The laser is an important tool in the medical industry. Medical products and devices must meet traceability requirements referred to as UDI or "Unique Device Identification" requirements, which are based on ISO standards. To meet the requirement, standard compliant codes must be specified on medical products to ensure traceability. This means that by scanning the code, you can obtain information such as the manufacturer's name, item reference or expiration date. This allows error-free documentation and helps ensure patient safety.
Laser markings are an ideal solution because they are resistant to acids, cleaners or bodily fluids. In addition, the surface structure remains unchanged, and depending on the labeling process, surgical instruments can be kept clean and sterile more easily. Even if implants remain inside the body for a long time, no materials from the label can detach themselves and harm the patient.
