The patented laser marking technology of Cajo Technologies enables fast marking without any additives

The new patent-pending laser marking technology of Cajo Technologies, enables manufacturers to improve production processes and lower operational costs. The comprehensive laser marking systems and software are available for virtually any product marking purpose. The laser marking system gives manufacturers complete control of the marking process.

Cajo MakeBright is designed to replace the need for ink or labels for marking tertiary packaging. As proven by a study by Macon in 2020, replacing an inkjet marking method with a Cajo laser provides manufacturers with a 90% reduction of carbon footprint of industrial labelling.

Cajo MakeBright lightens the surface for text and logos and then darkens modules or bars in 1D and 2D code. This is done to ensure maximum readability, and to be able to achieve A grade results against ISO 29158 (AIM-DPM).

Cajo’s patented technology and laser marking systems are designed to improve all possible production processes, replacing outdated marking methods globally with cost-efficient and automated solutions. The company’s success has been built on recognising diverse customer challenges and developing superior solutions to overcome these obstacles. 

The system is already sold to and running in more than 60 countries worldwide. Among Cajo’s customers are many international market leaders in their industry with more manufacturers choosing lasers every day.

The lasers and flexible software solutions are available for all industrial marking purposes, covering the needs for traceability, identification, and product markings, with short payback time.

Removing consumables, such as ink, ribbon, and labels, from the production process, enables manufacturers to reduce operating costs but also frees up cash tied up in stocking these extra items. Laser is a reliable alternative with only a few moving parts. This means lasers do not require a significant stock of spares and further increases the savings and convenience manufacturers gain by choosing a laser.

Laser is generally recognised as the most reliable coding and marking technology, which means fewer breakdowns and less maintenance, both planned and unplanned, required. There are very few parts susceptible to wear and tear in a laser with no pumps, gears or pulleys required. A reliable laser gives manufacturers the opportunity to significantly improve line performance and OEE.

Precise and permanent markings
The quality of laser-marked codes remains consistently the same, enabling vision applications to work best with laser-marked products. As a result, the number of rejections for unreadable codes will be significantly reduced. Reducing waste not only helps with costs and efficiency but also boosts sustainability - fewer scrapped products mean less resources wasted.

Fast marking on the fly for mass production lines
Laser has a distinct advantage over print and apply labellers as they require manufacturers to regularly stop the production line to replace rolls of labels and ribbons and then clean the rollers. This can add up to hours of lost production per month. Laser, on the other hand, is an extremely low-maintenance, cost-effective and fast modern solution for manufacturers who wish to improve their production processes.

Cajo offers several types of laser marking solutions that can be integrated smoothly into high-speed production lines or used as stand-alone workstations for manually loaded parts. Superior Cajo lasers ensure fast marking on the fly with precise and permanent markings made possible even for challenging materials. In Cajo’s over a decade-old history, more than 4,000 materials have been tested and optimised for a comprehensive parameter library for easy use.

Manufacturers who want to improve line performance, reduce operational costs and money tied up in stock, while making a positive change for the planet can get the comprehensive marking and coding solution from Cajo.
