Direct Part Marking (DPM) Scanners & Terminals

Direct Part Marking (DPM) is a technology used to produce two different surface conditions on an item. These markings can be created by laser etching, molding, peening, etc. Direct part marking (DPM) is a process to permanently mark parts with product information including serial numbers, part numbers, date codes, and barcodes. This is done to allow the tracking of parts through the full life cycle. DPM is often used by automotive, aerospace, and electronic manufacturers to facilitate a reliable identification of their parts. This can assist in data logging for safety, warranty issues and satisfy regulatory requirements. The preferred codes are the Data Matrix and the QR Code.
