Embedded Identifier Module (EIM)

Industry Sector

Aerospace/Biomedical/High-value

Objective

  • To embed identifiers into critical, high-value AM  parts for product authentication

  • Digital supply chain enablement

  • Initiative for AM Distributed manufacturing deployment

Innovation Applied

  • Embed unique digital code as a mechanical artifact of the printing process

  • Non-invasive ultrasonic surface scanning

Key Benefits

  • Create trusted supply chain ecosystem for critical, high-value AM parts through authenticity querying

  • Sub-surface impregnation; hidden

  • Enable tracking of AM parts including production line, production date and even the source of the powder, etc., depending on which information is required
