In this paper, first released for TMS 2017 Meeting and Exhibition, the authors explain how Laserax’s LXQ 3D Vision industrial laser marker successfully solves the problem of part positioning and profile acquisition of complex 3D shapes.
Direct part marking is a way to trace parts throughout the whole process of production and after in the use phase of the product. This practice is becoming a necessity in the die casting industry – as it is in many others. There are some challenges associated with the environment and the processes undergone by die castings. This includes short cycle time, surfaces that are not (perfectly) flat, high temperature, abrasive post-treatment. Laserax has developed solutions to these issues.
This guide will help you understand how to use barcodes for traceability. You will also find related tips for production lines.
