Laser Marking in the Medical Industry

Marking Medical Instruments and Surgical Implants

Mark ceramic, metal, plastic, and many other materials in medical technology.

Applications overview

Laser Marking is Ideal for Medical Technology
The FDA requires the medical industry to mark surgical equipment, implants, medical utensils, and hearing devices with barcodes or serial numbers for tracing purposes. In order to comply with strict government requirements and to protect your patients, achieving a 
precise, permanent, and indelible mark is indispensable. By incorporating a Trotec Laser marking system into your identification process, meeting FDA requirements and achieving clean readable marks is as easy as a click of a button, every time.

Permanent and Resistant Identification
Marking with a laser offers durable and resistant identification by creating color change without changing the surface structure of the material. Since the surface of the material is never breached, every 
mark is free from burrs where germs could accumulate. This ensures the sterility of your medical instruments is never jeopardized.
