Laser marking of medical devices

Published on: 04/01/2016

With Trotec laser systems, medical device manufacutrers can fulfill all UDI requirements regarding product labelling and traceability. This laser marking process including back reading of the UDI code and more laser solutions for medical device manufacturers will be presented at Medtec Europe 2016 from April 12th to April 14th.

Ready for UDI

At Medtec Europe 2016 at our booth 7B01 in hall 7, we will show a simple, realistic example how medical device manufacturers can meet the regulations of UDI by laser marking surgical tools or medical instruments made of many different materials (like stainless steel, titanium etc.): After importing the product information with a barcode scanner, the laser system marks the material with text and a datamatrix code. The automated process enables a back reading and evaluation of the UDI code, which will be reported to a file that can correspond with external systems (such as SAP for example).

Laser Marking with SpeedMark Vision – Smart Adjust

Our SpeedMarker laser workstations are the ideal tools for marking medical devices. With our SpeedMark marking software, the operator can get dynamic data from external ERP systems (such as SAP) and mark (as a datamatrix code) directly on the products.

For exact positioning of the marking, we offer SpeedMark Vision – Smart Adjust. The user can easily position the text with "drag & drop" directly on the work piece.
