Laser marking is a high-speed and non-contact process that is used to mark a variety of materials using focused laser sources. Laser marking can use a vector drawing process (like a pencil on paper) or a raster marking process to mark almost any pattern imaginable onto your parts including: text, graphics, barcodes, and 2D data matrixes. Unlike traditional marking processes, laser marking does not require any masks, inks, or custom machining bits to be used. This drastically decreases operating costs and reduces changeover time between different parts or designs.

Using industry leading laser sources, galvanometer beam control systems, and custom software, Control Micro Systems, Inc. (CMS Laser) manufactures custom-designed laser marking systems that uniquely combine speed, performance, and flexibility to meet your specific requirements.

Laser Marking of Glass

Lasers can be used to create an external or internal mark depending on your requirements. External laser glass marking creates etches on the outside surface of the part. Internal laser glass marking creates micro cracks inside the bulk of the glass while not affect the outside surface at all. 3D internal marks can also be achieved using a varying focal position.
