The ability to adjust certain items, protect intellectual property, and include a higher level of safety measures leads to the growth of laser marker for industrial use.
In addition to being used for small businesses that want to add a certain logo or brand to goods inside the house, laser marking offers a way to leave a permanent mark on items in the industrial segment, providing a balance of fake or replica products.
Largest segments in the industrial market for laser marking is the security identification segment where laser marking is ideal for credit cards, identity cards, sensitive documents, and other items that require enhanced safety measures. On ID cards, a multilayer format is used to change the pigment color of the lower layer without affecting the transparent top layer. This action ensures that produces high quality images and text, is resistant to damage, can be tracked and can be adjusted to the needs of the organization and absolutely, the product is safe from fraud.
But this is only the beginning of what laser marking offers to industrial businesses that want to improve their operations. laser marking can provide marking serial numbers, part numbers, time stamps, bar code etching, data matrix codes, brands, and industry-specific codes. laser marking provides very high quality marks that are easy to read by barcode scanners.
As a result, many new industry segments – including robotics, inventory management, banking, security, and the automotive sector – began arriving at laser marking to provide an additional layer of security.
Benefits of laser marking
There are various benefits of using the Epilog Laser system for engraving industrial marks.
First, a fiber nearly all coated metal including stainless steel, steel tools, brass, copper, nickel, and much more.
Second, whether you carve one piece at a time or a table full of components, laser marking can handle it. Depending on the size of the piece and the size of the table, laser marking makes it possible to carve hundreds of pieces at a time. This is especially important when making ID cards or carving bar codes in certain parts that need to be done quickly.
At least, some machines such as the Fusion M2 40 fiber laser engraver from Epilog Laser, can carve even the largest parts and tools up to 40 “x 28” x 12.25 “.
