Laser Coding & Marking

laser marking tablet blister packs

CO2, YAG and Diode lasers are commonly used to code and mark components or products which are manufactured from a variety of materials. Hazardous fumes and dust are produced when the substrate, lacquer, paint or coating is marked or cut. Purex systems not only help ensure compliance with International Health and Safety Law but also deliver actual cost savings to the production process.

Materials lased include: -

  • Plastics (PVC & PET etc.)
  • Ceramics
  • Metals
  • Paper & Cardboard
  • Foil
  • Enamel
  • Wood
  • Glass
  • Rubber

Key:

The fume extractor is suitable for this application Normal selection.
The fume extractor is a suitable option for this application Select if extra filter capacity is required and/or additional airflow is required to extract from multiple lasers or heavy duty applications.
The fume extractor is a suitable option for this application May also be considered.
The fume extractor is not suitable for this application  Unit not usually specified for application.
This fume extractor should be used when lasing PVC For lasing onto PVC.

Notes:

  1. The selection is based on the use of standard connection kit.
  2. The 800i 3 tier unit is designed for use where the application has low dust, but high gas emissions. The 2 tier is designed for applications producing high dust emissions.
  3. A poor enclosure is where less than 4 sides of the process are enclosed.
