‘Annealing’ on stainless steel bearing

Metal parts, such as bearings, also need to be marked for identification with their product reference, brand or lot number for later traceability. Metal requires a marking and coding that does not damage the surface and with a high marking contrast in order to read the data properly.

For this purpose, and in general for the marking of metallic materials such as stainless steel, we use a fibre laser such as the SPA F-9020, which by means of annealing – or changing the metal’s colour by increasing its temperature – we can obtain a permanent black marking of great legibility and without damaging the surface.

What is traceability?

According to the AECOC Food Safety Committee, traceability “is the set of those pre-established and self-sufficient procedures that mean that the history, location and distribution of a product or batch of products can be tracked at any given time along the supply chain, through the use of certain tools.”

Many of us have in our minds different cases of contaminated food products that have reached the final consumer and have generated scandals in the defence of both human and animal health. Food safety is the most important thing that must be provided to the consumer, since factors such as taste, smell or colour can be considered to be objective, but safety can never be negotiable.

Laser marking on a wet eggshell

N&N is a production and commercialitzation company which produces pasteurized eggs. Their challenge to Macsa ID was to implant a marking system capable of accomplish three goals:

· Print on a high speed application its brand logotype on a fragile and delicated eggshell.
· Use an automatic system to reduce the time dedicated to marking and the number of necessary employees.
· Get a high quality printing, clear-cut and accurate results on a still wet eggshell.

4th to 10th May at Messe Düsseldorf.
