Medical Part Marking - Laser Marking a Barcode
This application is a barcode and human readable text on 0.128” diameter stainless steel rod. The white mark is an “ablation” type mark and the black mark is a “stain” mark. The stain marked barcode has a laser engraved rectangle around it to enhance the readability of the barcode. These are only test parts. The final product will be part of a medical device system.
These parts were marked using a 50 watt Langolier with a 254mm lens. A 20 watt Langolier would probably have worked just fine for this laser marking application.
The 20 Watt Langolier Open Table design is meant to laser etch both large and small parts. This open design is ideal for consumer goods manufacturers or after market shops that customize products - this laser marking system allows you to laser mark just about anything.
A Jimani Langolier laser marking system is a turn key system and flexible tool for space challenged manufacturing and laser marking job shop environments. The Open Table Langolier is designed to be a compact, stand alone laser marking station flexible enough to handle one off samples and mid-range production runs.
