How laser marking ensures the safety of medical device applications

December 2, 2021

The identification of medical products is essential to ensure application traceability and quality assurance. Since the Food and Drug Administration adopted a new rule for the identification of medical products to make the marking of all devices with a unique device identifier mandatory, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) require high quality markings on all their medical devices.

Laser marking is the preferred method of marking technologies for manufacturers worldwide, with markings appearing on a variety of medical devices such as orthopaedic implants and other medical instruments.
