Hispeed Laser independent research, development, design and manufacturing laser marking system, the UV laser system was born for the new trend of contact lenses.
How laser marking technology is used in contact lenses
Laser marking technology allows any alphanumeric text to engrave on the surface of the contact lenses. The marking process can design not to interfere with the normal surface distribution of the tear layer. Moreover, the use of high-tech laser heads makes it possible to achieve highly-visible engravings, even to the naked eye, making lens recognition simple and immediate.
Hispeed UV Laser system generates the engravings by cold laser ablation of 355 nm UV radiation. This results in a superior engraving quality considering all cosmetic aspects – without any heat affection and micro cracks.
