We serialize the World
In the digital world all things need clearly to be identified, and with the help of laser radiation, plastics and powder-coated surfaces can be marked – fast, accurately, durably, and with razor-sharp precision. No more wasted time looking for the right cable in a pile, an unreadable expiration date, or blurred text on a product package – these situations can be avoided by using laser marking technology. Practical applications include serial numbers on electronic components, barcodes on animal ear tags, best-before dates on food packaging, and scales on medical devices. Iriotec® 8000 products fulfill the highest requirements placed on high-tech laser applications.
Invisibly incorporated into the polymer, laser additives of the Iriotec ® 8000 series unfold their special properties under laser influence: they turn laser radiation into color and create “light that writes”.
