Challenges that occurred before Laser Marking Technology emerged-

Limited Precision: Traditional marking methods like mechanical engraving, stamping, and chemical etching lacked the precision required for intricate designs, small text, and complex patterns, which made it difficult to mark certain materials accurately, leading to readability issues and reduced product traceability.

Surface Damage: Some traditional marking methods could cause surface damage to delicate materials or substrates that not only compromise the aesthetic appearance of the marked item but also weaken its structural integrity in some cases.

Material Compatibility: The marking methods were only suitable for specific types of materials. For example, chemical etching was used on metals, while inkjet printing was common on porous surfaces like paper and cardboard. This lack of versatility limited the range of applications for traditional marking technologies.

Degradation: Coding done by traditional methods was sometimes prone to fading, smudging, or wear over time, particularly in harsh environments or under exposure to chemicals, UV light, or abrasion which compromised the readability and durability of the marks, affecting product identification and traceability.

Overall, the advent of laser marking technology addressed many of these challenges by offering a non-contact, precise, and versatile marking solution with enhanced durability and environmental sustainability.
