Component marking for extreme process conditions – ceramic phosphors in metal processing

The requirements in metal processing, such as high temperatures and special atmospheres demand adapted solutions for component marking. With CeraCode®, researchers at Fraunhofer have developed a marking for metal components that withstands even high temperatures without affecting the component's properties.

Core element of CeraCode® are ceramic luminescent materials that respond to optical excitation by light with pronounced luminescence. These materials are very robust: they withstand high temperatures, are insensitive to chemical influences and can be mixed with various other materials. This means they can be applied to the metal component as a machine-readable DataMatrix code (DMC) using standard industrial printers. The technology concept developed for end-to-end digital component detection has been marketed since 2019 by Senodis Technologies GmbH.

In this NDT4INDUSTRY seminar Dr. Manuela Heymann gives a theoretical insight into requirements, challenges and quality assurance for individual part marking in metal processing. Furthermore, the printing process and quality monitoring at the test bench will be presented in a lab tour.


This semnar is part of the online Seminar series NDT4INDUSTRY – Recent developments in advanced NDT

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
