Part traceability is an increasingly common requirement not only for safety critical applications, but also for an ever‐increasing number of parts and applications across various industries. Robust and permanent identification of industrial parts is becoming a crucial element of manufacturing processes. Industrial laser direct part marking on metal or on plastic parts provides many advantages over conventional labels, inkjet or dot peen marking. Advantages include the elimination of consumables, reduction of cycle time, process repeatability and robust etching.
