Marking laser systems in high-speed manufacturing lines create serial content such as shelf life or production data. Other marking contents with a purpose beyond classic product identification are logos. In any case the high speed of the laser system is always a prerequisite for integrating it into production.Read More

The FOBA Y.0200-xs fiber laser marking system can be integrated into any production line thanks to the smallest marking head available on the market. Field-tested, Titus™ achieves top marking results, as demonstrated by application testing on colored plastic profiles.Read More
Glass is best marked with UV or CO2 laser systems. The energy input can be kept low to minimize the effect of microcracking.
Both marking methods create easily readable and resistant characters by means of engraving or colour change, which are optically different on closer inspection. While the UV laser marks are even, finely rasterized areas, the resolution of the CO2 marking appears in coarser pixels.Read More
Titanium is a high-quality material that is used in (dental) medical technology for implants, in the automotive sector for screws or valves, and for many other applications. It is usually marked in black by laser annealing, while colored laser markings are possible but less durable.Read More
In order to increase patient safety, reusable medical parts must be provided with a UDI code (UDI – Unique Device Identification) which remains permanently legible even with heavy use and frequent cleaning. But also beyond legal requirements, manufacturers and users employ part markings for a reliable traceability. That’s why UDI codes or other labels can be found on almost all instruments, devices and accessories in medical technology.Read More
Laser marking is not only used to label cosmetic glass containers, aluminum tubes or plastic bottles with serial numbers or expiry dates. Marks, which then have more decorative than informative purposes, can also be applied directly on colored make-up paint.Read More
Aluminum is often anodized, i.e. provided with a ceramic-like oxide layer to protect the material from abrasion or natural oxidation. The layer also has a decorative character, since it can be anodized in many colors.
CO2 or fiber lasers are suitable for labeling the anodized surface. Classically, the CO2 marking laser creates a bright lettering (by bleaching), while fiber laser systems mark dark as well as bright. In both cases, the effect brought about by the laser is a color change.Read More
Small defects in a ball bearing are often difficult to detect, e.g. if single rollers are missing , wrongly mounted, or if a component is of a different size. If the undesired part is then labelled with a laser marker, this causes unnecessary and relatively high costs. FOBA’s camera-based marking solution offers an economical solution that integrates part detection, marking and validation of the marked characters in a single, safe process.Read More
