Laser Marking in the Medical Industry
laser marking system has developed comprehensive solutions for then marking and traceability of implants, instruments, and medical devices.Thanks to its excellent qualities, like precision and flexibility, the laser has become a production tool of first choice in medical technology.
Why laser marking can be widely used in the medical industry ?
Laser marking by modifying the material color, annealing on metal, carbonization or foaming in polymers – provide corrosion-free marking without creating burrs or debris or inserting any filler materials.
There are almost no technical limits to the marking outline and content, whether it is marking implants, medical devices or surgical instruments with data matrix codes to ensure traceability. Even micro markings with character heights of some 10 µm are possible. Individualization is easy due to the flexible computer control of the complete process, and on-the-fly marking can be carried out even on fast-moving workpieces.
