The client is a medical device manufacturer looking to integrate a marking system into its high-speed production line, while producing a mark that does not damage the product’s corrosion protection.
Operation of the machine:
A rotating plate loader combined with a cobot enables the cycle time of less than 60s required by the client to be achieved.
SIC MARKING provided the client with the laser marking station for the pacemaker with high-end laser marking equipment.
The aim is to perform high-contrast marking, while respecting the surface finish of the pacemaker’s titanium alloy housing.
This marking, known as annealing, enables high-contrast black marking to be produced on the grey titanium alloy surface without damaging or weakening the material.
As a result, corrosion protection is preserved for the product’s future life.
