Traceability

Permanent, contactless and direct laser marking for digital production and manufacturing. With costs that are 10 times lower.

How laser marking
is used for product traceability.

Contactless laser marking enables reliable labeling 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-molded parts are provided with production dates and serial numbers.

Laser marking is a permanent and unforgeable marking of products for traceability over the entire product life cycle. Laser technology is 10 times more cost-effective than comparable technologies (e.g. labeling).

Why a Trotec laser machine makes sense for traceability. A comparison of technologies.

What can be marked.

How to save money with laser marking.

If laser technology is used for traceability in manufacturing, costs can be reduced immensely. These examples compare laser marking with labeling and needle embossing and show the savings per marking or over the investment period. Good to know: The laser costs include the investment costs and the running costs.

Which laser is needed for traceability in laser manufacturing.

Due to the simple laser marking of dynamic data, the SpeedMarker laser marking machines are exactly the right choice for mechanical engineering, the electronics industry and contract engravers. Individual components as well as large batches can be marked with a galvo laser system of laser class 2 for full traceability, brand communication or with functional markings.

What our customers say.

“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.”

David Hoskins

Manufacturing Engineer - Abb Ltd.

“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.”

George Barbuc

Project Manager - Van der Graaf

“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.”
