FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving (ALLTEC GmbH), Selmsdorf
FOBA's V.0020-uv marking laser achieves high-contrast marks on sensitive materials using
an ultraviolet wavelength. Because the material's surface is photo-chemically altered, very
little heat is transferred to the material and it remains virtually undamaged and unchanged.
Products made from highly sensitive or unique materials such as aircraft cables, translucent
or colored tubes for various industries, medical plastics for invasive applications, flameresistant
plastics for electronic housings and even glass can be marked safely with high
resolution and contrast.
Through the photo-chemical effect, the FOBA V.0020-uv creates a contrasting and permanent
color change on the surface of the processed product instead of disrupting or displacing the
material allowing the product itself to remain undamaged. Laser marks that are resistant to
typical sterilization processes can now be achieved on medical devices, such as catheters or
insulin pumps, and filigree and brilliant laser marks can be applied on glass without breakage.
With the V.0020-uv, even silicones or white polyamides can now be laser marked.
Marking highly sensitive and previously un-markable materials without damage makes
FOBA's UV laser marker an industry pioneer.
