The machine has been specially developed for labelling versatile materials and various component heights. The freely selectable label size is a special feature. A laser markable foil is used for the labelling process, which is conveyed on a roll by means of a feeder. The laser performs two tasks in this process. In one working step, the foil is marked and cut to the required format. This combines the advantages of labelling and laser marking. In addition, the marking system has a flexible quick-change nozzle system. This makes it possible to place different label sizes on a variety of materials in a single process.
