DynamicMold® (DM) is the innovative marking technology, patented by matriq, for individual parts marking on a wide range of plastic components during their fabrication, directly inside the forming or reshaping process. To achieve this, a mold insert is integrated into each cavity of a mold of an injection molding machine, and therein it marks every plastic part with a unique code. This solution can be used not only for injection molding, but also for blow molding, thermo-forming or any other forming process.
Marking is performed in-line, in-mold and millisecond-fast, without changing the production cycle time. Marking comes in the form of a digital date - with our first product, the DM-date insert - or a DataMatrix code, with our next-generation product, the DM-qode. These DataMatrix codes will be readable by code-reader cameras adapted to our contrast mechanism as well as by smartphones. Besides enabling product traceability, the DynamicMold technology also offers the possibility to integrate anti-counterfeiting features into the codes, thus allowing brand protection. We will offer owners of branded plastic products facing copy-fraud exclusive customer-owned designs with our DM-brand insert.
