Laser technology offers various methods for permanent marking and thus can be used in more diverse applications than conventional lettering methods. Whether metals, plastics, wood, or ceramics: nearly any material can be lettered, marked, or engraved permanently with a laser.
Advantages at a glance:
· Marking of different material types
· High automation and speed
· Force-free and contact-free processing
· Sharp images of high quality
· High design flexibility
· Cost reduction
Laser lettering can offer very good results even on rounded surfaces, and can be performed even on moving components (“marking on the fly”). Laser lettering can be generated quickly automatically and individually. Using this process, computer-aided control provides a large degree of flexibility for the form and content of the lettering.

Alphanumeric characters, graphics, logos, barcodes, etc. can be applied to components. Accordingly, laser lettering systems are used widely in the production of consumer goods and industrial products, in the automobile industry, machinery and plant assembly, and even for tool manufacture.
Permanent signatures are guaranteed even under the effect of vapor, oils, emulsions, and other fluids. Extensive software packages equipped with graphics-based user interfaces are used for control of the laser system. They make it possible to create texts, fill objects, insert pictures, create serial numbers, and display movements of the scanner.
