Ensinger presents new laser markable engineering plastics
The new product TECAFORM AH LM, a modified polyacetal copolymer (POM-C), permits particularly high-contrast laser markings on technical components and fulfils the stringent regulatory requirements of the food and pharmaceuticals sector (FDA, EU 10/2011).
Marking lasers are among the most reliable labelling systems. Laser labelling is permanent, fraud-proof and clearly legible. Unlike engraved surfaces, laser-marked parts are easy to clean, and in contrast to ink markings which can wear out over the product’s life cycle, there is also no contamination risk to foodstuffs or pharmaceutical products.
The material POM-C natural, which is widely used in industry, cannot be labelled using UV marking lasers, and therefore Ensinger has developed a compound with a special additive. Customised data such as text, numbers, graphics and codes facilitating traceability can be applied to the light-coloured material, available in the colours “white” and “grey”, using serial production processes.
The Ensinger group is engaged in the development, manufacture and sale of compounds, semi-finished materials, profiles and technical parts made of engineering and high performance plastics through extrusion, machining and injection moulding. With a total of 2,400 employees at 33 locations, the family-owned enterprise is represented worldwide in all major industrial regions with manufacturing facilities or sales offices.
