Laser Marking Silicon Parts? Our Systems Have You Covered

Searching for a durable and efficient system for laser engraving silicon parts? TYKMA Electrox has the system for you.

What Is Silicon?

Silicon is a metallic-looking chemical element that works as semiconductor and is extremely common. Silicon is commonly found in all of the following:

  • Silica sand
  • Stone
  • Clays
  • Ceramics
  • Cement
  • Gravel
  • Concrete
  • And much more

Additionally, silicon is frequently used in microelectronics and computer chips. Small, disk-shaped, thin pieces of pure silicon, called silicon wafers, are found in almost all electronic devices, including:

  • Phones
  • Computers
  • Microwave oven control panels
  • Hearing aids
  • Camera sensors
  • Credit card security chips
  • WIFI boxes
  • MP3 players
  • Memory sticks
  • Thermal cameras
  • Solar cells
  • Radios

By powering all of these devices and more, silicon is integral to modern technology and our daily lives.

Finding the Right System for Laser Marking Silicon

In the electronics industry, a serial number is typically engraved on the back of every silicon wafer to ensure product traceability and identification. In the electronics industry, a serial number is typically engraved on the back of every silicon wafer to ensure product traceability and identification. However, silicon wafers are very small, with sizes ranging from 50mm to 300mm in diameter. Due to the small size, a very precise laser engraver is required to clearly mark a serial number on a silicon wafer.

At TYKMA Electrox, we strive to provide precise laser engravers that will create deep, long-lasting, and high-contrast markings on any surface. If you are searching for a system perfect for laser marking silicon wafers, you can count on our laser engravers.
