Automotive Industry Laser Systems

Manufacturers of components for the automotive sector mark their products to identify them, to add instructions and to enable tracking and traceability. Increasingly a 2D code is required to meet the AIMDPM-1-2006 (automotive).

Lasers are used because of their ability to mark metals and a range of plastic substrates.

They are an attractive alternative to other technologies (dot pinning, scribing, etching and micro-percussion) because they are digital, clean, reliable and low cost.
