Advanced laser Marking and Engraving

What if you could clearly identify a worn or failed part right back to the batch, the date and even the operator who welded it?

You can.

Carrs has invested in Trumpf’s advanced laser marking technology to complement its laser welding service. Laser marking can be used for applying serial numbers, product labelling and even decoration. In Carrs’ case it is most frequently used for traceability of parts but the technology has much wider application which we would be pleased to explore with you.

Any product you have welded by the company may additionally be engraved in house and indelibly with your part number, batch and serial number as necessary. The beauty of laser marking is that it can be applied equally to a flat or curved surface and the process imparts no thermal or mechanical damage to the product. This is especially important with delicate or electronic components.

Laser marking is also a useful weapon against counterfeiting of parts, as the laser treatment gives the product a signature which is exceedingly difficult if not impossible to reproduce faithfully; a useful deterrent against fraudulent (and potentially dangerous) pattern parts, and loss of revenue and reputation.

Sequenced serial numbering
These drum assemblies for an automotive company are marked by Carrs with an individual serial number and batch number. Any fault or failure may then be traced back to the production date, series and even the operator who worked on the component.

Marking System Capacity
Even large items such as this cylinder block can be accommodated and the system can mark almost anywhere on the component. The operating window is a full 120mm in diameter, allowing ample scope for detailed information and/or graphics to be engraved on both flat and rounded surfaces.

Marking System Flexibility
The system can be programmed to engrave almost any combination of text, serial numbering, and graphics. It is perfect for applying logos, warning signs and instructions permanently. Laser marking helps project the excellence of your product, and also deters copyists.
