THE MINILASE “E”

Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc. offers the Minilase E as a high quality but cost-effective, entry-level Bench Top Galvo Driven Fibre Laser Marking System complete with the full array of capabilities of the Minilase SE Software. The Minilase E has a small footprint, making it ideal for smaller components, instruments, jewelry, etc. It’s equipped with a 10-Watt Laser that can provide razor-sharp imaging and even excellent annealed marking capability to most metals and is also highly effective on a range of other materials such as plastics, ceramics etc. 
Quality is never sacrificed, the Minilase E is simply not equipped with as many extras. It uses a robust Lab Jack for manual Z-Axis Focal Height Adjustment. It is equipped with a built-in Focal Height Indicator. Given that it is a 10-Watt Laser, it will not be quite as fast or perform marking quite as deep as some of the other more expensive models, but it’s a very well designed Class I Marking System that offers the same level of Image Quality, Marking Speeds and Versatility that only Galvo Driven Laser Technology can offer.
The Minilase Pro SE Software still supports all the same Graphic Editing, Variable Data Control and Barcoding Capabilities as any of our other systems, it’s just been designed for smaller parts and to be at our most economical price point. If you have smaller parts to process, check out the Minilase E.

HELPFUL MARKING TIPS SERIES: High Contrast Marking on Stainless Steel using Chemical Etching

High Contrast Marking on Stainless Steel using Chemical Etching

One of the most common materials to Electro-Chemically Etch is Stainless Steels. It’s used for so many products from Medial Appliances and Food Preparation Equipment to Pressure Vessels and Nuclear Hardware etc.
One of the things we are asked for most often is how to create a high contrast BLACK permanent image on Stainless. Well for a very long time it’s been quite easy to get a good high contrast marking on Stainless steel and there are many Electrolytic Solutions that can help you obtain these results. However, Millennium Signatures X4R-428 Electrolyte Solution is unique in this area. Unlike the brown coloured markings, you tend to get with other formulations, our X4R-428 Electrolyte delivers a Black result that has definitely impressed those who have long been searching for a better result in this area. This Electrolyte can be used with any of our Power Units or Electro-Chemical Marking Kits.

THE SAFE USE OF LASERS

ANSI Specification Z136.1

Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc., has specialized in providing Turn-Key Galvo Driven Laser Marking Technology, Systems and Services since 1990.
With extensive knowledge of the various configurations including the two (2) most common being a CDRH Class I designated system designs or a CDRH Class IV designated system designs, the Part Marking Specialists on staff at Millennium Signatures Marking Systems are happy to consult with you or your Safety committee on the various options to consider when buying a Laser Product and how to remain fully compliant with Safe Operating Recommendations when working with Lasers.
Probably the best publication to use when creating a Laser Safety Policy within your company would be the ANSI Z136.1 “The Safe Use of Lasers” publication as issued by The American National Laser Institute. For the past few decades, this has been the bible of people who design, build, and use Laser Products in North America and beyond.
Please feel free to contact our Technical Staff if we can assist you with getting a copy of the publication or answer any questions that your company may have.

MACHINE-READABLE CODES

Did you know that the Marksman Computerized Dot Peen Marking Technology from Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc. gives you the ability to mark your parts with 2D Barcodes, Military Spec UID Codes and QR Codes as well?

2 DIMENSIONAL CODES (2D)
Marking a 2D Code directly onto your part using our Computerized Dot Peen or Galvo Driven Laser Processes allows you to enter data such as work order #’s, Part #’s Lot #’s, Date Codes, pretty much any data at all into the system and have it automatically convert that data into square code that our equipment will allow you to permanently mark onto your parts. This code can be scanned using just about any of today’s readily available scanning technology and even very reliably with free apps, you can download for your smartphone cameras. This eliminates the concerns for labels coming off and potentially losing track of what revision of part you actually hold in your hand. It will always be there and easily accessible. It makes it very easy to track and inventory parts and can be very helpful in communicating with processes as they travel through automated production lines. For example, you can have parts scanned as they go through a process and rejected if parts should somehow become mixed or parts that are a fail can be marked to permanently confirm such important details.

