Abrisa Technologies has added 2 new laser engraving processes to their value-added, ready-to-install glass fabrication service capabilities. The company now provides in-house:

  • CO2 laser engraving “marking” of select coated and uncoated glass
  • Laser etched graphics, icons and unique identifiers (QR codes and barcodes)

These two methods of laser engraving and etching add to the company’s Total Solution approach of single-point accountability for fabricated specialty glass components.

CO2 Laser Engraving “Marking” of Select Coated & Uncoated Glass: Laser engraving directly onto select coated or uncoated glass creates human readable, non-removeable identification and LOT tracking information for traceability without any added profile or chemistry constraints or concerns. The marking can be done on the edge or face. The alpha-numerics can be 2.8 mm to 7.1 mm in height and can be specified in one of three popular font options.
Laser Etched Graphics: Selective removal of screen-printed ink on glass is ideal when unique identifiers such as machine readable QR codes or barcodes are desired to be incorporated into the face or border graphics of the glass component. The laser etched graphics approach is an effective option to support on-demand display glass graphics and unique identifiers which can vary by platform or part yet still take advantage of a common display glass blank for reduced inventory costs.
