Halton Marine replaced CO2 laser by Cajo laser marking system
Halton Marine is a global technology leader in indoor air solutions for demanding spaces. Their products include marking plates tailored by customer needs. Previously the plates were made by CO2 laser technology that requires ionization. Laser marking solution provided by Cajo does not require any additives nor pigments what brought direct savings for Halton Marine.
Halton Marine´s products include marking plates tailored by customer needs. Previously the plates were made by CO2 laser technology that required ionization with CerMark laser spray or similar. The additive raised the running costs with more than 5000 € annually, decreasing the return on investment. As the fiber laser of Cajo does not require ionization the business savings are considerable. The solution is ecologically sustainable as no additives or pigments are used. The markings done with Cajo laser are virtually eternal and they do not affect to the acid endurance of the material. 85% of the Halton Marine’s plates are acid resistant material (EN 1.4404-1.4438). The patented marking technology of Cajo allows black markings on stainless steel, what was top priority for Halton Marine.
Flexibility and speed of the marking equipment were also considered as top features. Halton Marine´s marking volumes are around 50 000 plates annually, and there can be over a dozen different marking plates for different components. Cajo´s laser marking solution speeded up the marking process by decreasing it into 1/3 of the time needed with the previous marking solution. In addition, Cajo´s laser marking system has an easy-to-use user interface which makes the changing of the marking files fast.
