Laser marking in medical device production: FOBA participates in trade show manufacturing line at MedtecLIVE
FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving is taking part in a new presentation format at "MedtecLIVE with T4M" (Stuttgart, May 3 - 5, 2022). For the first time in this form, several partner companies will set up a production line in the exhibition hall. FOBA will demonstrate laser direct marking as part of the value chain of a medical product.
Representing the fifth of a total of seven steps in the production line, FOBA with its M-Series M2000-P laser marking workstation provides the UDI-compliant marking of the trade fair sample. After the three-stage manufacturing, then cleaning, marking and passivation of the component, visitors finally obtain a machine-packaged product to take away.
"This trade show concept is a novelty, not only at the MedtecLIVE with T4M, but also for FOBA and the other participants," says Christian Söhner. "We want to bring individual machine processing steps into a context that is both vivid and tangible, and this is best achieved in presence at a trade show,” adds FOBA's Global Vertical Manager Medical. As a member of the trade fair advisory board, he first came up with the idea for the production line.
Using the example of a metal instrument, each of the seven participating companies represents one of the classic steps in the manufacture of a medical product: from the raw material to the packaged item ready for sale. "Since laser marking is one of the last processing steps, a high reliability of the marking system is crucial to prevent costly incorrect markings," emphasizes Christian Söhner. This could be securely provided by FOBA's camera-based marking systems with upstream and downstream optical inspection and high-precision automated marking alignment.
With a team of application specialists as well as sales consultants, FOBA will also be at trade show booth 10-208. Visitors can learn more about the automated marking alignment capabilities of FOBA's marking software and receive specific application advice. Individual appointments, either for a demonstration on the production line or at the FOBA booth, can be requested at email@example.com
