The flexibility, convenience, and costs of laser marking, engraving, or etching means it is used in almost every industry. The variety of materials suited to the use of laser technology has seen it embraced by businesses and industries across the globe to the extent few organisations could function without its use on a daily basis.
One of the major developments in the use of laser marking has been to improve the traceability of items. Incorporating barcodes, QR codes, serial and batch numbers, and other details allows the seamless tracking of items from their point of manufacture to the end user or application. International boundaries become insignificant, and a quick scan of the code delivers an instant and detailed account of where that particular item has travelled. The impact on supply chain efficiencies has been immeasurable.
In many instances the need for laser marking is stipulated by law, where an item must be permanently marked with specific information related to its origin, operation, or quality to allow its use. One reason for this is to preserve standards in safety, where component and sub assembly parts must adhere to strict levels of manufacture to be used in certain industries.
The food and hospitality industry uses laser technology to create bespoke signage, menus and other promotional tools to help businesses differentiate themselves.
Point of sale manufacturers are frequent users of laser technology for the creation of innovative in-store displays to draw attention to specific products or services.
Permanent marking is required on small arms and ammunition to ensure full traceability and adherence to legal statutes, as well as to comply with compulsory registration of ownership.
Organisations in both the public and private sectors are increasingly engaging laser technology for creating ID cards and smart cards to combat fraud.
