A marking laser is the ideal tool for engraving nameplates. Whether you need to install signs for legal reasons or simply require functional labels, a laser allows you to label self-adhesive materials, plastics and metals. It is equally suitable for standard sizes as well as unusual shapes or sizes.

Materials suitable for laser engraving

  • Plastics
  • Laminates
  • Acrylic plates
  • Coated metals, e.g. anodized aluminum
  • Stainless steel
  • and many more

Application examples for dataplates

Laser markings are durable and are resistant to abrasion, UV radiation, heat, cold, chemicals or alcohol. The precise laser beam makes it possible to apply fine details and even 1-point fonts on material that are clearly legible without laborious pre-processing. If you want to label one piece or several hundred, the cost per laser marking remains consistently low thanks to minimal maintenance and repair costs.

Laser Engraving Stainless Steel

This week we're going to show you the difference between laser engraving stainless steel directly with a Fiber laser, and annealing it with a CO2 laser using Cermark spray. Both methods can be used with our FLEXX technology that holds both laser sources in one machine!

The cable tags can be a great revenue stream for any engraving shop that wants to expand its business to new markets. These tags are made to be tied to cables or pipes and used for their longevity in any climate.

"I’ve been engraving since 1980 and finally decided to get my first laser engraving machine. Since buying the Speedy 300, I’m amazed with the speed, precision, ease of setup and overall performance over rival brands. I really like working with my Trotec Speedy 300 and would highly recommend it."
