Line and 2D codes, like serial numbers, are used in a wide range of industries. The automotive, medical technology and electronics industries use these markings for product and part traceability. The codes, mostly data matrix code or barcode, contain information regarding the parts properties, production data, batch numbers, and much more. These component markings must be simple to read, including electronically, and have lasting durability. Here, laser marking proves to be a flexible and comprehensive tool for a wide variety of materials, shapes, and sizes, as well as the processing of dynamic and developing data. This technique allows for parts to be laser-marked at the highest speed with absolute precision, and minimal wear.
