Aluminum Extrusion Laser Marking
Aluminum extruders are facing new challenges as more and more programs demand that parts be marked as soon as they're off the press.
Since inkjet printers are not permanent and hence not suited for automotive programs, an increasing number of extruders are turning to laser marking to permanently etch data matrix codes and serial numbers.
Why Extruders Choose Laserax?
Meet New Automotive Standards
Laser marking provides reliable inline traceability without limiting the throughput of your extrusion press, allowing you to apply to automotive programs such as IATF 16949 and ISO 9001.
Automatically Identify Scrap
Our laser technology can serialize extrusions and identify scrap on the fly at the exit of the press.
Easily Adapt to Various Shapes
With our autofocusing technology, you can create high-contrast human readable characters and barcodes no matter the profile shape.
Lower Operating Costs
Reduce your operating costs to almost zero. While inkjet printing runs on expensive consumables and requires regular maintenance, laser technology runs on electrical power alone, is energy efficient, and requires little to no maintenance.

What Are the Challenges for the Extrusion Line?
Laser markers are already widely used to identify finished extruded parts. But marking extrusions directly on the press is more challenging. Here are the most important challenges that must be overcome for a successful integration.
