Industrial Laser Marking
Since the arrival of fiber and CO2 laser technology, the industrial sector has been shifting toward laser marking for part identification. And there are good indications this trend will continue. Today’s industrial lasers are better suited for production lines than other marking technologies like inkjet printing, dot peen marking, and printed labels. Since lasers are being continuously improved, laser etching and laser engraving processes are faster than ever, and the generated markings are more robust.
For most industrial marking applications, you either need laser etching or laser engraving.
Laser etching is the ideal marking solution for most applications because it creates permanent identifiers without affecting the cycle time. It’s mostly used in the primary metals industry, the metal fabrication sector (such as stamping and welding) and in assembly lines.
Laser engraving is slower but more robust than laser etching. This process is mostly found in automotive foundries like casting and forging plants, which rely on laser engraving machines to engrave workpieces at the start of the manufacturing process.

Industrial Fiber & CO2 Lasers
Laserax manufactures industrial laser markers that either contain a fiber or a CO2 laser source. Each type of laser can be used for various industrial applications. For example, you can use fiber lasers to mark steel, aluminum and other metals, but you can also use them to remove surface contaminants like paint, oxide, and rust. With CO2 lasers, you can mark various types of organic materials, including plastics and polymer.
Laser Engraving Machines & Systems
Our laser products include direct part marking systems and machines that can operate efficiently in challenging conditions and high-volume productions. They require very little maintenance, so downtime is kept to a minimum. Short cycle times won’t be an issue either, as our lasers are the fastest on the market. Our unique laser engraving technology generates high-quality, permanent markings that remain legible under all circumstances, including after surface treatments like shotblasting and e-coating.
OEM Laser Marking Systems
Our industrial marking systems include fiber and CO2 lasers. Fiber lasers are designed for metal marking applications. Our standard products have a laser power that ranges from 20 to 100 watts, while our high-power fiber lasers can go up to 500 watts.
Class-1 Laser Marking Machines
Our laser marking machines are standard turnkey solutions that can easily be integrated into existing production lines. These class-1 products are 100% laser safe and offer high performance in industrial conditions.
