Magneto-optical VIN Scan
What is the device used for?
With the magneto-optical method, chassis numbers are examined for manipulation.
The magneto-optical process originally comes from forensic science. It is used for different applications. By attaching a magnet, a magnetic field is generated at the point of examination. The magnetic field penetrates up to 2 mm into the workpiece. A film makes the magnetic field visible via a reader.
Changes in the structure, such as digits and letters stamped with beat numbers as well as manipulations or changes, can be made visible.
The process is mobile and absolutely non-destructive. The examination itself usually only takes about 30 minutes. Subsequently, the generated magnetic images are compared with the database.
