High Quality Laser Marking
Lasers are an extremely fast, cost-effective way to mark permanent codes onto products. With no consumables and easy implementation, Matthews’ laser coders get the high quality results you want, without the hassle.
With Matthews, you can implement laser coding solutions to apply human-readable text on both primary and secondary packaging, as well as barcodes. Because lasers can code onto glass, plastics (such as PET, polystyrene and polypropylene), metal and cardboard, they are ideal for a wide range of industries, from beverage, pharmaceutical and snack foods, through to industrial metals.
High Speed, Permanent Marking
If you need high quality permanent marks on your products, laser technology is the optimum solution. Lasers work by first ablating, then engraving the substrate. Ablation removes material from the area to be marked, such as a layer of metal or ink on printed packaging. Onto this fresh patch, the laser etches (or engraves) a very fine groove, resulting in an indelible mark.
Lasers are ideal for:
Applications where the mark must be permanent e.g. anti-counterfeiting, brand protection
Applications where product presentation is very important e.g. Wine industry
High-speed lines where cost of consumables may be very high
With no consumables, lasers offer a cost effective solution for high-speed lines. Investment payback can be less than three years on medium-volume production lines.
