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.  


See the laser marking applications in action in the MECCO Video Library, where our laser marking systems are demonstrated adding barcodes, text and logos on a variety of materials.
