Laser Marking Stainless Steel Medical Devices
Save labor costs and ensure stable, consistent machine output by selecting the right laser source for material and surface finish
Medical tools and devices must be mechanically strong, resist corrosion, and allow repeated sterilization, and not cause reaction inside the body. To meet government regulations, these parts also require laser marking for identification, tracking, and traceability.
Download this whitepaper to learn how to make passivation-resistant and anti-corrosion unique device identification (UDI) marks on stainless steel, including:
- selecting the right laser source (Nanosecond fiber laser, Nanosecond UV laser, Picosecond IR laser)
- using a uniform heat source
- controlling the rate of heating and cooling
- and more.
