Virtek Vision International Inc.

Virtek Laser Systems will make its European glass fabricating industry debut at Glasstec 2002 in Dûsseldorf, Germany.On show at Booth 13D13-3 will be Virtek’s Mobile GlasMark Laser Marking System.

The Company’s laser marking systems are also available as in-line units designed for installation directly into the fabrication process. Virtek’s glass marking product family permits users to dispense with conventional marking methods that require the use of consumables (sand, ink and masks), which bring with them the risks of furnace contamination as well as environmental contamination from airborne particulate. All systems are capable of operating in standalone mode, networked, or both. In addition, the laser marking systems are compatible with fabricators’ existing design software programs – they read any vector-based graphic file format, including DXF, PCX, AGL and PLT. If desired, most popular software packages may be used to import graphics or fonts.

Laser technology offers consistent marking quality because the marking process is independent of the operator and is not subject to wear and tear of either mechanical components or masks. Virtek’s systems mark tempering logos, bar codes, product codes, date & time stamps, warranty information, unique customer logos, etc., and therefore enable fabricators to satisfy product and industry labeling code requirements. In addition, the ability to provide customers with their unique logos allows fabricators to customize their production to meet their customers’ needs.
