Example of products that have had OEM number removed and replaced by laser at Lewmax

In our example 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

If you Google search the 24LC16B 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.

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 or markings and replace these with your own part number / logo in almost any font or style.

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.

Check out our video above to see how we can rapidly and completely remove the OEM part number from your device without harming the devices operation, or stability.

  • In our video, each device has the original OEM number removed by laser quickly and efficiently without harming the devices operation, or its stability

  • Immediately after this, the laser etches your own bespoke part number or logo to replace the original OEM number

  • This process ensures that your designs cannot be copied by a competitor, as the components are now unidentifiable to anyone outside your company
