Heat-resistant ceramic ink for data codes on metal components

Heat-resistant ceramic ink for data codes on metal components

Fraunhofer researchers have developed an extremely heat-resistant ceramic-based ink

For the first time, this enables metal components processed in the automotive industry at temperatures over 1,000 ºC to be marked with a code. The code can be scanned and is linked to a database in which all the manufacturing parameters for the component in question are stored. The advantages of the technology are not simply the ability to detect production glitches and defective components at an early stage. It also opens up wide-ranging possibilities for designing process chains in the industry more efficiently and reducing their carbon footprint significantly. Even component forgeries can be prevented by means of special additives in the ink.
