Fonon Corporation Announces Specialized High-Volume Bullet Cartridge Micro-Laser Engraving System for Munitions Industry Applications

Fonon’s subsidiary, Laser Photonics’ LaserTower™ BulletMaster™ processes 9,000 rounds/hour supporting all major bullet standards and calibers.

LAKE MARY, FL-(August 12, 2015)-Fonon Corporation (“Fonon”) is pleased to announce a specialized micro-laser engraving system to provide unique ID codes on shell casings.  The LaserTower™ BulletMaster™ is designed to provide traditional munitions marking information with the ability to incorporate unique ID codes allowing traceability to the individual ammunition purchase.   By tracing the associated sales record, law enforcement personnel are able to trace the ammunition involved in a crime, thereby creating an additional avenue that traditionally has not existed.

bAccording to the United States Department of Justice, there is a greater than 30% chance of never identifying a suspect in homicides involving firearms unless ballistic evidence can be quickly linked to the shooter.  The LaserTower™ BulletMaster™ system provides ammunition manufacturers the ability to add unique ID codes on their shell casings, providing law enforcement with modern crime fighting tools.

Most major ammunition manufacturers already use bar coding for inventory control and management.  Ammunition manufacturers would include the ID code in their current bar coding system.  Ammunition retailers will scan the bar code on each box of bullets along with the purchaser’s driver’s license, linking each shell casing to the individual purchasing the rounds.
