Military Spec Engravings

Many manufacturers don’t have the technology or know-how to satisfy military specifications. Sophisticated technologies, like Electric Discharge Machining (EDM), Computer Numerical Control Machining (CNC) and embossing can make it possible to meet those very demanding military specifications – again and again.

Sine-tific Solutions has the resources and industry experience to provide Military Specification Identification Products for specialized applications. Our familiarity with Military standards for unique identification (UID) products will ensure that your order will pass inspection. We generally work with Mil Spec 130, Mil-DTL-15024F, and Mil-P-19834, but can accommodate a number of other Military Specification engravings identification requirements as well.

Mil-STD 130M (Mil Spec 130)

A standard mandated by the Department of Defense to be compliant with military Unique Identifier (UID) requirements. This specification directs all assets and personalized property must be marked with a serialized identification number that is unique and machine-readable. This standard provides the item marking criteria for development of specific marking requirements and methods for identification of items of military property produced, stocked, stored, and issued by or for the Department of Defense. This standard addresses criteria and data content for both free text and machine-readable information (MRI) applications of item identification marking.


Mil-DTL-15024 is a military spec engravings method for Military identification that requires characters to be either sunken or relief etched into a metal or plastic plate.

Mil-DTL-15024 performance specification covers the physical characteristics of plates, tags, and bands (identification devices) used for identification of equipment. Examples of information to be marked on the identification devices are covered in the applicable specification sheets. The types of ID devices that Mil-DTL-15024 covers, includes:

  • Etched or chemically-engraved plate
