and audio bezels
Marking layout, current ratings and protection information on fuse box covers
Marking epoxy packaged ICs and other micro components with text and graphics for identification
Cleaning epoxy flash material from capacitor legs to ensure integrity of electrical connections
Production of text and graphics on plastic relays, circuit breakers and switch covers to meet
specific requirements of approvals bodies in different markets
Placing text graphics and part identification numbers on titanium heart pacemaker cans and
surgical steel repair components
Generating unique two dimensional codes on surgical steel instruments for inventory management
Removing an opaque layer of rubber or plastic from a translucent substrate to create back-lit
