Sustainable Cajo MakeBright™ product marking technology saves Packaging Manufacturers’ valuable resources

Cajo Technologies introduces cost-effective Cajo MakeBright™ laser marking technology for the Packaging Industry. Cajo’s pioneering technology replaces ink and labels sustainably in cardboard packaging applications. The transition helps manufacturers reduce carbon emissions in industrial labelling, increases production line efficiency and speed, and maximises cost-effectiveness.

This month, Packaging Europe published an insightful article about Cajo MakeBright™ – a brand-new cost-efficient product marking and coding technology of Cajo Technologies. In this article, we dive deeper into the revolutionary technology already gathering interest among the top Packaging Manufacturers in the world.

In short, Cajo MakeBright™ is a cost-effective new way to produce precise and permanent product markings on cardboard more sustainably than ever before. Cajo’s patent-pending and pioneering laser marking technology enables fast marking without any additives, saving Packaging Manufacturers’ time, money and other valuable resources.


Cajo MakeBright™ patent-pending technology enables high-quality, precise and permanent markings without any additives thanks to ecological Cajo Laser.


Cajo MakeBright™ is capable of cost-efficiently lightening the surface for text and logos and then darkening modules or bars in 1D and 2D codes to ensure maximum readability and achieve A-grade results against ISO 29158 (AIM-DPM). Thanks to zero ink and maximum recyclability, Cajo MakeBright™ is the most sustainable marking solution in the world offered to Packaging Industry manufacturers exclusively by Cajo Technologies.

Cajo MakeBright™ replaces the need for ink or labels for marking tertiary packaging. As proven by a ground-breaking study by Macon Ltd. in 2020, replacing an inkjet marking method with a Cajo Laser gives manufacturers an opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint of industrial labelling by over 90 %. In addition, choosing Cajo Laser gives manufacturers numerous other benefits thanks to its cutting-edge qualities.



Cajo’s comprehensive laser marking systems and intelligent software are available for virtually any product marking purpose. They are designed to improve all possible production processes, replacing all outdated and wasteful marking methods globally with cost-efficient automated solutions.  Lower operational costs give manufacturers the winning edge they have been waiting for in a highly competitive market.

The success of Cajo has been built on recognising diverse customer challenges and developing superior solutions to overcome these obstacles. As proof the formula is working, Cajo’s high-quality and environmentally friendly laser marking systems have already been sold and are running in more than 60 countries worldwide. Among Cajo’s customers are many international market leaders in their industry with more manufacturers choosing laser every day.

Cajo’s remarkably cost-efficient lasers and flexible software solutions are available for all industrial marking purposes, covering the needs for traceability, identification, and product markings, with an extremely short payback time. Together with Cajo’s powerful control board, the laser marking system gives manufacturers complete control of the marking process.

In addition, laser marking is the most cost-effective and sustainable way to mark virtually any material. By choosing Cajo Lasers manufacturers worldwide can improve production processes and save not only costs but the environment as well.


Sustainable technology replaces inkjets and labels

Removing consumables such as ink, ribbon, and labels from the production process enables manufacturers to reduce operating costs but also frees up cash tied up in stocking these extra items. Laser is a reliable alternative with only a few moving parts. This means lasers do not require a significant stock of spares. This further increases the savings and convenience manufacturers gain by choosing a laser.

Laser is generally recognised as the most reliable coding and marking technology, which means fewer breakdowns and less maintenance, both planned and unplanned, required. There are very few parts susceptible to wear and tear in a laser with no pumps or gears or pulleys needed. A reliable laser gives manufacturers the opportunity to significantly improve line performance and OEE. Orders can be completed smoothly in line with schedules improving delivery performance.

High-quality, precise and permanent markings

Reliable Cajo lasers achieve high-quality marking results time and time again. The quality of laser-marked codes remains consistently the same, enabling vision applications to work best with laser-marked products. As a result, the number of rejects for unreadable codes will be significantly reduced. Cajo also promotes a circular economy thanks to additive-free technology making products easier to recycle. Reducing waste and improving recyclability not only helps with costs and efficiency but also boosts sustainability – fewer scrapped products mean fewer resources wasted.


Fast marking on the fly for mass production lines

Laser has a distinct advantage over print-and-apply labellers as they require manufacturers to regularly stop the production line to replace rolls of labels and ribbons and then clean the rollers. This can add up to hours of lost production per month. Laser, on the other hand, is an extremely low-maintenance, cost-effective, and fast modern solution for manufacturers who wish to improve their production processes.

Cajo offers several types of laser marking solutions that can be integrated smoothly into high-speed production lines or used as stand-alone workstations for manually loaded parts. Superior Cajo lasers ensure fast marking on the fly with precise and permanent markings made possible even for challenging materials.

In Cajo’s over a decade-old history, more than 4,000 materials have been tested and optimized for a comprehensive parameter library for easy use.
