laser marking machine for metal


Metal marking that ensures traceability and regulatory compliance when coding on metal and plastic industrial parts.



Metal marking and printing on plastic industrial parts, used in the aerospace and automotive industries, is needed for a number of reasons, including 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.



Four different coding solutions, depending on your different needs when metal marking as untreated metal, painted metal or inkjet printing on industrial plastic parts, being them 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.

Bioplants Hot Melt Coding Cardboard Markem-Imaje
Xavier Bossard – Operations, Digital and Logistics Project Manager at Bioplants @ Bioplants

“The Markem-Imaje solution proposed to Bioplants was interesting because we could choose the criteria we needed: Before that, we were using a labeler, so one consumable item was created every time we labeled a package. Today we use hot melt ink directly projected on the cardboard allows us to add traceability to the packages, which we did not have before.”
