Customer Application Note "Centex Machining"

The marking of cylindrical parts like bone drills can be challenging. FOBA's laser marking system with rotary unit helped an American OEM manufacturer to reduce marking time by 15 hours.

Medical device contract manufacturer Centex Machinig of Round Rock, Texas, delivers a variety of products ranging from orthopedic implants to surgical instruments with the highest quality, cost efficiency and speed. Most products are laser marked - a particular challenge with cylindrical parts. To meet increasing customer demands, Centex Machining chose a FOBA M3000-P marking station and was able to significantly reduce marking time.

The circumferential marking of round parts, some of which have very small diameters, is one of the most demanding tasks in laser marking. Because more and more medical products are being directly marked in uncompromising quality and for clear traceability and application safety, Centex Machining relies on laser marking with FOBA.
