Metal and plastic industrial parts, used in the aerospace and automotive industries, are coded for a number of reasons, including for brand and part identification, traceability, anti-counterfeiting measures, and regulatory compliance. Some applications may require that the parts be static while the printhead moves, others that the parts are in motion while the printhead remains fixed.
We offer four different coding solutions, depending on your different needs when coding metal as untreated metal, painted metal or hard plastic or rubber parts, or other related substances.
Our line of SmartLase laser coders comes in four different wavelengths, with the shortest wavelength working well on bare metal and the others more suitable for high contrast printing on painted metal and some plastics.
For plastics not compatible with lasers, we also offer continuous inkjet, thermal inkjet and valvejet printer technologies using dedicated inks. Each of these printers has unique advantages.
