The applications for laser marking are endless—from engraving golf club heads to marking serial numbers on miniaturized semiconductors. Our laser marking systems focus the beam within microns of the sample place, making laser marking the most repeatable process available.
- Deep engrave, etch, or surface mark parts
- Mark graphics, text, logos, barcodes and more
Laser marking is a high-speed, non-contact process that uses a focused laser source to slowly heat or quickly vaporize materials. Our systems can use vector drawings or raster images to mark almost any pattern onto your parts including text, custom graphics, barcodes and 2D data matrices.
Unlike traditional marking processes, laser marking doesn’t require masks, inks or custom machining bits—reducing operating costs and changeover time between parts and designs.
From Galvanized Steel to Coated Synthetics, We Can Mark It.
Whether you require a surface or an engraved mark, our machines can be equipped with any laser wavelength to process a wide variety of metals—from aluminum and zinc, to highly reflective metals like gold and copper.
- Metal marking methods include annealing, ablation, oxidation, melting, and paint/layer removal
- Typical applications include bearings, valves, gears, surgical tools, sensors, golf clubs, industrial tags
Laser marking plastic components offers a permanent solution by photochemically altering the surface of the plastic. Although, not all plastics are able to be marked without some type of additive like titanium dioxide.
- Plastic marking methods include foaming, carbonization, ablation, melting, bleaching, and chemical alteration
- Typical applications include medical devices, electronic control panels and PCBs, product housings, extruded tubing
Laser marking glass is a common technique used in the automotive and glassware industries, as well as many others. This process is typically done with either a CO2 or UV laser.
- Typical applications include windshields/mirrors, beverage glasses, appliances, ampoules/vials, tubes, syringes
Laser marked ceramics can appear black as if the surface was burnt or a marking that appears to have melted the surface.
Laser marking wires is a high-speed on-the-fly process used for marking manufacturing information with product identification.
- Typical applications include basic wires, coaxial cables, wire conduit shielding, aerospace wires

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.
