Extrusion Line Laser Coding & Cutting

Laser marking plastic and aluminum extrusion is a non-contact process for creating permanent high-contrast identifiable symbols. Laser mark barcodes, text and more using our on-the-fly marking technology. Replace continuous inkjet printers with CMS laser technology.

Lasers for Extrusion Lines

Extrusion is a high-volume manufacturing process, during which raw materials are melted and formed into continuous profiles. It produces items like plastic pipes and other tubing, window frames, thermoplastic coatings, wire insulation, aluminum tubing and more. Many of these products require high speed, accurate part marking, cutting, or drilling.

Our laser technology enables manufacturers with the ability to produce high contrast markings on plastic and metal surfaces at line speeds. This technology is called laser marking on-the-fly, a process that tracks the speed of the product moving under the laser while simultaneously adjusting marking parameters.

Laser Marking On-The-Fly

When it comes to extrusion lines, laser marking machines must mark extruded material that is constantly moving. Having pioneered on-the-fly marking technology many decades ago, our technology features closed loop feedback to accurately track and mark parts as they travel past the laser field. These systems account for variations in line speed and can incorporate machine vision to validate part placement and process quality.

Extrusion lines often run 24 hours a day, seven days a week where you cannot afford to have a marking system that stops unexpectedly. Our machines are designed to withstand continuous high speed operation in harsh environments and are rigorously tested in our facility to meet the demands of the extrusion industry.

The Absolute Best Customer Service Around

Working with the entire Control Micro Systems team on our project was a pleasure. CMS was capable of meeting and exceeding our goals. They successfully designed and built a machine which increased our throughput by 550%! We are so glad we chose to move forward with CMS.

Jim B., Custom Wire Technologies, Inc.

In the three years ACR has owned the CMS laser, it has worked flawlessly. In the few instances where ACR needed support in programming, CMS was quick to respond.

Mike S., ACR Electronics, Inc.

CMS have been excellent partners in the development of new, complex equipment for our business. CMS built multiple machines for us. Each machine had a different purpose, however the CMS team worked openly & honestly with us to agree on optimal solutions for each one.
