Laser Marking Plastic

We use digitally controlled precision lasers to create the perfect finish on a wide variety of plastics used across many different industries. Plastic laser marking and engraving is becoming more widespread in use, as the abundant variations in plastic types allow greater flexibility, and lasers can apply permanent marks without contact or the need for templates or consumables, making them environmentally and material friendly.

The differences in how plastics are made impact the type and effectiveness of laser marking or engraving and the flexibility in depth and colour of finish available. Our state-of-the-art machines can deliver perfect results against even the most intricate design brief, with the capability of marking areas over 300mm square down to characters sub 1mm, all perfectly formed and readable.
