Glass & fused quartz
Laser marking and engraving of glass and fused quartz
Compared to conventional mechanical etching/engraving methods, laser marking and engraving have the advantages of high accuracy, extreme flexibility and superior quality. Variety of glass materials are suitable to laser marking and engraving, e.g. soda lime, borosilicate, fused silica, etc.
Traceability of glass and glassware is increasingly important for manufacturers and end users. The label or barcode marked by laser helps people easily track and identify the corresponding data of the glass.
Laser marking technologies can be used to provide marking on both the outside surface and the internal structure of glass. Without damaging the glass surface, marking in glass ensures the traceability of medical devices and glass wafers in electronics industry.
