Component serialization and traceability are two critical aspects of aircraft manufacturing. Parts need to be tracked during the manufacturing phase, as well as when the equipment is used in an aircraft. Hence, the markings will have to be properly engraved, easily legible, and not fade away in a short period of time. Hai Tech Lasers, Inc. provides solutions for all three requirements for laser marking on aerospace parts.
Most aerospace components are exposed to extreme temperatures and harsh environmental conditions. The type of laser system used should ensure that the laser markings are deeply etched, and long-lasting. For aircraft components, we utilize lamp pumped and fiber laser marking machines. The lamp pumped system uses a Neodymium-doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (Nd:YAG) crystal, while the fiber system uses a Ytterbium doped fiber for generating the laser beam.
These particular laser systems can provide many benefits to the marking and engraving processes:
We have the capability to mark and engrave nonmetals such as plastics, ceramics, and thermo-elastomer rubber, and metals such as titanium, stainless steel, and aluminum. The laser system is used to provide various laser marking services to aerospace manufacturers, including:
The laser marking processes adhere to regulations laid down in AS478-3 and MIL-STD-130 standards. If you would like to know more, please contact us via phone at +1 (661) 775-0210, or via email at sales@HaiTechLasers.com.
