Barcode Engraving with a Laser Engraver

Laser engrave a table full of parts with serial numbers, barcodes or logos

Barcode Laser Engraving Systems

Laser engrave your barcodes, serial numbers, and logos with an Epilog Laser system. Our fiber laser systems directly engrave or mark any bare or coated metal including stainless steel, tool steel, brass, titanium, aluminum and much more, allowing you to create a variety of mark types in no time! Whether you’re engraving one piece at a time or a table full of components, with its easy setup process and precise marking capabilities, a fiber laser is an ideal choice for custom barcode engraving.

Engrave almost any metal

Engrave Almost Any Metal

Etch barcodes on all types of metals with a fiber laser system, including stainless steel, machine tool steel, brass, brushed aluminum, and more. To see how your material will work, let us know via our Materials Testing form and we’ll test it in our Applications Lab.

Barcode Multiple Parts at One Time

Create a jig to place your parts or labels and engrave barcodes on hundreds of pieces at one time. You can easily place your jig of parts into the machine either through the top window door or the front-loading access door.

Rotary Attachment in use

Change Your Home Position

Easily position your items for engraving. Use the top left corner as your home position, or move the laser head to a custom spot on the engraving table that will work best for your part/component.

Rotary Attachment Options

Laser engrave on cylidrical parts and tools with our two Rotary Attachment options: a Rim-Style Rotary with quick setup for simple shapes, and a 3-Jaw Chuck Rotary for precise etching.

Engrave Large Parts & Tools

Engrave barcodes even on your largest parts and tools – up to 48″ x 36″ x 12.25″ (1219 x 914 x 311 mm) with our Fusion Pro 48 laser machine. 5G acceleration, 165 inches per second speeds, and the IRIS™ Camera Positioning system make the Fusion Pro a great choice for production!

The Benefits of Owning an Epilog Laser Engraver


CAN I ETCH BARCODES ON LARGE ITEMS?

The unique flying-optic beam delivery of our systems provides an exceptionally large work area up to 40″ x 28″ (1016 x 711 mm)!

CREATE A HIGH QUALITY MARK

With the ability to engrave up to 1200 dpi images, barcodes can be engraved even at the smallest dimensions.

DESIGNED FOR EASE OF USE

There is no proprietary software with our barcode etching system. Setup the job in the design program of your choice and print to the laser.

ETCH MULTIPLE TYPES OF BARCODES

You can easily engrave 2D, Datamatrix, UPC, or any other type of barcode with a laser engraver from Epilog Laser.

WHAT IS THE LASER SOURCE?

The fiber laser laser source creates a laser beam with a 1062 nm wavelength – ideal for etching metal and marking plastic.

ENGRAVE MULTIPLE PARTS AT ONCE

Create a jig into which you can place your parts and engrave hundreds of barcodes at one time. No dedicated operator is required.

Barcoding and Industrial Marking e-Book

Over 50 pages of barcode engraving and metal etching information including a look at the different types of marks you can make with a laser, tips on how to reduce overall cycle times, what are the types of lasers for metal etching, and more.

Engraving is Easy!

Print to your laser from any graphics software

Laser machines work similarly to office printers, so the process is simple. Cutting and engraving with an Epilog is as easy as following these three steps: select your design and print, configure the laser for your material with speed and power settings, and push GO to laser it!
