Choose laser marking for wood
Marking wood with a laser (laser marking) in an industrial environment has the following main benefits compared to other methods.
Cost-Efficient and Reliable
Precise and permanent
Also, Laser marking technology is highly flexible and suitable for automated industrial environments for its being an almost maintenance-free solution. This means improved marking processes and cost savings.
Prima Power is constantly looking for advanced solutions for manufacturing and production, and integrability between different work stages of the sheet metal working process. Within the last years, the need for marking and identification has increased strongly in the industry.

INDUSTRIAL LASER MARKING REQUIREMENTS IN THE WOOD INDUSTRY
Wood industry products and their marking needs are pretty diverse.
Product markings can include, for Example:
Manufacturer information (logo, etc.)
Manufacturing-related coding (date, time, shift, serial numbers, and batch codes)
Variables such as data matrix, barcodes, and other 2D codes
Material-related data (timber types, stress grade test results, structural ratings)
Product-related information (dimensions and specifications)
Association trademarks such as FSC or PEFC
With laser marking technology we can respond to all the requirements easily.
FINDING THE RIGHT MARKING APPLICATION FOR YOUR PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT
In addition to safety, one needs to take into account the mounting of the device. Do you want to achieve one side or two side markings? How is the mechanical integration done? Is the marking done in a harsh environment? How do you make sure it does not affect marking quality? What is the temperature of the marking environment? Do you need cooling for the devices? As you can see, there are many questions that need to be answered in order for marking applications to function properly. Our team will help you with all of these questions.
One very crucial question from an automation and operation point of view is, how to provide the data for the marking unit in these kinds of production environments? There are many ways to deal with that. For instance, an external control system sends updated marking content to the marking unit using TCP/IP or serial port communication. There are other options available as well. Our team will help you to select the best solution for your needs.
