Laser Fiber-Series: Perfect solution to mark on metals. It allows a contrasted marking with a very short cycle time. No contact with the part. Different powers are available depending on your application and your target cycle time/marking depth.
Dot Peen Pneumatic: the marking solution with the best compromise between cycle time, depth and budget. It is perfectly adapted to mark a durable alphanumerical text.
See our dot-peen and laser marking machines.
Dot Peen Electromagnetic: the most adapted solution for marking on the catalytic converter. Content is usually combining text and Datamatrix. Marking depth is > 0.1 mm. Our Dot Peen Electromagnetic range will offer the best cycle time.
Laser Fiber-Series: the best solution for surface and contrasted marking on exhaust system components such as the muffler manifold and silencer.
Scribing: our scribing machines allows to obtain a deep and fast marking. It can be used before or after surface treatment, and remain legible. Choose this silent process for traceability on large parts.
Laser Fiber-Series: chassis part are getting lighter and the use of very hard material is more and more common. The fibre laser is a non-contact solution and can mark easily on the hardest metals.

Hybrid Laser Our laser range has a high peak power allowing a good material interaction on a wide range of plastics used in automotive components.
PE, PP, PA ,PBT and ABS plastics are generally marked by this laser range.
Green Laser the best solution for marking on materials that do not react to IR laser. This laser does not damage the surface of the part, it is perfectly adapted for marking of on Day & Night buttons where the green laser will remove the upper layer without damaging the plastic surface.
