We believe that this customer was able to offer the smallest code of this type across his competitors. Thermo Fisher Scientific – UK

Laser marking 2D matrix code on acrylic sheets uses a laser receptive material onto which the 2D code and its human readable information is processed using laser marking. In order to maintain the smallest process area, the human readable was split onto either side of the code, as seen in the picture. The customer then punches out the code into an end cap which is ultrasonically welded onto the end of the vial.

We were able to use an Nd:YAG laser process in a single mode set up, which allows us to create very small matrix codes. The codes shown are 10 character codes at 2.25 mm square. The part also has human readable characters.

Laser Marking 2D Matrix Code On Acrylic

The acrylic material has been designed to be laser receptive. The multi layer material, exposes the inner layer white colour once the upper layer is removed using the laser marking process.

Laser Marking Anodised Aluminium

Laser Marking Anodised Aluminium – Electrical Symbols

Anodising has become a dominant form of finishing for aluminium. This is largely due to its cost effectiveness, availability and suitability, across a whole host of applications and industrial sectors. Laser marking anodised aluminium, has also become an accepted process across these industrial sectors. As like with our customer HGL Dynamics

Product Branding By Laser Marking Anodised Aluminium

Product branding by laser marking anodised Aluminium

A good example of product branding by laser marking anodised aluminium is customer Dynamic Audio. It is used in high end audio accessories in the form of cable tidies.  The aluminium is highly polished, prior to anodising, in order to achieve the high gloss finish on the part.

The laser process, delivers small pulses of energy to the component surface. These pulses have enough energy to vaporise the surface of…
