Laser Marker LC500

 

LC500 quickly, simply and flexibly integrates into normal, and in particular, narrow and harsh production lines. Various types of data can rapidly be apllied on various kinds of materials and components with a high degree of quality and in a reliable manner: From packaging made from paper, cardboard and collapsible boxes to labels; from containers made of plastic and glass to PET containers; from electronic components and components used in the automobile industry to extruded work pieces such as pieces of rubber, pipes, profiles or door and window seals.

 

 

 

Main fields of application

Packing industry; extrusion; automobile industry; food and beverage industries; High-speed coding applications (serial marking, barcodes, 2D codes); Laser marking applications while the object is stationary or in motion (MOTF – marking on the fly)
