UV Laser Helps to Improve Efficiency of Trains
The railroad tycoon, Bombardier Transportation will set up a high-performance marking system in the trains to San Francisco. The high-speed UV laser wire mark, measure and cut system is bought from UK-based Spectrum Technologies, which specializes in laser wire processing equipment in aerospace industries and electronics manufacturing. And it will be installed before the end of this month.

Bombardier Transportation is about to develop the electrical wiring and interconnect systems on Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) of San Francisco with the new technology. The BART trains will be substituted for 775 new vehicles, which will require about 4000 miles of electrical wire to be processed.
Advantages of New Technology
Conventional wire identification is to place pre-marked "heat shrink" plastic sleeves on the ends of wire, which will increase the wire weight and cause a high cost. According to UK-based Spectrum, the wire marking UV laser was manufactured by a sub-contractor and the new technology will help to reduce the wire weight and increase the energy efficiency as much as possible. In addition, the wires can be identified along almost the entire length and maintain a high quality. What’s more, with the permanent marking performance, the identity codes are wear-resistant and helpful to the train maintenance.

Wide Applicability of UV Laser Marking
With the rapid development of technology, the use of UV laser marking is more and more extensive, not only in transportation industries, but also in many other industries, such as special materials marking, cutting and processing in all kinds of glass, LCD panel, textiles, chip ceramics, semiconductor wafers, IC grains, sapphires, polymer films, etc. We can look forward to broader prospects of UV laser making in the future.
