Permanent, high-contrast marking for medical technology: Jenoptik´s ultrafast lasers

Accurate, permanent product marking is especially important in clinical operations and ensures the unique identification and traceability in line with the Unique Device Identification Standard (UDI). Powerful ultra-short pulse lasers such as Jenoptik´s JenLas® pico 16 have proven themselves to be effective tools for these kinds of marking processes. Using "Black Marking" technology, permanent and high-contrast marking such as serial numbers and bar codes are applied with great precision and reliability, for example on surgical instruments and implants. This marking is highly resistant to corrosion, extremely hard-wearing and remains legible permanently, even after repeated sterilisation processes. It also avoids undesirable thermal side effects. At the same time, your results will have maximum contrast and the best quality possible – without damaging the surface.

The picosecond laser JenLas® pico 16 is not only suitable for medical technology, but also for cutting or ablating metals and non-metals with precision in an industrial setting. It avoids the need to post-process materials.
