Direct Part Marking: Enabling Cradle-to-Grave Traceability

Posted by Mark Boyle on Tue, Oct 30, 2012 @ 08:00 AM

Product traceability over its complete lifecycle is one of the key issues driving marking technology today. Manufacturers are looking for cradle-to-grave traceability to improve product quality and make sure all their suppliers fall in line with quality standards. Oh, and let’s not forget they also want to make it easier and less costly to engage in product recalls.

Laser micromachining with a fiber laser marker: fast, cheap, & flexible

Posted by Barbara Kuntz on Thu, Jul 19, 2012 @ 11:06 AM

You read that correctlylaser micromachining of metals can be faster and cheaper with  fiber laser markers. Their superior beam quality can achieve results similar to traditional machining technologies at less than half the cost! Plus – laser markers can…mark things! Who wouldn’t want one piece of equipment to do several things? And do them so well?

Laser Marking, Laser Etching, & Laser Engraving: ONE Flexible Tool

Posted by Mark Boyle on Thu, May 31, 2012 @ 04:13 PM

We often talk about our laser markers as being "flexible" and "capable of making many different kinds of marks." Sounds great, doesn’t it?  Yes!  But what exactly does that mean?  Well, it means that depending how the laser is controlled, the mark you make may be just a surface effect – a color change - with little or no material removed, or it can remove significant amounts of material, leaving a groove that you can both see and feel.  Below is a list of several types of marks and typical applications for the same.  Note that all of these marks were made with a single (flexible!) fiber laser marker.

Marking methods: When Lasers make sense

Posted by Mark Boyle on Wed, Dec 21, 2011 @ 04:35 PM

Product identification, serialization and tracking are key elements for any production environment. Parts are labeled with all kinds of marks: alpha-numeric serial numbers, date stamps, barcodes, etc..  There are a lot of marking methods available out there including dot-peen, chemical etching, pad printing, ink-jet printing, and laser marking.  As manufacturers of laser markers and laser marking systems, we, of course, believe that there are many good reasons why laser marking makes sense in your manufacturing operation?
