Holistic Marking Process: FOBA HELP

Featured Product from FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving (ALLTEC GmbH)


HELP in three stages:
Laser marking with validation prior and right after marking eliminates potential marking errors.
1: Pre-mark verification
  • Part validation: Validates correct part and prevents marking of wrong or defective parts.
  • Pre-mark verification: Confirms that only unmarked parts are being processed.
  • Mark alignment: Aligns the mark relative to the position of the part.

2: Laser marking (product identification)

3: Post-mark verification

  • Mark verification: Validates that marks have been placed correctly (positioning, alignment, size).
  • Optical Character Verification (OCV): Validates that every character marked by the laser matches the expected content.
  • 2D code validation and code reading: Reads the contents of 1D and 2D codes (Datamatrix, e.g. ECC 200, GS1, QR, HIBC) and compares the results to the expected content. A classification of the code into quality classes is possible.

 

Main fields of application:

Ideally suited for the reliable production, especially with regard to the medical device, aerospace, automobile and electronics industries, and the construction of tools, machines and metals.
