To make the right choice


When choosing your laser, you will not simply be acquiring a wattage! No. You will be acquiring the capacity to interact on the material you wish to mark.

To varying depths, with greater or lesser contrast and as quickly as possible of course… all without risk for your operators. To achieve this, you need to give thought to:

  • The concentration capacity of the beam: it is of paramount importance that the beam is of high quality, so that it can be focused as tightly as possible.
  • The wavelength. Depending on your material, not all wavelengths are equally efficient.
  • The energy for pulsed lasers and power for continuous lasers.
  • The peak pulse power. Beyond Watts or Joules, you ought to know that if you buy a pulsed laser, average power is less important than peak power.
  • The deviation system. Whether marking a small or very wide area of your part, the choice of deviation system is crucial.
