Ball bearing marking with a laser

Permanent laser marking of ball bearings and roller bearings

label ball bearing

Materials suitable for laser marking

Tremendous forces act on ball and roller bearings. laser marking is ideal for the creation of identification labels as they are extremely resistant to heat and mechanical stress. Even underneath the toughest conditions, laser markings on stainless steel, hardened and coated metals, plastics and ceramics remain permanently readable. they are utilized in production codes, lettering, logos or dimensions.

Materials suitable for laser marking

  • Stainless steel
  • Hardened metals
  • Coated metals
  • Ceramic


Application examples for ball bearings

Typical areas of application for laser marking ball bearings are functional labels (logos and company names for anti-counterfeiting measures) as well as product information (type, size, date of manufacture, etc.).

  • Production codes
  • Lettering
  • Logos
  • Product information
  • Company name
  • Trademark protection, anti-counterfeiting measures

Why should I buy a laser for ball bearing marking?

Laser marking ball and roller bearings in stainless steel, hardened metals, ceramics or plastics with a Trotec laser device not solely permits flexibility within the selection of materials, however additionally the shapes, sizes and processed contents of the bearings. By using the enclosed and intuitive SpeedMark marking software system, you can process variable information and content from external systems. you can choose from normal machines or automated/integrated system solutions.

Function and advantages of laser technology

Flexible, variable data can be marked

  • A wide vary of markings are often created from dynamic content without retooling or tool changes

Advantages of a Trotec laser

  • Intelligent and intuitive SpeedMark marking software system that may merely process data from existing ERP systems and all dynamic contents in codes

Automated custom-made laser machines

  • Fully automated custom-made machines are also attainable

Advantages of a Trotec laser

  • Decades of expertise within the development, design and implementation of customised machines
    Standardized workstations as core parts for customised solutions
    Several solutions for manufacturers of ball bearings have already been created, e.g. as well as a separation system, conveyor, automatic marking process and removal space

Integration into production lines

  • Hardware- and software-sided integration into existing production lines is possible

Advantages of a Trotec laser

  • Years of experience of integrating OEM galvo laser systems into production lines
  • Software that meets all requirements for interfaces with other systems
  • Maintenance-free galvo fiber laser for fastest labels with minimal servicing

Laser markings take seconds and allow fast cycle times

  • High speed labeling thanks to galvo technology

Advantages of a Trotec laser

  • Maintenance-free galvo fiber lasers for fastest labels with minimal servicing

Cost-efficient production

  • Direct marking does not raise costs for consumables
  • No pre- or post-treatments are required
  • Tool wear is eliminated

Advantages of a Trotec laser

  • The SpeedMarker with a maintenance-free fiber laser can be integrated as a laser workstation or into a production line
  • The robust mechanics of Trotec laser systems have been designed for many years of intensive use with minimal servicing

Marking takes seconds and allows greater output

  • High speed marking with variable data is possible, e.g. serial numbers, codes
  • A wide range of different markings can be created without retooling or tool changes

Advantages of a Trotec laser

  • Intelligent and intuitive marking software
  • Fast and highly accurate positioning of components by means of a camera system: SpeedMark Vision - Smart Adjust
  • Integration of contents from ERP files is possible

Permanent marking

  • Laser markings are permanent and are abrasion, heat and acid resistant
  • Especially important for traceability and quality assurance

Advantages of a Trotec laser

  • Product portfolio with matching fiber laser systems for all requirements
  • OEM galvo fiber laser for integration into production lines
  • Custom-built systems according to customer requirements

Perfect laser marking results - finest tools

  • Perfect shapes, including radial texts, can be laser marked with extreme accuracy
  • Marking processes can be combined to clean the material after processing or to provide a higher contrast (e.g. Data Matrix codes)

Advantages of a Trotec laser

  • Ideal optics and optimal beam performance thanks to high-quality components
  • Camera-based component positioning for highest precision and simplicity of use
