Technology Overview

Across every kind of industry and every kind of production line, Co2 laser marking machines are already being used to code and mark every kind of surface – coding on anything from glass to plastic and even marking coated metals.

Laser coding is one of the most reliable, versatile and cost-efficient marking methods available. Download our laser brochure here.

This makes laser marking machines ideal for high print volumes – such as food, drink and pharmaceutical products – where it creates easy traceability.

A concentrated beam of light is deflected by mirrors through a lens to form characters.

Laser coding and marking is achieved by removing material or a coating from the product or packaging, or by changing the surface of the substrate. In each case, the code is permanent.

On painted card, the top microns of paint are removed to reveal the contrasting bare card beneath. On plastic, the chemical nature is either changed by the laser to cause a colour change, or melted to leave a visible mark. When glass marking, the laser code consists of micro cracks which create a clear, permanent code but which do not compromise the integrity of the packaging.

With accuracy guaranteed, laser coding gives you 24/7 operations without the need for manual intervention. And with a Linx SL laser coder you get a better return on your investment.

Linx Fibre lasers can permanently mark on a wide range of materials, including metal, rubber, plastic, and packaging foils.The very fine spot size creates excellent quality codes and makes Linx Fibre lasers ideal for marking very small components, or large amounts of information onto small areas.

We work with you to configure your new laser marking machine for optimum power consumption and the most efficient use of the laser tube so it lasts longer. So, with less downtime and less maintenance, you’ll benefit from lower costs for all your laser marking and coding requirements.
