Laser Marking Video
This video demonstrates a Schmidt laser system marking on various parts and materials. Schmidt's Microlase® laser systems provide a fast, flexible and efficient way to permanently mark and engrave a wide variety of materials such as, aluminum, steel, stainless steel, titanium, copper, brass and more, as well as, ceramics, and organics.
Laser Marking System Technologies:
Schmidt Microlase® industrial laser marking and laser engraving systems are available in a variety of laser sources, wavelengths and wattages. Schmidt manufactures fiber, CO2, and diode laser marking systems that include infrared, green, and UV lasers and range in wattage from 3 watts to 200 watts. Schmidt Microlase® laser systems require almost no maintenance, and can be operated with our easy-to-use Windows-based software.

Laser System Enclosures, Options & Accessories
Below are some examples of system options and accessories. Schmidt can custom design a laser system to fit your specific part sizes, marking field requirements, enclosure style needs, or any other system aspect specific to your application.
Laser Marking System Enclosures: Custom Examples
Schmidt's in-house engineering department can custom design any type or size of enclosure to best fit your marking application. Below are just a few examples of some of the laser enclosures we have manufactured for our customers.
|This compact economical enclosure features a small foot print with a manual interlock door for light tight safety, and is perfect marking smaller parts. Part fixturing or marking trays can be custom designed to allow several small parts to be marked during the same cycle.|
|This economically designed laser enclosure features a manual operated hinged door with safety interlock and self contained rack mounted controls.|
|This free standing laser enclosure features a manual operated door with safety interlock, manual z-axis for height variance adjustment in part sizes. A rear interlock door for convenient access to the laser head and lens. A side mounted monitor and internal slide out drawer for keyboard & mouse. All manual features can be upgraded to automatic and powered options.|
|This large enclosure was custom designed to handle parts up to 7 feet long. It features dual sliding interlock safety doors for ease of part placement and convenient access to the laser head and lens. This enclosure is mounted on a mobile cart for ease around the shop floor.|
|This custom laser enclosure features a two position rotary indexing table so one set of parts can be loaded outside of the enclosure while another set of parts are being marked. The indexing table is equipped with anti-tie-down dual palm controls for operator safety.|
|This enclosure is equipped with a power Z axis for automatic height variance in part sizes, a manual front facing door, and a rotary fixture for laser marking round parts. It also features two side panels for convenient access to the laser components.|
|This enclosure features a shuttle table that slides outside of the enclosure to ease the placement of heavy parts onto the marking field table. There is also a large full access side interlocked door for convenient access to the laser head and lens.|
|This laser enclosure features a manual z-axis, and a manual door equipped with anti-tie-down dual palm controls for operator safety. There is also a removable side panel for convenient access to the laser components.|
|This laser enclosure features a 24 inch wide pneumatic door, and a power z-axis for automatic height variance in part sizes. There is also a removable side panel for convenient access to the laser head and lens.|
|This laser enclosure features a two position rotary indexing table so one set of parts can be loaded outside of the enclosure while another set of parts are being marked. The indexing table is equipped with anti-tie-down dual palm controls for operator safety. There is also a large front access manual door giving the operator the option to hand place larger parts into the marking field without using the index table.|
|This compact name plate shuttle feed system comes with a light tight enclosure over the laser marking area. Name plate tags are shuttled from the de-stack magazine into the laser marking cabinet. Once the marking cycle is complete, the tags are then shuttled out of the enclosure into the re-stack magazine.|
|This smaller sized laser enclosure is complete with a powered Z-axis for automatic height variance in part sizes, an automatic interlock door, and two removable side panels for convenient access to the laser head and lens.|
Laser Marking System Software:
Schmidt offers two powerful, yet easy to use Windows-based software package for its Microlase® laser marking systems.
The laser source and power selection will determine which software package is best suited for the laser system and will come in two variations:
- The software is installed on the PC that will run the laser marking system.
- The software is integrated into the laser controller and a PC is not required.
For more information see our laser marking software page.
Laser Marking System Capabilities:
Schmidt manufactures industrial laser marking systems which are commonly used for laser marking part identification and product traceability such as 2d data matrix, 1d and 2d barcodes, material flow, graphics, logos, date codes, serial numbers and more. Our laser marking systems come standard or can be customized to fit your part marking application including integrated systems for 2d part marking, reading and verifying.
Schmidt high power industrial laser marking systems are also used in non-marking applications such as cutting, drilling, and patterning for processing of materials such as thin sheets, ceramics and silicon.
Schmidt's Microlase® laser systems provide a fast, flexible and efficient way to permanently mark and engrave a wide variety of materials such as, metals, nonmetals, ceramics, and organics. Schmidt laser marking systems and laser engraving machines offer high processing speeds and consistent high quality marks.
Schmidt's laser marking systems and laser engraving machines have a number of advantages over other forms of part marking equipment. Laser marking is a non-contact form of engraving and therefore significantly minimizes the stress and potential damage to your parts. Schmidt lasers are specially designed with your 2d part marking traceability needs in mind to help you increase the end value of your products.
Our Microlase® fiber laser marking systems, CO2 laser marking systems and our diode laser marking systems can function as stand alone offline marking systems that are mounted in a safety interlocked Class I certified enclosure or they can be integrated into your production line to mark on the fly or as a fixed stop and go operation.
Schmidt is proudly ISO certified and FFL licensed.
