Custom Application Case History:

Custom SCHMIDT Laser Marking System

A manufacturer of aircraft components was looking for a part marking solution that would reduce their marking cycle time, improve operator safety and achieve reliable 2d part marking traceability of their parts. The company previously relied on manual marking methods that included air pencil engraving, electrochemical marking and stamping with permanent inks. SCHMIDT manufactured a custom Microlase laser marking system complete with an enclosure that included a rotary table, indexing fixtures and a tilting head for multiple parts that needed to be marked at unusual angles.
