Gerber Gear updated blade marking capabilities with Cajo´s laser marking system

Gerber Gear is an American brand that is dedicated to crafting problem-solving, life-saving knives, multi-tools, cutting tools, and equipment. They were already using laser marking machine, but were dissatisfied by frequent machine break down and bad marking quality. Cajo was approved as new marking system provider through series of proto test markings. Cajo´s unique ability to mark colors on stainless steel without additives was counted as top benefit.

Gerber Gear, a leading global supplier of personal knives, multi-tools, and supplier of blades to the U.S. Military, was using outdated laser technology from a large laser manufacturer. They felt their markings were not precise enough to match the quality of their products and were frustrated by frequent machine break down.

Gerber conducted a diligent selection process where multiple top laser marking manufacturers were considered through a series of prototyping tests. In the end, Gerber Gear chose Cajo due to Cajo laser´s unmatched marking sharpness and speed. Additionally, Cajo laser’s unique ability to mark vibrant colors on steel, titanium, and chrome without additives provided a singular benefit. It allows Gerber Gear to permanently mark full-color graphics directly on their blades.

The solution implemented was two Cajo laser marking systems configured with an automatically rotating table. This update to their production line allows new levels of speed and accuracy in Gerber Gear’s production process without machine maintenance or down time.
