Laser coding and marking technology has been in existence for
nearly 50 years. In this time, improvements in engineering have
produced diverse laser marking systems for different applications.
This White Paper explains the technology behind laser marking
systems and the options available to Production Managers.
Through a better understanding, readers will be able to make an
informed choice when it comes to selecting the right laser marking
system for their application.
The word ‘laser’ has become so much a part of
our everyday vocabulary that we tend to forget it
is an acronym derived from the rather long-winded
description Light Amplification by Stimulated
Emission of Radiation.
Lasers are often thought of as a new technology
but have in fact been in existence longer than
many people realise. The theory of lasers was
suggested in 1957 and the first laser was built in
1960. Long before that, at the turn of the century,
Einstein produced equations which describe the
main physical mechanism by which laser action
occurs, although he didn’t realise its potential at
