SOLUTION FOR PRODUCT TRACEABILITY

DAMATRIX CODE MARKING

2D codes as Datamatrix code (DMC) or QR Code (QRC) is now widely used in industry forproduct traceability. Like the barcode, it helps prevent human error and allows the recording of large information in a very small surface: 30x times smaller than a barcode. Damatrix labelling is a low cost and versatile technology for traceability solutions for finished products and their smaller compnents.  The use of digital technologies such as laser, inkjet printing, electro percussion or electrochemical marking have evolved to adapt to many materials and shapes.

CERINNOV’s solution for 2D code marking use a proprietary ceramic ink that is deposed on the product in a first step. Then a laser is used to increase locally the ink temperature and make it spread to the product surface. Excess ink is then removed to make the 2D code appears.

A UNIQUE SOLUTION FOR 2D CODE MARKING

HIGH CONTRAST FOR A BETTER READABILITY

RESISTANT TO ABRASION, HIGH TEMPERATURES, VACUUM, CHEMICAL AGGRESSION

HOW IT WORKS? 

CERINNOV’s solution for 2D code marking use a proprietary ceramic ink that is deposed on the product in a first step. Then a laser is used to increase locally the ink temperature and make it spread to the product surface. Excess ink is then removed to make the 2D code appears.

This permanent 2D code can be applied on different type of materials including metal, glass and ceramics, including even those used in technical and exigent application (some examples below).

 

MARKING, TRACEABILITY AND AUTHENTIFICATION

LASERMARQ

Integrated with the powder without laser sintering equipment modification, the complex optical tracer (derived from
nanotechnology) provides a simple, robust, economical and unobtrusive solution for authentification and anticounterfeiting. Invisible to the naked eye, the tracer returns a unique signature when excited at a specific wavelength. Developed in partnership with NAOMARQ (ALCEN Group), this process offers a complete and ready for use solution including the formulation of powders, laser sintering equipment and detection equipment (spectrometer).

For use in all types of industry

NAOMARQ markers are perfectly incorporated into the products and all manufacturing processes.

Dedicated and reliable

NAOMARQ optic tracers guarantee the inviolability of a signature on any marked product. The formulation is inaccessible to counterfeiters and cannot possibly be reproduced in an identical form.

Unique and invisible

NAOMARQ markers, derived from nanotechnologies and invisible to the naked eye, enable a signature or a unique optic code to be attributed to every marked product. The product’s real DNA, this code can be used as proof of ownership before the courts.

FUNCTIONALIZATION & MELTING

Our applications allow:
– To functionalize surfaces (thermal, dielectric, chemical barrier)
– To reach very high temperatures
– The melting of raw materials
– Energy savings
– High flexibility

CUTS, DRILLS & WELDING

We also offer some applications as:
– Realisation of an organic coated ablation on glass, metal or plastic
– Cutting or drilling glass or ceramics
– Welding glass/glass, ceramic/glass, metal/ceramic and metal/glass by laser sintering of mineral powder
