There are many benefits to laser marking: accuracy, clarity and, above all, precision. As the primary function of any marking is legibility and clarity, using laser marking machines to mark medical devices is just good sense. Laser marking machines not only produce clear and legible markings, but they also prevent against any blurring, blotting, foaming, charring, melting, or color change that can obscure the readability of the markings. Because laser marking machines do not use ink or rely on external tool bits, they create precise and clear markings that can withstand changing environmental conditions and will not wear out with time.
Last a Lifetime
Medical equipment is not only very expensive, it is also very important – sometimes, it’s a matter of life and death. That’s why all medical devices, big or small, need to be marked to prevent against any loss or misplacement. In an emergency, missing – or misidentified – medical devices can mean the difference between life and death.
At HeatSign, our laser marking machines can produce any type and size of character, design or letter with surgical precision, including serial numbers, graphics, logos, barcode designs, date and time, etc. In addition, because laser marking is the most effective way to mark medical devices – it’s precise, accurate and highly durable – it’s also the most visually pleasing. Laser marking medical devices will ensure the marks will not fade, lighten, or blur over time. This is especially crucial in the event that high- priced medical equipment needs to resold, as clients look for marks that are pristine and uncompromised during the lifecycle of the product. With laser marking, you’ll be able to make marks that will last – and maybe even save – a lifetime.
Easy to Use
Our laser marking machines are designed with the user in mind. That means we’ve gone to great lengths to manufacture a machine that not only produces the finest high-quality marks and engravings, but is also easy to handle and operate. Our machines are light-weight and highly maneuverable, and will not cause the user any discomfort, even for prolonged periods of use. Because marking medical devices demands a high level of attention and focus, as well as a great deal of time, our machines are designed to ensure only the highest standards of user comfort and ease of operation. Indeed, another effective use of laser marking for medical instruments is that it can actually cut down on the time that needs to be spent marking medical devices. Laser technology is not just precise, it’s also quick.
From the stethoscope to the MRI scanner, scissors, tweezers etc…all medical devices and tools need to be marked to ensure accessibility, accountability and transparency. Keeping track of medical devices is an important part of ensuring a medical practice operates smoothly and without unnecessary complications; after all, when it comes to the medical field, mistakes can be fatal. The effective uses of laser marking for medical devices are so many – accuracy, longevity, precision, legibility and speed – that using any other means of marking just doesn’t make sense.
