Product Identification made easy: laser marking
More than Meets the eye
People add information to materials or the outside of products for a reason – it’s important to know! And usually this information is needed in an instant. That’s why it must be clear and legible. It must also stay as it is, otherwise over time an item could be rendered unsafe or even unusable. Whether it’s product information on packaging, an expiration date on a lid, an animal ear tag, a product ID on a cable, or a measurement scale on medical equipment – a marking must be:
- Easy to read
- Durable and still legible after years – capable of withstanding weathering, solvents, and fading over time
- Quick and precise to apply
Another important requirement if a marking is destined to be applied to food packaging or medical equipment is that it is 100% safe and causes no harm to humans.
