The number of plastics applications, and with it the need for laser treatment in plastics, has tremendously increased over the last several years. Since 1995 EMD Chemicals has worked intensively on the treatment of plastics with lasers and today offers a broad range of pigments to enable the economical laser marking and laser welding of plastics.
Since the topic of laser treatment is very complex and new possibilities for material processing continually arise, EMD Chemicals wants to assist you not only with appropriate products, but also with detailed knowledge on processing.
For this reason, EMD Chemicals has compiled its experiences in plastics and lasers in this Laserforum. It shows you a series of possibilities in laser marking and laser welding of plastics and gives answers to questions such as:
How is a laser mark generated? What is the difference between a rod and a fiber laser? Why may Iriotec® 8000 series laser sensitive pigments be needed? How do they work and which is the product that fits my application best?
Furthermore, you’ll find a list of links to cooperation partners on whose websites you’ll get additional information regarding related laser topics and where you’ll find the right contacts so you are able to quickly achieve your goal.
