Fighting Crime with Fiber Lasers

Developed specifically for law enforcement agencies, the .357 Magnum has been the back bone of police departments and military agencies throughout the world. Laser Photonics, a leader in fiber laser technology, has developed the systems to etch aluminum and stainless steel gun parts with such things as: UID markings, part numbers, company names and logos.

Without a doubt, police need help solving crimes. Using the technology developed by Laser Photonics, the crime-solving potential of UID markings, traceable part numbers and other identifying marks is enormous. Together with the efforts of law enforcement agencies, Laser Photonics is proud to provide an additional tool that police departments and military agencies around the world can certainly use.

In order to process aluminum and stainless steel gun parts, Laser Photonics utilizes the Fiber Tower Mega Center. The gun parts are processed using a pulsed fiber laser through a 160mm F-theta Lens. Setting the power at 98% for the aluminum marking and 100% for the stainless, both processes were run at a frequency of 20kHz, and a speed of 10 inches per second. Total time to complete the aluminum was 119 seconds in four passes. Total time to complete the stainless was 452 seconds in four passes.
