Laser Engraving For RoHS and REACH Compliance
An Alternative To Ceramic Decals
A few of PEG’s customers were in crisis: the ceramic decals PEG was applying to their components were not compliant with RoHS directives or REACH regulations. Without being compliant, the customers could not ship to the European Union, therefore, limiting their globalization plans. Since the customer’s logos and/or serial numbers are important to brand building, visibility, and awareness, removing it was not an option.
The Solution: PEG addressed this challenge with an alternative to ceramic (decal) labeling and other branding options. It is through in-house laser engraving, which adds no chemical properties to the components and therefore PEG was able to provide products in compliance with RoHS directives and REACH regulations.
Fact: In a marketplace that is driven by competition, it is more important than ever that components stand apart from competitors. PEG’s in-house laser engraving on quartz components and other materials avoids chemical regulations and supports establishing and enhancing brand recognition. Serial numbers can be laser engraved, as can logos or other data important to our customers. Laser engraving is ultimately only affecting the material used in the original production of the part or product. Thus, when the original material meets RoHS directives and REACH regulations (to begin with), so will the laser engraved versions.
PEG Capabilities: While PEG specializes in industrial laser engraving logos and serial numbers on quartz ICP components, additional special capabilities include engraving on Kovar, quartz, stainless steel, brass, brushed aluminum and dozens of other materials. PEG offers a wide array of laser engraving, cutting and marking services aided by an in-house design and engraving team. Additional PEG capabilities include extensive knowledge of glass, engineering experience, precision bore shrinking, and precision glass fabrication.
