Product Marking & Traceability

Zenith Tecnica provides the ability to mark products with branding, certifications and identification labels.

Labels allow for high levels of traceability to all materials, powder, and processes used to manufacture components. For full traceability right down to position in a build, serial numbers can be printed directly on components, or lot numbers can be laser marked during the inspection. Customers can use this capability to enable identification during assembly and traceability throughout its service life.
