Laser marking of products and electronic components

Traceability of products

Serial numbers and codes are used for tracing products from the manufacturer through to the end user. QR codes and barcodes have therefore become indispensable in the logistics industry and in trade. International guidelines and standards, such as UID, GS1, ASTM, UPC and EAN, generally require the use of codes for marking products in international goods traffic.

Laser marking as permanent identification

Laser marking is ideally suited for coding products, components and packaging, above all thanks to the precision and durability it provides. Marking with the laser is gentle on the material and at the same time extremely resistant to mechanical stress, light or weather influences. Your code markings and serial numbers thus remain well legible for the scanner throughout the dispatch route.

Marking lasers from Trotec

Trotec marking lasers ensure precise marking and stand out by their long service life. In addition, our marking software facilitates the generation of consecutive codes. Trotec marking lasers are suited for product identification and electronic component marking with serial numbers, barcodes, QR codes, datamatrix codes and many other types of coding.



Use our marking lasers for marking cardboard, foils and films, metal, paper, plastics and many other materials with codes and serial numbers.

Why Trotec

Contact-less and process-reliable material processing

Processes, such as mechanical engraving or hot stamping of metals, require secure clamping and often fixation by vacuum of the material. When working with the laser, no pressure is exerted on the material (no clamping or any other type of fixation). This saves time and money during material processing and guarantees always consistent results.

Extremely easy to use

Trotec laser machines are as easy to use as a printer. Work in your usual graphics or Windows programs. Or use the Trotec Job Creator that facilitates easy type-setting and supports the automatic generation of series engravings. Our innovative JobControl® software allows for intuitive use and gives you complete control of all laser functions. Engraving and cutting is almost as easy as printing.

Flexibility at all levels

Many materials require different treatment by the laser in order to achieve optimum results. For your maximum flexibility, we offer you the unique Flexx function that allows you to process all materials with one single system, for which you would need two machines from other laser manufacturers.

Incredible design possibilities

Virtually any design can be realized with the laser. Even 1-point font sizes and extremely small geometries can be implemented and are still well legible. This gives you complete freedom when designing labels, logos, designs, barcodes or serial numbers. Even photographs can be realized on a wide range of materials in the shortest possible time.

Keeping an eye on time and costs

With the job time calculator, you can calculate the anticipated engraving and cutting duration even before starting the laser. This makes production planning and the calculation of your engraving and cutting costs easier for you. In addition, the Trotec software records the jobs you have completed. Thus, even the calculation afterwards is easy as child's play.

Maximum precision

You only have one attempt for the precise marking of high-quality electrical devices. In the process, Trotec laser engraving machines support you with a laser pointer that indicates the position of the marking on the workpiece. Moreover, the easy-to-use laser software JobControl permits you to align your graphics absolutely accurately on the working surface. Before starting the engraving process, the laser pointer indicates the surface where the engraving is to be applied. Every engraving will thus be a success.

Resistant direct marking

Laser marking is abrasion-, heat- and acid-resistant. Depending on the laser parameter settings, even markings without any detectable recess on the surfaces can be realized (quenching) on certain materials (stainless steels or titanium, among others).

Robust and durable

Trotec laser machines are built for intensive use over many years and therefore have a particularly rugged design. Moreover, we only use components of the highest quality from leading manufacturers that ensure reliability and a constant high quality.
