FASTEST LASER MARKINGS ON THE FLY
There are 2 trends in the cable and wire manufacturing industry related to marking technology. First, companies are looking for solutions providing permanent markings. Current inkjet technology does not offer that for manufacturers. Secondly, green initiatives and sustainable solutions are taking place in the cable and wire industry as well. Companies want to reduce the amount of harmful substances in the manufacturing and marking process. Therefore, a growing demand for alternative marking methods is a reality. Cajo laser technologies provides the ideal solutions to fit this need.
The laser solution is more reliable and there are much less scrap tubes because there are no more ink stains on the tubes. The text is more visible and there is much less maintenance need compared to previous systems. We haven’t got any idle time on the machine.

INDUSTRIAL CABLE AND WIRE LASER MARKING APPLICATIONS
The challenge in marking in the cable and wire industry is often dealing with marking on the fly combined with the material to be marked (cable outer jacket). The outcome of laser markings varies with different materials. Some materials absorb the laser beam well, while other materials can be challenging for lasers. Sometimes the challenge could be the material receipt, preventing good quality markings with a laser. However, that can be overcome with laser additives improving the marking contrast with the materials significantly. We have an evaluation process in place where we can test different technologies with different materials. Based on the outcome, we will propose to you the following steps, either being an offer on the right technology enabling good contrast markings or other recommendations in order to achieve the desired outcome.
