Direct part marking or DPM is the process of marking permanent text or a machine-readable symbol such as the Data Matrix code directly on the surface of a part so as to provide complete traceability throughout the component's life cycle.
Unlike other methods such as label printing, direct marking has several advantages:
Many industries implement the monitoring of parts using DPM identification (direct part marking).
The marking of 2D data matrix code at each stage of a product's assembly guarantees its traceability throughout its life:
|Component marking →||Sub-assembly identification →||Final assembly marking →||Finished product identification →||Maintenance marking|
