Component marking in production processes is required for many reasons, including unique identification, traceability or legal requirements.

Scribing is a pneumatic process that pushes a diamond needle into the material surface at specific points, changing the structure of the metal where the needle makes contact. An axis drive moves the needle in the X- and Y-direction, leaving a continuous depression in the material. One major field of application for IMS technology is the tamper-proof inscription of the vehicle identification number (VIN), an internationally standardized 17-character unique identifier. Other components, such as engines, housings and plant components, can also be marked in this way.
