Laser marking involves the marking of work pieces using a laser. The work piece material determines the process and energy requirements. Almost all materials can be marked with a laser.

Laser markings are water-proof, wipe-proof and extremely durable. They can be created quickly, automatically and for individual applications. Consequently, manufacturers from various industries use flexible and permanent laser marking as their preferred method for marking parts. Fiber lasers and CO2 lasers are the ideal radiation sources for the majority of laser marking applications.

Unlike other engraving processes, laser engraving is entirely contact free. The material is fused and evaporated by using only laser light.

There is no need to fix the workpiece in place during processing. High-precision 3D laser engraving can be produced using the ACLASER Software together with a laser control system, which is optimized for the relevant application, and high-quality optical components.This process is used especially for filigree texturing and engraving in molds, dies or coin minting stamps.

Laser cutting is now more effective and easier than ever before. Due to their compact design and high degree of flexibility, the ACSYS laser cutting centers are in a class of their own and are setting new benchmarks. Automatic distance control and highly dynamic linear motors guarantee extremely precise machining results in minimum time for sheet metal sizes up to 700 x 1000 m².

Additionally, a softwarecontrolled dividing head as a fourth rotary axis and a manually adjustable fifth axis can be used for interpolated laser cutting. This allows round parts to be machined.

Computerised engraving machines utilise different cutting tools, both rotating and non-rotating, to physically scribe, burnish or cut the chosen material to create a permanent mark. It is possible to create both 2D and 3D designs using computerised engraving machines.

The two most common cutters used with these machines are D-bit cutters, which are sharpened like a V and are spun during the engraving process in order to cut and engrave the material, and the other is a diamond tipped cutter, which is dragged along the surface of the material creating a scribe that is commonly used on different metals.

Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machines are available in many configurations, covering a multitude of machining applications and industries. Turning Centres (CNC Lathes) are predominately used for the processing of round components but also available with dual spindle and multiple axis, with driven tooling allowing additional machining possibilities such as cross drilling, milling and tapping.

Machining Centres (vertical, horizontal or universal) are predominately used for processing prismatic parts, and combine operations such as drilling, reaming, boring, milling, tapping and thread milling, which are available as 3, 4 or complex 5-axis simultaneous operation.

Engraving materials and consumables are designed for sign and engraving companies that require high-quality engraving substrates for badges, nameplates and ADA/wayfinding signage. These materials are available in either ABS plastic designed for rotary engraving or impact-modified acrylic designed for laser engraving.
