Application examples for dataplates

Laser markings are durable and are resistant to abrasion, ultraviolet 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 readable without laborious pre-processing. If you would like to label one piece or several hundred, laser marking remains consistently low due to minimal maintenance and repair costs.
