Creating Barcodes Using Commercial Laser Marking Systems

Companies use various methods for marking barcodes, including printing directly to packaging, adhesive labels and hang tags (which are then applied to products), and etching the mark directly to the product or part.

Each method has its pros and cons:

  • The inkjet printing process is quick and easy, but expensive and the mark isn’t permanent.
  • The etching process, also known as “laser marking,” is a permanent marking solution that doesn’t wear off or fade, even in harsh environments.
