What is part marking?
Part marking refers to the permanent labeling or identification of individual parts and components, typically through methods like laser marking, dot peening, casting, molding, etching etc. It is commonly used in manufacturing and other industries to imprint essential information like part numbers, serial numbers, logos, barcodes etc. for purposes of traceability, quality control, regulatory compliance etc.

Laser engraving (laser etching)
Laser engraving is fast and precise. It provides durable marking that does not wear over time, commonly used for serial numbers.
The color of the engraving is typically the natural color of the raw material.
Silk screening is an inexpensive option for marking parts. It allows for a wide range of color options, which can be indicated with either a Pantone or RAL number.
