Your new product is ready to go to market.  But how long before your design is copied and marketed by a competitor here or in Asia? Today this costs companies millions in lost revenues and profits. 

Right now all your competitor needs do is look at your PCB board, view the components you've used, and they have your bill of materials – simple as that.

Lewmax now have a solution that offers protection against this ongoing problem.

Developed over two years, our bespoke laser systems can now completely remove all evidence of the original component device number / markings and replace these with your own part number / logo in almost any font or style.

In our example here on the left, we've used our lasers to completely remove all traces of the markings  '24LC16B S/N' and replace these with our own number 'LMAX01234'.  Google search the 24LC16B and you'll be presented with pages of information and data for this device.  Now try and Google search an 'LMAX01234' and you'll find no information at all.

Now a competitor views components on your PCB that are unfamiliar to him that cannot be identified. This makes trying to copy your design virtually impossible. Increased revenues for you, increased profits in the knowledge your design is safe.
