Cutting, welding, deposition welding, 3D printing ... these cool kids of laser material processing hog the limelight, so it is easy to overlook the marking laser standing in the background. And yet it has transformed the marking of objects forever.
RGB laser light creates brilliant color images sealed inside layers of plastic. Gemalto is using this technology to produce the world’s most secure personal identity cards for Cameroon.
perma-tec marks plastic housings by laser. A new software module saves a lot of time – especially with small batches.
High quality, no tool wearing, significant advantages in terms of productivity and costs – these are only a few reasons to mark metal with the laser. Find out more about applications and processes.
“Power of Choice” is the slogan that best describes the numerous new laser beam sources for material processing TRUMPF will be presenting at the LASER World of Photonics 2013.
Microchips are getting ever faster and smaller, driving mechanical fabrication methods to the edge. Now the laser is taking over.
Marking ever more information onto an ever smaller space on a microchip is something only lasers can do. Plus, they can be integrated into the quality control process.
Traceability, individualisation and design: Laser marking has established a permanent place in industry as a reliable tool for marking applications.
For all the usefulness of coatings, they can be an impediment when welding. Which is where the cleaning power of short-pulse lasers comes in.
So you think only heads of state get to have their face on coins? Think again! With marking lasers, a coin can feature anyone at all.
