Laser Marking

Laser Marking & Engraving

Laser marking machines are used in a dynamic, highly adaptable process for the following:

  • High-speed character
  • Logo
  • Graphic
  • Bar code
  • 2D Data Matrix marking

 Laser engraving or marking is highly readable and leaves a permanent mark that enables effective traceability.

Marking Capabilities

SMARTmark® Laser Marking Systems provide a range of solutions for marking on a wide variety of materials, using methods such as:
  • Engraving
  • Carbon migration
  • Annealing
  • Layer removal
  • Discoloration  

Laser Source Types Per Material

Laser marking various materialsDepending on your application, you may require a fiber, CO2, or diode-pumped laser.

Fiber Lasers are versatile marking systems that mark the widest variety of parts, including:

  • Steel
  • Stainless steel 
  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Titanium
  • Plastics
  • Cast aluminum  
 They use an optical fiber doped with rare-earth elements such as ytterbium.

For a lower wattage laser that specializes in brighter, crisper marks on plastics and aluminum, MECCO offers a unique diode-pumped laser with patented diodes pumping YAG Crystal.  

This type of laser uses a higher peak power to removes paint, anodization and oxide 25-50% faster while brightening the base material significantly.

The CO2 Laser is a carbon dioxide continuous wave laser that is ideal for marking wood, glass, plastic and rubber.
