For manufacturers of aerospace parts, a good traceability system is a vital part of quality monitoring. The use of a laser marking machine for metal ensures that these traceability marks are permanent and will remain legible – even when undergoing extreme heat and friction. A laser etching machine will you can ensure your aerospace assets are permanently traceable and identifiable.

IDENTIFICATION AND TRACEABILITY

 
Aerospace part marking needs precision and reliability. Needham Laser is a long established supplier of laser marking solutions into the aerospace sector, helping our customers track and mark parts internationally, guaranteeing identification and traceability. 
 
Whether it be serial codes, matrix, part numbers, graphics or lot coding, our aerospace laser marking systems can offer significant gains over conventional rotary engraving or dot-peen systems.
 
Our laser engraving machines are no contact, require no consumables (reducing cost) and are easily automated. They also require little maintenance are more environmentally friendly than other making machines.
 
The ability to mark either serialized or variable data transmitted in real-time is also a huge bonus for aerospace manufacturers.

ACCURACY

The automated process of a metal etching machine delivers superior repeatability and consistency, ensuring that engineering measuring tools have ticks and readings that are marked and positioned accurately. 

Needham laser engravers can also mark on incredibly small parts, with guaranteed accuracy and precision.

LASER ENGRAVING METALS

The types of metals that a laser engraver can be used on are as varied as its aerospace applications. A metal engraving machine can be used to make permanent marks on stainless steel, soft metals, hardened metals, alloys, titanium, titanium alloys, brass, copper, carbides, high-speed steels, aluminium, anodised aluminium, coated metals, and precious metals such as silver and gold. With the right equipment and experienced operator at the helm, switching over from one metal to another will be as simple as changing laser parameters on the accompanying software.

In contrast to more traditional methods of marking, a laser engraving machine does not require consumables such as inks, chemicals, or pastes.
