Laser Marking

Laser Marking

Laser marking is a high-speed, non-contact process that uses focused laser sources to mark a variety of materials. It can use vector drawing—like pencil on paper—or raster marking processes to mark almost any pattern onto your parts including text, 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.

Our Laser Marking Machines

Using industry-leading laser sources, galvanometer beam control systems and custom software, we manufacture custom laser marking machines that uniquely combine speed, performance and flexibility to meet your specific requirements.

We have one of the most comprehensive laser applications laboratories in the industry and maintain strategic partnerships with leading industrial laser manufacturers to provide you with a diverse selection of high-quality laser sources for direct part marking.

You can use our state-of-the-art laser systems in a variety of industries—including automotive, aerospace, electronics, medical and many more.

Plastic Marking

Our laser marking machines utilize a variety of techniques and range of laser wavelengths to create permanent marks on your plastic parts. Depending on the plastic type, color and size, we’ll develop and integrate the right marking system into your manufacturing process.

Metal Marking

Whether you require a surface mark or engraved mark on your metal parts, we can design a laser marking system to meet your needs. Our custom laser marking machines utilize various wavelengths to mark a wide range of metals—from aluminum and zinc, to highly reflective metals like gold and copper.

Glass Marking

Depending on your requirements, our laser systems create external or internal marks on your glass parts. External marking etches information on the outside surface, while internal marking creates micro-cracks inside the bulk of the glass. Using a varying focal position, we can even achieve 3D internal marks.

Ceramic Marking

Our systems utilize both near-infrared and shorter wavelength laser sources to successfully mark ceramic materials, including electronic components.

Laser Wire Marking

Our laser systems leave permanent wire marks that can’t be scraped or rubbed off. Marks share the same properties as the insulation and can withstand the same temperatures and flexing levels as unmarked wire.
