If new components or prototype groups are developed, they are often not immediately produced from the original materials, but produced in a different scale or from other materials, such as plastic or wood. These first models show, in the concept phase, whether the corresponding prototype group fulfills the functionality. More and more, flatbed lasers with CO2 lasers are being used to cut the prototype components from the material. The advantage is that the marking of individual parts and the cutting can be implemented in a single pass. Thus, prototypes and individual parts can be marked with plain text or codes, in order to be able to manage them and other possible variants and easily distinguish between them.
Even the tools used for production can be neatly and clearly marked. Here, it is insignificant which material needs to be marked, because the Speedy Flexx series can mark metals and organic materials.
