Permanent marking on metal, whether stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, brass, or copper, presents a couple of unique
challenges but can be accomplished in a number of ways.
When you're looking to make a permanent mark on metal, there are a few options for how the mark can be achieved. Any marking method that removes part of the metal to create the mark will be an option. This includes etching and engraving methods.
Surface marking methods are also options, although they typically rely on durable, long-lasting ink being applied to the surface, which can be somewhat cumbersome and is not always ideal for harsher applications.
This standard provides criteria for the selection of the application process, as well as all other specific requirements that will be part of the deliverable item, such as marking protocol, content, font size, type, location, etc.
Simply stating in the product definition data that the marking be in accordance with MIL-STD-130 is not sufficient. The item identification marking requirements must be determined by the Design and/or Acquiring Activity in their contractual instruments, and tailored to meet the needs of their specific application.
