To prevent counterfeiting, SIC Marking says that an increasing number of the world’s largest bearing manufacturers are adopting its traceability solutions. For instance, the company recently supplied a solution to a major Swedish ball bearing manufacturer that wanted to mark an alphanumeric and Data Matrix code on steel bearings with diameters ranging from 150 to 600 mm. SIC Marking’s customised station is equipped with an IPG 50W laser for marking on the bearing face, and an IPG 3D laser – automatically controlled in two axes – that is capable of marking on the part radius. SIC also integrated a proof-reading system.
