VIN marking


VIN, Vehicle Identification Number: 3 letters for an acronym that has an essential place in automotive traceability and marking of parts.
The VIN number engraving is regulated and its traceability must be ensured for 30 years.

This standard serial number of 17 characters is marked on the vehicle chassis and is unique, thus ensuring traceability throughout the manufacturing process and also after leaving the factory.

The VIN is a real “safety” asset for manufacturers and owners as this number is shown in the log book and allows owners to be notified when certain parts need to be checked or replaced.

It is also essential for the identification of stolen vehicles.

Our integrated VIN engraving solutions


For the VIN to be perfectly preserved and identifiable over time, the quality of the number engraving is essential.
It requires a perfectly suitable tool, able to mark the hardest steels, and compatible with the constraints and requirements of automotive production standards.

Our VIN chassis marking solutions can be integrated into standard scribing or laser machines, which can be integrated into your production lines or custom solutions, according to your specific needs.

SIC MARKING has developed two complete and configurable solutions for its vehicle manufacturer customers: one for VIN scribemarking and the other for VIN laser marking.
