Laser marking is a process enabling manufacturer to record label or data on a moving part in time measured in milliseconds. This, in turn, can equate to process savings of few seconds per part, which accumulates really quickly in high volume and speed processes. Not only can marking be done faster, but the amount of information, thanks to technological advancements, increases every year. Even with fast laser processes, some time is wasted in static application, so the only truly delay eliminating solution is marking on the fly.
- Laser marking technology is critical for any manufacturer that wants to optimize each process and increase their speed and volume.
- Investment in improved fixed factory automation technologies is expected to reach $120 billion during 2022.
- Some of the challenges of the laser marking technology are making sure the mark is placed correctly and it must meet quality standards.
“Factory automation has exploded over the last few years as Industry 4.0 digitization initiatives minimize production cost and manufacturing time.”
