MIL-STD-130 MARKING REQUIREMENTS
This standard requires qualifying government furnished property in possession of contractors (PIPC), and qualifying end item deliverables or legacy items to be marked with a machine readable 2D Data Matrix bar code. There are several allowed methods for marking, the most common being a polyester or polymide label marked with a thermal transfer printer. Other methods are metal nameplate laser etched, metal plate metalphoto processed, direct part-marked by dot peen, ink jet, laser etch or chemical etch.
The bar code must meet several quality specifications, pass a verification process with a grade of “B” or better, and “be as permanent as the normal life expectancy of the item and be capable of withstanding the environmental tests and cleaning procedures specified for the item to which it is affixed.” Our team of experts will help you identify what is required for your labeling and approved shipping, in accordance with MIL-STD 130.
