Mark, Cut, Drill, and Weld Metals

Laser marking of metal is a common manufacturing process for adding identification and traceability to various components. Markings are permanent, require no additives or coatings, and can be easily automated.

CMS Laser also designs solutions for cutting and drilling thin metals, and for welding various components. With the introduction of new ultrafast lasers, metals can be processed with minimal heat-affected zones (HAZ).


Various types of steel can be processed with our laser systems. Create high contrast markings, deep engravings, cuts, and welds.
