Providing Laser Marking Solutions for Aerospace Parts and Processes
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.
Features of Laser Marking System for Aerospace Applications
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.
Benefits of Nd: YAG and Fiber Laser Marking Systems
These particular laser systems can provide many benefits to the marking and engraving processes:
- All letters, numbers, or symbols in the markings are created without any distortion.
- This system is inexpensive and can be easily automated for high volume requirements.
- The system uses a non-contact method to create permanent, high quality, and contaminant-free markings.
Aerospace Laser Marking and Engraving Service Applications
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:
- Logo marking
- Barcode marking
- Regulatory marking
- Name plate engraving
- Metal labels engraving
- Part numbers engraving
- Panel and controls marking
- Lot and date coding marking
- Marking plastic switches and backlit buttons
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.
