Lanham, MD, October 6, 2011: Laser microfabrication leader, Potomac Photonics  has added advanced laser marking technology and software to its precision laser micromachining contract services offerings. The new laser technology allows Potomac to provide a complete service to companies that outsource micro manufacturing in the medical device, sensor, MEMS, electronics, industrial, and consumer product markets.

Potomac's laser coding and marking systems can mark virtually any material including anodized metals, stainless steel, copper, plastics, glass, and even diamond. The laser marks are crisp and clean with no charring or burning of the underlying material. Laser marking is also possible on curved surfaces with no loss of clarity.

Most impressive is Potomac's ability to micro-mark small codes for miniature devices or as part of a discrete anti-counterfeiting program. Laser marking is environmentally friendly with no inks or solvents required in any part of the process. In addition, laser marking is indelible on even the hardest materials like glass or diamond.

This new laser marking software allows Potomac to laser etch QR codes directly onto products of almost any material. Creating codes that can be read across Smartphone platforms is vital for the successful use of a QR code.
