Type plates are used in many different fields – in medical technology, engineering and the automotive industry. They are used both for functional inscriptions and for the legal-mandated labelling of systems and products. Modern laser machines are particularly suitable for marking product information on type plates. You can use them to mark standardised sizes and exotic shapes – regardless of whether they’re made from aluminium, plexiglass or metal. The precise laser markers from JustLaser can be used to engrave and mark complex structures and to make the smallest marks. See for yourself!
The benefits of a JustLaser Laser Marker are obvious when it comes to marking product information on type plates: they will win you over with their outstanding marking quality and their broad range of possible applications. You can furnish plates with a durable, high-contrast and abrasion-resistant inscription which is resistant to alcohol, chemicals, heat, the cold and wear and tear.
Laser marking represents the fastest, most efficient and cheapest marking method, especially in industries where marking components and systems for the purposes of identification and traceability has become a legal obligation. The modern laser markers from JustLaser are cost-effective for both individual production and for small batches. The following areas of application enjoy great popularity:
Modernlaser technology is particularly suitable for furnishing type plates made from a variety of materials with permanent labels:
A laser marker is used to permanently mark materials when marking product information on type plates. There are a variety of procedures.
Laser engraving is frequently used for industrial labelling. In this process, the material is heated by a laser beam to the point that the surface of the material is vaporised or burned, creating an abrasion-resistant engraving.
If the colour of a metal changes as the result of exposure to heat, it can be marked using the annealing marking method. In this process, the laser causes the colour to change on the surface of a material; different temperatures result in different colour changes. As this process leaves the surface fully intact, the process is frequently used for medical technology products.
Anodised and painted layers are particularly effective at absorbing laser light, meaning they can be vaporised well with it. This method also produces permanent marks.
Both fibre lasers and CO2 lasers can be used for marking product information on type plates, depending on the material from which they are made. Blank and coated metals are the easiest to mark with a fibre laser. In principle, any material can be processed using a CO2 laser. However, metal needs to be pre-treated with a laser marking agent as blank surfaces reflect the CO2 laser beam too much.
Another benefit is that the fibre lasers and CO2 lasers from JustLaser aren’t just used for marking your type plates; they can also be used for cutting a variety of materials.
The high-precision JustLaser laser technology is first choice when marking product information on type plates – whether they’re made from metal, plastic or laminate! They win people over with a number of benefits:
