Trend towards laser marking harbors potential for revenue and increased profitability
For many manufactures, the investment in a laser system based on low or unknown numbers of pieces isn’t even worth it. The easier and safer approach is to outsource it to another vendor. And this is the opportunity for job shops with the following advantages when using laser technology:
- Increase revenues and profits with efficient laser engraving: Affordable laser marking from single units to large batches
- Expand your service portfolio with additional technologies
- Easy marking for variable content such as codes or serial numbers
Lucrative source of income
Laser marking or engraving is a lucrative source of income since it involves no other variable costs (such as chemicals or sprays), besides wages. For manufacturers of products and components which need to be marked, variable costs from up to several euros per unit (depending on the extent of the marking) are perfectly justifiable since no investment or additional personnel costs arise.
Expand your service portfolio
The investment in marking lasers is often recouped within a year for specialized contract manufacturers. Especially established shops that have an existing customer base can either offer the same services at a less expensive rate (laser engraving instead of mechanical engraving) or expand their portfolio with new services.
With laser system manufacturer Trotec, contract manufacturers always find the right laser system for their application. Developed and built in Austria and Germany, Trotec sets new standards in terms of quality and user friendliness. In addition to the patented Speedy flexx laser engravers which allow incomparable flexibility thanks to two laser sources in one machine, Trotec also offers galvo laser workstations in all possible sizes.

The Speedy flexx laser engravers are equipped with both a CO₂ and a fiber laser. This allows incomparable flexibility thanks to two laser sources in one machine.
The SpeedMarker galvo laser markers are developed for efficient laser marking of metals and plastics along the industrial production chain. Thanks to the SpeedMark marking software, all marking requirements that might come up in industrial production can be simply and intuitively fulfilled. The software is particularly suitable for automated marking processes and covers all processing steps from importing dates and graphics to serialization and right up to the generation of codes (data matrix codes, barcodes, etc.).
