Micro-engraving unique ID Codes on firing pins provide forensic scientist with new tools for solving crime scenes

LAKE MARY, FL-(August 18th, 2015)- Fonon Corporation (“Fonon”) is pleased to announce recent advances in laser micro-engraving technology allowing the precise, microscopic stamping of unique ID codes on firing pins making it possible to link shell casings recovered at crime scenes to the firearm that fired them.  When the firearm is discharged, a unique alpha-numeric code identifying the weapon’s make, model and serial number is “fingerprinted” onto the primer or rim of the cartridge case.

Fonon’s advanced micro-stamping technology now provides firearm manufacturers with new tools that help law enforcement deter gun trafficking.  Traffickers generally purchase guns with the intent to illegally transfer the weapon to others.  Traffickers who purchases guns for this purpose would now be on notice that the cartridge shell could be used to trace the gun back to them if the gun was used in the commission of a crime.















The American Bar Association (ABA) has recommended that federal, state, and territorial governments enact microstamping laws that would enable law enforcement officers to identify the weapon used in a crime and the purchaser of the firearm.  The ABA concluded, “Microstamping technology will be a material aid to law enforcement in the effort to solve crimes committed by use of guns.”  With California taking the lead, similar legislation continues to be discussed in New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maryland, Wisconsin and Illinois with other states monitoring the legislation progress.
