Laser Marking & Etching Systems
Laser marking systems can generate 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.
Videojet’s line of laser machines includes CO2 Lasers, Fiber laser and UV laser sources in a variety of power outputs to address a range of substrates and applications. In addition, Videojet offers a comprehensive 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.
With print speeds of up to 2,100 characters/second, Videojet High Performance CO2 lasers are an ideal solution to address high-speed and high-volume laser marking applications in the pharmaceutical, tobacco and beverage industries
With scribing laser technology and large marking fields, Light Duty CO2 laser marker provides excellent mark quality on paper, cardboard, plastics and other materials with top speeds up to 500 characters/second with excellent mark quality
Fiber lasers built for demanding production schedules in the Parts-Marking, Food, Beverage, Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) and Pharmaceutical industries that need a laser marking system to keep pace and provide a high-level of code contrast. With marking speeds up to 2,000 characters per second (with 6mm laser head)
Specifically engineered for high-density (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and synthetic fiber materials such as Tyvek, UV laser marker is ideal for pharmaceutical, medical and cosmetic manufacturers as the surface of the product remains undamaged and the code is resistant to abrasives, chemicals and sterilisation processes
What types of information can Laser Markers code?
Videojet laser marking machines can code a diverse range of different information and graphics onto products and packaging, including:
- Alphanumeric codes
- DataMatrix and QR codes
- Serial numbers
- Batch numbers
- Expiry dates
What different materials can be Marked with Lasers?
Videojet 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.
The lasers can achieve a variety of marking effects from simple colour change to etching, engraving and ablation. Which effect is achieved depends on the substrate material, wavelength, marking head and chosen lens.
