3D-MIR: Advanced Simplicity for Drastic Cost Reduction
Jens Schou Christensen, Stevanato Group

Learn how designers at Stevanato Group re-invented the laser mirror chamber in a system for high-speed marking of the scale drum used in a medical device. This reduced CAPEX by 50% and OPEX by 75% for the manufacturer. Also, see how ‘advanced simplicity’ reduces the investment barrier for lasers as compared to other marking technologies.

Laser marking is commonly used in industrial production to add serial codes, bar codes and logos to manufactured goods. Laser marking, however, can also add graphical or textual features to products. This often requires marking large and curved surfaces. Accurate synchronization of laser process and axis motion and overall marking precision are crucial for producing convincing marking results. 3D marking, larger area (step-and-repeat) marking and marking with cooperating lasers are examples for advanced marking technologies and are easy to use and to integrate into the production process.
