Laser Marking Systems
Industrial coding and marking using laser systems has a crucial advantage: it is free of consumables and virtually maintenance-free, i.e. subsequent costs are low. Laser systems lend themselves to all types of marking on organic materials and plastics, glass, anodized aluminum, metals and color removal on any surfaces. One of the main reasons for using laser systems is protection against counterfeiting, and traceability of products due to the permanence of the marking.
Our product catalog includes standard machines to engineered solutions, enabling our customers to easily configure a solution that meets their specific needs. Offering two product lines, laser marking and pin marking, PACKMACHINE uses our long history of direct part marking expertise to improve your manufacturing traceability. We believe in partnering with you to determine the best equipment, the best application, and the best software interface to help you succeed.
Laser marking systems can print high-quality marks on a range of materials provided the substrate, the application, and desired mark are well understood. Laser coding, etching and marking is a non-contact printing method that offers some advantages over other technologies – including high mark resolution, high speed, permanence and fewer consumables.
PACKMACHINE’s line of laser coding machines includes CO2 Laser Marker, Fiber Laser Marker and UV Laser sources in a variety of power outputs to address a range of substrates and applications. In addition, Videojet offers a portfolio of laser accessories including lenses, beam turning units and protective guarding to simplify integration of the laser marking machine into your production lines and maximise its performance.
What types of information can Laser Markers code?
Laser marking machines can code a diverse range of different information and graphics onto products and packaging, including:
- Alphanumeric codes
- Linear and 2D Barcodes
- DataMatrix and QR codes
- Serial numbers
- Batch numbers
- Expiry/BBE dates
What different materials can be Marked with Lasers?
Laser markers can code onto a wide range of substrates, such as Metals (including stainless steel, titanium and aluminium), Plastics (including PET and PVC), Glass, Wood, Paperboard and others.
Laser coding can achieve a variety of marking effects from simple colour change to engraving, annealing, foaming and ablation. Which effect is achieved depends on the substrate material, laser source, wavelength, marking head and chosen lens.
Coding and marking systems for everyday industrial tasks
Large Character Inkjet Printers
Large character inkjet printers with 7-, 16- or 32-nozzle print heads are simple to operate, robust and highly flexible thanks to the modular design of the system components. Ideal for texts, data and logos with a print height of up to 140 mm per print head.
High Resolution Inkjet Printers
High-resolution inkjet printers, based on HP cartridge technology or Piezo technology, print 1D and 2D codes, logos and alphanumeric information in high quality and resolution - directly and contact-free.
Small Character Inkjet Printers
Small character inkjet printer based on continuous inkjet technology (CIJ) print codes, logos and alphanumeric information at high speed and with a very short drying time. Ideal for smooth, non-absorbent surfaces such as foil, plastic and metal.
Laser Marking Systems
Laser systems are suitable for sharp engraving markings on nearly any material and for color removal from all surfaces - abrasion-resistant, custom and forgery-proof. And these systems are nearly consumable- and maintenance-free.
Inks & Consumables
PACKMACHINE develops and markets more than 500 inks, paints, primers and cleaning agents for virtually every coding, marking and spray marking application worldwide. The use of original PACKMACHINE JET inks, paints, primers and cleaning agents guarantees reliable operation of the PACKMACHINE JET printing systems.
