    Laser Marking and Engraving on Plastic – Cost effective laser engraving outsourcing solutions by Laser Impression Inc.

    Laser engraving plastic, Delrin, ceramic and many other composite materials has become more popular. Laser Impressions is able to engrave logos, bar codes as well as offer part serialization for large and small lot runs. Manufacturers of medical devices use laser medical engraving because of the mark clarity, permanency (no added paints or chemicals), and its ability to survive repeated sterilization.

    Laser Engraving Plastic Surfaces

    The medical engraving process is approved by the FDA, so instrument and component manufacturers have one less hurdle in the product approval process. The medical laser engraving process can produce a dark, smooth mark on most metal surfaces so the laser marking does not trap blood or tissue material and thus simplifies cleaning and sterilization. Delrin, Teflon, PEEK, Ceramic and ABS are examples of medical plastics that are commonly marked by the laser plastics engraving process.
