The steel gear was marked using a 20 Watt Q-Switched Fiber Laser with a 160 mm lens. Logo, human readable characters and their barcode, 2D matrix code were etched on the part using 18 Watts of power, frequency of 25 kHz and speed of 6" per second for only one pass. All marked characters including of Laser Photonics, date code and serial number took a total of 5.44 seconds. The cycle time for barcode was 10.70 seconds, for 2D code was 4.65 seconds, and for logo was 27.46 seconds. High contrast marks were achieved.
