Scribe marking is also referred to as scratching and part engraving. This process creates characters or logos by dragging or pushing the stylus through the material to create a solid, continuous line mark. This is a popular process where noise levels of the marking application must be controlled. Based on material and required mark depth, either a carbide or diamond stylus can be used.
Scribe marking is often used on heat-treated components to obtain a light, well-defined mark. It is popular for part marking in automotive production areas with noise restrictions. Scribe is also a great technology for marking nameplates, tags and data plates.
