Gerber Gear, leading global supplier personal knives, multi-tools, and supplier of blades to the U.S. Military, was using outdated laser technology from a large laser manufacturer.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 in which multiple top laser marking systems manufacturers were considered through a series of prototyping tests. In the end, they chose Cajo Technologies due to their system’s unmatched marking sharpness and speed. Additionally, Cajo Technologies laser’s unique ability to mark vibrant colors on steel, titanium, and chrome without additives provided a singular benefit that now 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.
