Greg Blackman assesses the health of the laser job shop market and finds that new service offerings are springing up for micromachining
4Jet Technologies has developed a novel laser marking process that can engrave an individual QR code in tyre sidewalls
4Jet Technologies has launched a laser system for drilling via holes in glass substrates for c-Si photovoltaic modules. Several of the new systems have been ordered by a major glass supplier in Asia.
The increasing use of glass/glass modules in PV applications means holes have to be drilled for bus bar wires and junction boxes in cover or substrate glass sheets. Depending on the module design, several holes in different locations of a sheet may be required.
4Jet Technologies has developed a novel laser marking process that can engrave an individual data matrix code in tyre sidewalls. The high contrast engraving can be read using public domain apps available for Apple iOS or Android devices.
The Scannect solution – short for ‘scan and connect’ – allows producers to trace tyres through their life cycle.
