The need to mark or identify the manufactured
products after moulding means that the surface finishing
must be evaluated.
The glossmeter is an instrument which is able to evalutate
the surface finishing or gloss of an object by means
of the gloss, meant as the ratio between the quantity
of incident light and the quantity of reflected light.
The basic properties of laser marking (light amplification
by stimulated emission of radiation) are the following:
It produces indelible marks,
resistant to wear and abrasion;
It allows precision, repeatability
and high versatility in the process;
It represents an ecological
alternative to traditional methods, as it does not
require inks and/or solvents;
It allows fast manufacturing and startup cycles.
The picture to the left shows laboratory pad-printing
test equipment, which allows the optimisation of formulations
with the inks used by the Customer.
According to the problems involved, the tests are
made on samples moulded in the laboratory or on moulded
parts supplied by the client.
