Off Topic - Bar Coding Directly Onto Metal


(system) #1
You could do it with Electro Chemical Etching. We make many parts with this
method. We
haven't done any bar codes, but you should be able to do it if you can make
the stencils.

We have a customer that would like us to put a bar code
directly (not via a label) on a zinc plated part. Each part
does not need a unique bar code #, all they need is a
scannable id that proves that the part was actually
installed on the product. Apparently their assemblers are
forgetting to put this part on the product and they would
like to have the product pass a scanner that verifies the
installation of the part.

Anyone out there doing this?
Any ideas(other than telling them to fire their
assemblers!!)?
Any Resources?

Thanks for your input!!

Check out this site http://www.webermarking.com/html/ml500.html
they and others offer ink jet bar code printers for marking parts.
