Laser Marking - Animal Identification Tags
The future of the livestock industry has headed toward global livestock identification on all types of livestock to help with disease and herd origin tracking. With proper animal ID tags it makes it easier to track and eliminate any potential problems helping improve consumer confidence. Animal identification tags are made out of plastic or metal making them ideal for laser marking to create a permanent, legible mark.
Traditional methods used for marking plastics have been with ink printing to include pad printing, ink jet printing and stamping. These methods are common practice; however, they do present some serious disadvantages such as flexibility and durability of the mark as well as some negative environmental effects.
The most effective approach to marking on plastics is with a fiber laser. Laser Photonics' laser marking systems have performed with consistent precision and quality for over 10 years. They are ideal for mass production, especially in high throughput lines, offering unmatched flexibility and are safer for the environment. The marking systems are suitable for Computer Integrated Manufacturing and Just In Time production, drastically reducing downtime resulting in higher MTBF, 100,000 hours, and also lowering operating and maintenance costs.
