For industrial businesses, a marking laser is the ideal technology for engraving plaques, dataplates, and many other applications. Whether you need to produce simple and functional labels, or install signage for legal reasons, laser marking allows you to customize self-adhesive materials, metals and plastics. Additionally, laser machines are the perfect solution for accommodating both standard sized materials as well as unusual shapes.

Materials suitable for laser marking and engraving

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

Application examples for dataplates

The process of laser marking materials provides a durable mark that is resistant to abrasion, hot and cold elements, UV radiation, alcohol or chemicals. The precise laser beam allows for fine details to be achieved, and even the smallest 1-point fonts are clearly legible. Laser machines are a contactless technology that saves consumers time and money due to the fact that no additional pre-processing or post-processing of materials are required. Additionally, thanks to the minimal repair and maintenance costs of laser’s, the expense per mark remains strikingly low regardless of job size.
