Applications of the CM 800 C CO2 Laser Marking System Across Industries


In the packaging industry, various types of marking systems are used to print logos, information, and other products and packaging details. A few printers are listed below:

  • · Inkjet Printers sprays ink onto the packaging material through its nozzles. It can be continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers or drop-on-demand (DOD) inkjet printers.
  • Thermal Printers use heat to transfer ink from a ribbon onto the packaging material. Thermal printers are used for printing barcodes, text, and graphics on labels or flexible packaging.
  • Laser printers use a laser beam to create an image on a photosensitive drum, which is then transferred onto the packaging material. Laser printers are popular for their high-speed printing.

The choice of marking printer depends on factors such as the type of packaging material, required print quality, production volume, and budget constraints.

In this blog, we will discuss in detail about CM 800 C CO2 Laser Marking System from Cyklop India.

The CM 800 C CO2 Laser Marking System is an efficient solution for high-quality and high-speed printing in diverse production scenarios. It utilizes advanced CO2 laser marking technology and is suitable for food, beverage, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and extrusion industries.

CM 800 C CO2 Laser Marking System – what is its mechanism?

Intense heat is generated through the use of laser beam technology to create permanent marks on packaging materials. This laser, generated within a tube filled with a gas mixture, emits a focused beam through a series of mirrors and lenses. The laser follows a predetermined pattern to create precise marks on the material. This is done by a computerized system. Quality control measures ensure accuracy and it makes the CM 800 C CO2 laser marking system a reliable solution for marking various materials with precision and efficiency.
