Improving character marking is important. Product and packaging manufacturing are continuously evolving, but one constant remains: the need to mark items accurately and permanently. The on-going advancement in these industries drives new demands in throughput. These require that marks maintain quality to properly represent brand image or enable proper vision inspection. This paper examines a digital approach to marking using a laser and scan head, including selection of system components and optimizing settings to achieve processing goals for throughput and quality.
