Laser Marking Medical Devices and Instruments

Medical industry professionals require surgical instruments that are appropriately marked with permanent, readable identifiers that don’t compromise safety. At Telesis Technologies, Inc., we engineer state-of-the-art solutions for laser marking medical devices.

Why Use Laser Marking on Medical Devices?

Manufacturers are required to follow strict specifications when marking surgical devices for the medical industry. According to government guidelines for unique device identification, all medical instruments, devices, implants and tools must have permanent, precise and legible markings. These regulations make it easier to identify medical devices sold in the United States and track them from manufacturing to patient use.

The purpose of laser engraving medical devices with unique device identifiers (UDIs) is to improve patient safety, streamline post-market surveillance and drive innovation. These machines adhere to stringent part marking guidelines for product identification and manufacturing traceability while eliminating the risk of potential damage. They can also mark uneven surfaces, oddly shaped devices and various material types.

Benefits of Medical Device Laser Marking

If you're looking to engrave surgical instruments with optimal accuracy and safety, our laser marking solutions offer numerous advantages:


  • Readable marks: Laser engravers produce permanent, high-contrast marks on medical devices that ensure UDIs are visible and legible.
  • Operational precision: Since laser marking machines do not make direct contact with surgical instruments, they facilitate error-free operation and produce precise, repeatable results.
  • High durability: When you laser-engrave medical devices, you generate robust markings that can withstand harsh environments and conditions. 
  • Fast processes: The laser marking process is highly efficient, with increased speeds that help organizations save time and money.
  • Minimal consumables: Engraving surgical instruments requires little to no consumables, making it a cost-effective and eco-friendly process.
  • Material versatility: You can use laser markers on countless materials, from metal and plastic to wood and rubber.
