Case Study: Traceability RAVAL Fuel tank venting systems FOBA helps Raval to make their automotive components reliably traceable, and thus makes a substantial contribution to improved product quality and process reliability. Laser marked Raval valves: (from left to right) FLV fill limit valve, ROV roll over valve, small roll over valve The broad range of solutions FOBA marking lasers provide for traceability in the automotive industries goes far beyond the pure laser marking of an identification code. Particularly important, what sets the FOBA solution apart from its competition is its unique three stage closed-loop marking process: The part validation, the laser marking, and the verification of traceability codes.

Case Study: RAVAL Fuel Venting Systems A melted engraving for the traceability of venting valves for fuel tank systems Raval is a World’s leading manufacturer of fuel tank venting systems. For many years now, Raval puts trust in FOBA's CO2 laser marking systems. The automotive part supplier that is headquartered in Israel and manufactures in the US, China and Luxemburg, uses FOBA marking lasers to mark its venting valves for fuel tank systems with a reliably readable traceability code. Raval Europe S.A. in Luxemburg Secure part tracking Raval primarily engraves alphanumeric codes...

Case Study: Traceability for Auto Parts Traceability in the automotive industry: Looking back ensures more security Part tracking and traceability are fundamental elements of modern manufacturing processes. Especially in the automotive supply industry where various safety-critical components are manufactured. Auto parts have to be controlled and completely tracked to ensure safe and high-quality products and production processes. To this end, both automobile manufacturers and suppliers to the industry – such as Raval – mark their products with various alphanumeric character strings and complex...

Before and after laser marking: Six verification stages prevent marking errors In order to eliminate possible marking errors and defects, FOBA offers six vision based verification stages to both the part and the laser mark. The vision system that accompanies the laser marking, IMP, is directly integrated in FOBA sys- tems. Additional third party hardware or a separate inspection process for the verification and reliability of the marking process is thus not needed. Traceabili- ty marks are applied and verified with one system both efficiently and reliably. Three verification stages prior to laser...

Added value: Laser marking as process solution This extensive verification approach has the potential to address and prevent most of the five major components of marking errors and defects that cause costly waste. One, users benefit from less scrap, second, a better product and marking quality, third, a robust accurate marking process, fourth, a cost reducing automated process and fifth, an increase in production efficiency. Not only suppliers to the Automotive industry but also Automobile manufacturers benefit with a sophisticated process solution rather than a system solution for product identification. FOBA...
