A requirement of the aeronautical and defence market is that all substrates are coded to ensure traceability during the production process.

Manufacturers of components for aerospace mark their products to identify them, to add instructions and to enable tracking and traceability Increasingly a 2D code is required to meet the SAE AS9132 standard (aerospace) and MILS PEC 130 (defence) standards, although laser has not yet been approved by many aerospace companies for critical components where Dot Peen remains the dominant technology
