Laser marking is widely used for small-, medium- and large-scale part marking, identification and traceability in a rapid, flexible process. Patterns include texts, 2D barcodes/data matrices, logos, bitmaps or any geometric shape. Spectra-Physics extensive portfolio of Q-Switched, MOPA and CW lasers in IR, green and UV cover a broad range of marking requirements. Combined with compact design and maintenance-free operation, these diverse capabilities make Spectra-Physics’ fiber and DPSS lasers highly attractive for laser marking applications.
Laser engraving provides significant advantages in terms of engraving flexibility, depth, surface finishing and “marking” size. These are some of the key parameters that distinguish laser engraving from alternative engraving or marking technologies. With Spectra-Physics’ VGEN-QS fiber lasers, high-quality and speed engraving can be achieved for various materials – bare and coated metal, ceramics, glass and polymers – and in a broad range of industries such as jewelry, fine art/printing modeling (2D and cylinder), electronics, automotive, and others.
