Laser marking is characterized by several advantages over other marking processes. Laser marking is a process that generally requires no mechanical intervention. As the tool is a massless laser beam that only works with wavelengths, there is no need to clamp the semi-finished product to be marked, which in turn significantly reduces set-up times.
Another advantage of laser marking is that, as a rule, no auxiliary and operating materials are required, which keeps both maintenance costs and investment costs low in the short and long term. With laser marking, only the material properties are changed, so that all types of marking or lettering are activated from the properties of the material, such as metal, wood or aluminum.
In addition, laser markers are largely wear-free means of production. Little mechanical work is required, which reduces the susceptibility to faults and therefore the maintenance intervals of the laser markers.
Finally, this marking process is characterized by its high flexibility. Information can be changed very quickly using laser marking software and output immediately on the material to be marked. Whereas in the past it was necessary to produce complex matrices with corresponding contours, today any contour can be scanned with the laser beam.
