Lexco® Cable is an industry-leading wire rope assembly manufacturer using advanced equipment to offer you a variety of labeling, engraving, and laser etching services.
Industries from automotive and aerospace to construction, defense, and beyond understand the importance of part identification. Across the country and around the world, there are laws and regulations regarding clearly legible product and part identification. Lexco’s detailed labeling, engraving, bag and tag, and laser etching services offer an ideal method of ensuring identification for components and products that require a high level of traceability.
Laser engraving is a high-quality method of marking information, including part numbers, manufacturing dates, times, load limits, and other traceable markings. Laser engravings provide an excellent resolution for alphanumeric and machine-readable markings as the process allows for variable depths in addition to a character height and width range of .007 to 4.0 inches. The permanence and legibility of laser engravings make it an ideal means of ensuring compliance, legibility, and traceability.
Laser etching differs from laser engraving as etchings are done at a lower power setting and are limited to a maximum depth of 0.001 inches. Laser etchings help companies reduce errors and ensure part safety and can be done on bare, anodized, or plated metal surfaces and meet MIL-STD-130 identification requirements.
Lexco® also offers a variety of alternative labeling options including the traditional “bag and tag” process. We are more than happy to bag your components and assemblies individually, in groups, and in sub-groups. Bags can be quickly and easily tagged with stickered labels that include information such as part numbers, working load limits, dates, or nearly any other piece of information you require. In contrast to laser etching and laser engraving, the “bag and tag” process can be applied to any type of assembly or component regardless of shape or material.
Depending on your specific needs, we are also able to provide engraving pen markings, end-mill engravings, pre-cut heat-shrink tubing printed with your desired markings, and self-laminating polyester labels.
