Laser marking, welding, drilling and cutting of plastics. Discover our solutions designed for processing polymers—from medical devices to automotive components and commercial goods, the possibilities are endless.
Laser Processing of Plastic
At CMS Laser, we design industrial laser systems to process a wide range of polymers used throughout many industries. Whether you need to mark, cut, drill or weld your plastic parts—our solutions are designed to meet your manufacturing requirements. From stationary part identification marking to high-speed on-the-fly marking systems, designed and built in the USA.
Laser marking systems employ a variety of techniques to leave high-quality, permanent marks on plastic parts. We design our marking systems with a range of laser wavelengths, depending on plastic type and color.
Laser cutting plastics doesn’t place direct mechanical stress on your parts. Thanks to this non-contact method, you don’t need to replace any blades—which is common for other cutting methods. Our lasers can cut intricate patterns into parts, cut long lines through plastic sheets—and everything in between.
A type of laser cutting, degating involves separating individual molded plastic parts from the runner at the gate. This process is sensitive to stress and requires precise cut locations. Laser systems offer non-contact degating—placing minimal strain on parts and producing edges that don’t require any post-processing.
Laser welding seals plastics that have similar melting properties. Lasers can even weld clear-on-clear plastics with no additives or color change.
Laser systems offer precise drilling of plastic parts. Thanks to the laser’s localized energy, you can finely tune the shape and placement of the holes to your specific requirements.

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.
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.
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.
