Marking your manufactured and machined parts helps identify components and products, provide instructions, add a logo, and combat counterfeiting. Fitz Manufacturing offers clients various part marking techniques because we recognize the value they offer your business. It’s a service that provides benefits now as well as in the future. How? By not only delivering on the functions listed above but also by serving as an effective means of tracing the lifecycle of a part. Lifecycle information gleaned from part marking can, in turn, help your business identify continuous improvement opportunities.
Techniques such as laser marking (which works on a wide array of materials and often looks cleaner and neater than other methods) and CNC engraving (which our software and experience enables us to do with our CNC milling machines) leave clear imprints that serve their part marking purpose without detracting from the part design. The importance of their durability cannot be overstated, either. Take aerospace parts: some of them might be in service for as many as 30 years. That makes the clarity and reliability of their part marking a critical element in their manufacturing.
