Permanently mark barcodes, product specs, certifications, and other important identification information on a range of products with industrial laser marking systems.
Manufacturers of electronic components choose laser marking for its high quality, readable marks and ability to engrave even the smallest components. Laser marking is the key to the necessary product identification and traceability OEMs demand.
Unlike labels, laser marks cannot be removed or altered. This means that counterfeiting and grey market risks, which are typically higher in the electronics industry, are minimized.
Laser marking machines can tackle a wide variety of materials and applications, including electronic components, such as:
Laser marking on electronic components is permanent, creates high-contrast marks, and is perfect for small or inconspicuous marks. Enable item-level traceability that facilitates:
Permanent Alternative to Inkjet & Labeling
Laser marking eliminates consumables to save money. Permanent branding and identification, plus features to increase mark accuracy can help operations avoid the over $1M in losses per year from label printing errors*.

High Quality, Contrast Marks
Poor mark quality interferes with your operation and products. Laser marking systems make clear marks that have contrast without creating electrical interference by exposing the copper.
Make Your Mark in Small Areas
With SMARTmark and LightWriter Lasers, you can mark in small areas on circuit chips or other small components. Add traceability to even your smallest parts with 2D Data Matrix barcodes.
In the commercial and industrial electronics market, the smallest misstep in manufacturing or testing can mean costly repairs, property damage, and even serious injury or death.
Aware that its reputation is on the line with every circuit breaker sold, a multinational electrical-equipment manufacturer has for years channeled substantial resources into fighting gray-market and counterfeit products, often via litigation. Recently the company adopted a preemptive strategy based on making counterfeiting more difficult and illicit supply chains easier to trace.
