Laser Marking Process Resists Shot Blasting

Laserax’s laser marking process has enabled die casters to identify parts throughout the supply chain.

Laserax’s laser marking process has enabled die casters to identify parts right out of the die, according to the company. The process features tracking codes that resist post-process treatments, including shot blasting. Requirements by automotive manufacturers push die casters towards a traceability system from the extraction of the casting from the die throughout the supply chain.

The process is available in three systems: open air system, rotary table workstation or rotary table system with a robot included. All systems include a safety enclosure, the laser, a HMI (human-machine interface) and an in-house designed vortex system.
