PCB Marking

Safe, non-contact etching for printed circuit boards

PCB marking—including etching codes, numbers and logos onto circuit boards—is necessary for inventory control and tracking. Many conventional methods, however, are time consuming and require additional consumables and cleaning processes.

Our fully automated PCB laser marking systems overcome these challenges. For one, they make no direct contact with the circuits, substrate and other sensitive components. They also eliminate extra processes and easily integrate with existing SMT lines.

Run our laser systems as reliable, free-standing machines, or add them to your automated manufacturing line to enable real-time data tracking. We can also integrate them into parts handling systems, including stackers and flippers.
