a Manufacturer’s Website, a Product Cut Sheet, Technical Specifications, MSDS, Installation Instructions, or to a page where you can re-order the part or assembly.

2D Data Matrix Barcodes can also be used in conjunction with asset tagging and in-plant preventative maintenance programs, as a way of marking and logging maintenance and service repairs to machines and production equipment.

Data Matrix Part Marking Systems offer users the ability to permanently mark a part, or assembly, with a lot of information in a small area. A 2D Data Matrix Barcode Scanner can read the code, which allows for parts and assemblies to be identified and tracked for the lifetime of the part, from origination to the end of its life cycle, this is known as lot traceability.

Part marking devices are used in industrial settings to help identify parts for supply chain visibility, improving quality control systems, and reducing liability and risk. When data collection is part of the production process, and distribution histories are kept, companies can react to issues that may arise and quickly respond to manufacturing or warranty issues.

Companies can utilize fully integrated marking systems, benchtop marking machines, and hand-held marking devices to permanently mark and identify parts and assemblies with marks such as; Alphanumeric Series, Serial Numbers, Part Numbers, Manufacturing Date Codes, 2D Data Matrix Barcodes, Company Logos and MORE! If you can imagine it, MarkinBOX and Patmark can mark it.
