As one of the leading international suppliers of laser marking systems with long-term expertise especially in the field of medical device UDI direct part labeling, FOBA offers best practices to meet the latest requirements of UDI parts marking. FOBA sees itself not only as a supplier of advanced technical solutions but also offers its customers comprehensive consulting and expertise regarding the implementation of UDI according to the latest legal requirements.

Most FDA-deadlines for the direct part UDI marking of medical devices that are used more than once and intended to be reprocessed before each use have already passed. However, the implementation of a reliable laser marking system becomes even more important for medical manufacturers as the European Medical Device Regulation (MDR) will come into effect on May 26, 2020.

FOBA’s laser marking solutions enable precise marking results and maximum operating efficiency. Laser marks can be applied on any medical product such as stainless steel surgical instruments, titanium implants, or plastic single use items. The optionally integrated camera is situated directly in the laser head, which enables automated part detection. The innovative marking feature FOBA Mosaic can make part fixtures obsolete. A three-step marking process includes not only a precise mark alignment, but also the pre- and post-marking validation of parts and marking results.

FOBA’s Titus responds to the needs of integrators who look for a highly flexible and easy to install unit.
