Contactless coding & marking on hot, cold, wet, oily surfaces.
Consistently crisp, clear, and precisely positioned code & marks.
Built to last – laser life of approximately 100,000 hours.
Ideal for manufacturers who have space limitations.
EASY TO USE
Simple to operate, rapid code change-over, high productivity level.
Why are an increasing number of manufacturers selecting CO2 laser marking systems?
The growing need for product traceability and branding drives more and more manufacturers to integrate product coding and marking systems into their production environment. CO2 lasers have become progressively more affordable and inexpensive to operate (minimal parts replacement required and no need for consumables). The systems are capable of high-speed marking of many substrates and are ready to use with a quick and simple set-up.
CO2 laser marking vs. Inkjet marking
- Markings are high resolution & precise
- Markings are permanent
- No consumables cost
- Can mark on wet, hot, cold surfaces
- Marks curved surfaces
- Very low maintenance
- Item need not be moving during marking
- Clean operation
- Higher initial cost
- Lower initial cost
- Marking speed (in some instances)
- On-going consumables cost
- Need for regular maintenance & clogged print-head
- Inks may contain harmful chemicals and release strong odors & not-environmentally friendly
- Limited print area & size
- Print-head has to be close to the print surface
- Often messy operation with ink deposits on the floor beneath the printer
