Powerful laser technology is a labeling process that is precisely tailored to the respective surfaces.
Labelling or cleaning
Laser cutting enables the highest precision and accuracy. The process makes it possible to achieve high-quality results in the areas of labelling, barcodes or surface removal using technical drawings that are transferred 1:1 to the workpiece.
This technology can significantly reduce the logistics effort and time required by our customers. Because the marking of machined components can also be carried out in-house. This has the advantage of clear time management.
No masking necessary
No infiltration possible
Laser technology is also suitable for paint stripping and cleaning. Coatings, such as oxide layers, can be removed – precisely and limited to within the µm range. The advantages are obvious, because the process is contactless and dimensionally accurate. Moreover, masking is not necessary and infiltration is not possible. Lasering is an environmentally conscious process as there is no waste or residue.
Components can be labelled or marked using a laser. The material and composition of the workpieces determine the respective processes that are necessary. A large number of materials are suitable for labelling. Laser markings are waterproof, smudge-proof and very durable. They can be generated quickly, automatically and individually. For numerous manufacturers from a wide range of industries, flexible and permanent laser marking has therefore long been the preferred method. (is something missing here?)
Precision laser marking is also possible for large lettering on an area of 815 mm x 360 mm. Single letters or numbers are feasible up to 180 mm x 180 mm, other sizes on request.
Micro-labelling is possible with lasers for applications down to less than one millimetre. The powerful laser technology ensures precision and attention to detail.
There is hardly any material that is not suitable for laser marking and labelling. Metals and alloys of all kinds, plastics, ceramics and much more is possible.
Machine readable codes for traceability, serial numbers, alphanumeric characters, logos and graphics are just a few examples for barcodes. In industry, this form of labelling is an integral part of logistics and brand recognition. Lasers fix these barcodes permanently to surfaces.
Annealing marking with a laser changes the colour of metals. This is done under the influence of heat and oxygen without material removal. In this purely thermal process, certain metals are heated locally to below their melting point. Oxide layers are formed on the surface, the nature of which determines the colour impression. With annealing marking, finished surfaces can be subsequently marked.
Laser deep engraving is a mechanical cutting process. Thanks to the laser-induced material removal, engraving is possible on many materials. This process is of great advantage especially in the area of stamping or embossing production.
