As one of the leading international suppliers of laser marking systems with long-term expertise especially in the field of medical device UDI direct part labeling, FOBA attends the world’s largest medical design and manufacturing event to present best practices to meet the latest requirements of UDI parts marking. FOBA sees itself not only as a supplier of advanced technical solutions but also offers its customers comprehensive consulting and expertise regarding the implementation of UDI according to the latest legal requirements.
In a workshop on Thursday, February 13, 2020 (9:00 to 10:30 AM, room 201D) FOBA’s Business Manager Software & Vision Faycal Benayad-Cherif Ph.D will be one of three expert speakers. Manufacturers who join the workshop will benefit from tips and tools and learn more about the current laser marking technology which helps to meet the actual international UDI parts marking regulations.
“Our US sales team will take the opportunity to demonstrate laser marking on a M2000 laser marking workstation live at the booth”, says Letizia Caselle, Regional Sales Manager Americas. “FOBA’s customers can rely on an integrated marking solution to make their medical devices compliant with the UDI-requirements according not only to the FDA but also to the new European MDR.”
Most FDA-deadlines for the direct part UDI marking of medical devices that are used more than once and intended to be reprocessed before each use have already passed. However, the implementation of a reliable laser marking system becomes even more important for medical manufacturers as the European Medical Device Regulation (MDR) will come into effect on May 26, 2020.
FOBA’s laser marking solutions enable precise marking results and maximum operating efficiency. Laser marks can be applied on any kind of medical products like stainless steel surgical instruments, titanium implants or plastic single use items. The optionally integrated camera is situated directly in the laser head, which enables automated part detection. The innovative marking feature FOBA Mosaic can make part fixtures obsolete. A three-step marking process includes not only a precise mark alignment, but also the pre- and post-marking validation of parts and marking results.
While most medical devices get marked at the very end of the manufacturing process using a stand-alone laser marking workstation, some production lines have a laser marking systems integrated. FOBA’s latest innovation Titus™ responds to the needs of integrators who look for a highly flexible and easy to install unit. The unique scanning head comes with the laser system Y.0200-xs / Y.0300-xs and is incomparably small and equipped with additional clamp’n go laser head brackets, an up to ten meters umbilical and two possible (0 or 90 degrees) beam orientations, so that it fits in even the tightest production environments.