UID CODES
UID Codes are a unique format of this 2Dimensional (2D Code) Technology that has been designed by the Military for their products and is often expected of manufacturers who are bidding to get such contracts that they will have the capability to mark the parts they would produce using this unique 2D Symbology.

QR CODES
QR Codes can be equally powerful, perhaps even more so in many ways. 
A QR Code is essentially a Hyperlink to a URL Address or File. For example, if you host your QR Code with Millennium Signatures or even through other sources, you can permanently print a small square code onto your part that will remain there long after any sticker, plate or other methods of marking would be lost due to any one of several variable elements of conditions. 
When scanning this code, it can immediately pull up a website or take you to a drawing or a document such as an entire manual potentially hundreds of pages of content if need be. There is really no limitations.
As long as that code is being hosted, the scanning of the code can instantly link anyone it’s a Barcode Scanner or Smartphone with a wealth of information about that part or product and it’s all controlled by you.
This information could even be changed after the mark is made potentially. Allow us to explain…..

POSSIBLE SCENARIOS
You build an assembly for Natural Gas Furnaces and there is some information such as exploded parts view, parts number listing and some installation and safety guidelines you always want available to your client. 
This means when it’s NEW out of the box of when being pulled out of a 20-year-old Furnace under repair. You completely control what information is instantly (almost magically) provides to your customer when scanned. 
However….. 4 years after production of this part, it is determined that there is a defect in the parts from manufacture or there is some reason to recall the parts. It is possible to redirect where the link that code represents a different destination or a REVISED or UPDATED destination or document. For example, a technician in the field could now remove this part and scan it with his cell phone only to learn immediately that there is a recall notice out on that part and instructions on what to do about it as a result. It is incredibly powerful if you know how to use it to its full potential.

Both Millennium Signatures Galvo Driven Laser Etching / Engraving Technologies and our Marksman Series Computerized Dot Peen (Impact Stamping) process’ can provide such markings. The beautiful thing about these Codes is not only are they so easy to create and apply to the part, they are also very permanent. If you pull a dirty, greasy part of a piece of equipment, just give it a wipe off or a scuff with a Scotch Brite Abrasive Pad or something similar and give it a scan. It’s permanently on the surface of the metal, plastic, porcelain or almost any material and will almost always produce for you when needed.

For more information on these Marking Technologies and the Systems we sell allowing you to put these markings on your parts, contact our Part Marking Specialists at Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc. 
We have facilities in Buffalo NY, USA and Burlington ON, Canada and we are currently in the process of establishing facilities in Mexico.

HELPFUL MARKING TIPS SERIES: Electro-Chemical Etching of Titanium

Electro-Chemical Etching of Titanium

“When chemically etching information on Titanium, less is often more…”

For the best Electro-Chemical Etch results on Titanium, use Millennium Signatures Electrolyte Formulation
X4R-416 at a Medium to High Power Setting in the DC Output Mode on most Power Units. A good Deep Etch Power Unit is ideal for optimal results. Getting a high contrast light surface mark on Titanium can be challenging, if your specs will accommodate, it’s actually easier to get a very sharp crisp marking by etching down a couple thousandths of an inch (0.002”) or 0.051mm which is easily achieved with a few very quick, light applications of the hand marker as not to generate too much heat. 
Give the surface a very quick light scuff with a Scotch Brito abrasive type pad and you should have a beautiful, razor sharp, high contrast etch which is often easily mistaken for a laser quality marking.

Remember:
Remember to keep your Monopad very damp with the X4R-416 Electrolyte Formulation, but not dripping all over your part and workstation. Too much heat can be the enemy when marking most metals, this is especially true when marking Titanium.
Use Standard Neutralizer or our Extra Strength X4R-900 Neutralizer to thoroughly clean the areas that came in contact with the electrolyte. 
Results may vary slightly when using different grades of Titanium, but these tips typically serve well on all Titanium Etching Applications. A good ground connection in close proximity to the area you’re marking is always important.

For more information on the best Electro-Chemical Etching Equipment, Accessories and Supplies for a given application, be sure to check our other HELPFUL MARKING TIPS SERIES Blogs and posts on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn as well as at our Website: www.millenniumsignatures.com
