Product markings with laser films „ARA-LT®

General description

  • By using a standard marking laser, thin „inorganic“ layers are tranferred from a transparent carrier film selectively onto product surfaces. In case that the products are made of glass or any other transparent material, the laser coatings can be applied on backside – through the substrates, too.
  • The standard transparent carrier films are made of PET with a thickness of 72 µm.
  • An example video, which shows the laser-coating process, can be found under the following link.

Additional Information

  • The laser films ARA-LT® are well suitable for manual use, but also for large-scale production.
  • For the marking of some products it can be necessary to construct a specific device for a controlled transfer of the laser film.
  • For the use of ARA-LT® laser films, standard marking lasers can be used (e.g. fiber, YAG) with a wavelength of 1064 nm and a power between 5 and 20 W.
  • For high-quality markings and coatings with ARA-LT® it is essential to us the correct laser parameter settings for „power“, „frequency“, „speed“,… These settings maybe slightly different for lasers from different manufacturers and types.
  • To facilitate the PVD-marking setup, Ara-Coatings offers a „starter - kit“ for the first trials with this new technology, together with suitable laser parameter settings as used at Ara-Coatings.
  • Ara-Coatings offers the certification of lasers to confirm their suitability for the use of ARA-LT® laser films. In these cases the suitable laser settings already exist.
  • „Turn-Key“ solutions are available now, too: A fiber laser (from net € 6.900,00) with default laser parameter settings plus standard ARA-LT® laser films plus voucher for a personal instruction plus different types of products for trials.
