Contactless laser marking enables reliable labelling in production without time-consuming and costly interruptions. No scratching of tools or components, no smudged markings. Milling parts are marked with serial and batch numbers, cast parts are engraved with data matrix codes or injection-moulded parts are provided with production dates and serial numbers.
Laser marking is a permanent and unforgeable marking of products for traceability over their entire life cycle. Laser technology is 10 times more cost-effective than comparable technologies such as labelling.
Which laser is needed for traceability in laser manufacturing?
Due to the simple laser marking of dynamic data, SpeedMarker laser marking machines are the right choice for mechanical engineering, the electronics industry and contract engravers. Individual components as well as large batches can be marked with a class 2 galvo laser system for full traceability, brand communication or with functional markings.
“The quality of Trotec machines coupled with their support network made us fully confident in our purchase. With the two machines we now have greater scope for production and prototyping, saving us both time and money in outsourcing.”
“We use the SpeedMarker 700 to mark the brand and logo on our motors, along with all its specifications and certifications. The system is fully integrated with our ERP, once we scan the work order all the info is automatically pulled. Trotec offers impeccable support especially in the early stages of programming and calibration. The SpeedMarker 700 offers the highest quality of marking on stainless steel and mild steel units.”
“We have previous experience with other laser system manufacturers in production, e.g. for marking housings or PCBs. However, they don’t offer a suitable solution for our requirements. In contrast, Trotec Laser was able to provide us with an optimal production solution using the SP1500 large-format laser machine.”
