Want to increase your ROI quickly? Laser markers are a valuable investment with a truly profitable return within a short amount of time. Our laser markers create durable marks that hold up to the elements that your tools, materials, and equipment are tested against on the daily.

Telesis builds tools for the most demanding manufacturers. You need reliability, precision, and proven effectiveness, and we can provide just that for your marking solutions in the construction and housing industry. Our equipment creates permanent marks, labels, and identification information on glass, stainless steel, hard metal, wood, plastic, composite products, rubber, vinyl, and more.

Laser Marking Systems for Construction & Housing

Fiber Lasers

Instead of gas, a fiber laser uses optical fiber made out of silica glass to get the job done. The fiber is “doped” when a rare-earth element is added to it. This level of beam is suitable for cutting a wide variety of materials, making it a stable choice over other lasers. A fiber laser can handle the bumps, knocks, vibrations, and general discord of any assembly line as well. The beam is straight and small, using precise focus and efficiency to create the mark.

Another benefit to fiber lasers are their tendency to stay safe from heat damage or fracture. This laser requires minimal maintenance for such an efficient system, making it well-suited for the construction and housing industry for laser etching leather and other materials.

Dual-Head Lasers

We developed a dual-head laser that eliminates the need for a mechanism to flip over the part in order to achieve two-sided marking. The core idea of this laser was to use a single controller to run two lasers, reducing the need for customers to manipulate a part. In turn, it allows customers to save time and money.

This innovative laser is suited for advanced applications that require rapid processing. Its unique ability to control two laser markers with the same controller is the industry’s only fiber laser system to be entirely air-cooled and powered from a single-phase power outlet.

CO2 Lasers

The CO2 laser is a great option for marking organic materials like wood, rubber, paper, and ceramic. It’s ideal for heavy industrial and high-duty cycle applications with proven flexibility and practicality. The CO2 lasers can laser engrave metal and can also be used for laser etching wood.

At the center, carbon dioxide has a density about 60% higher than dry air, making a beam that is suitable for cutting a wide variety of materials even outside of the construction industry.

UV Lasers

Ultraviolet laser markers offer damage-free versatility for a wide range of materials as well. It operates using “cold marking” when products are prone to damage or become aesthetically unacceptable when affected by heat. In addition, this laser eliminates additives when marking plastic or silicon materials and reduces the risk of micro-fracture when marking glass, solar panels, and other strong materials. It can be used for laser etching plastic, laser etching leather, and other substances. If you’re looking for a custom laser engraving or something to create laser etched acrylic, for example, the UV laser could be your best bet.

Today, the world wants to be greener and more sustainable. One of the first industries that was looked at was the construction and housing sector, as a few decades ago, the building sector used to make a lot of waste and use a lot of resources. Today that has changed as more construction companies find ways to reduce their carbon footprint through recycling, reducing waste and being energy efficient.

In construction, using laser marking machines is a step in that direction. Instead of using ink, printing heads and hundreds of different types of machines for different materials, everything can be done with a laser marking system. It facilitates the traceability of building materials’ entire lifecycles, and you can be compliant with regulations from organizations such as ASTM and ISO. There is no produced waste, and one machine can do a wide range of materials.

 

Materials That Can Be Marked

The following are some of the many materials that can be marked and coded for the building product industry.

  • Metal beams
  • Studs
  • Cement blocks and bags
  • Sheetrock or gypsum board
  • Brick
  • Roofing like metal, tile and slate shingle
  • Trusses
  • Doors
  • Window frames
  • Granite or stone slabs

 

Why You Should Use Laser Marking for Construction Materials

Laser marking technology offers a non-contact, permanent method for inscribing text, barcodes, serial numbers and even your business’s branding onto a number of materials. The reason why laser is used over traditional methods is because it offers a cleaner, more precise end result. Here are some key reasons why you need laser marking machines for house construction:

  • Traceability and quality control: You can find out the entire lifecycle and know everything about where the component comes from and how it’s been used. This traceability allows you to prevent potential construction failures and have quality control over all the equipment and materials.
  • Compliance with regulations: Materials and equipment need to be appropriately marked for regulations in the construction industry. It has to have information, compliance codes and so on, to indicate that the materials have been assessed and met the standards. Laser markings will not smudge, wear off or deteriorate over time.
  • Durability: Laser embeds the logo, code or information directly in the material without touching. It makes permanent marks on all types of material, regardless of whether they are porous or not. The result doesn’t corrode, smudge or wash away over time, making it one of the most durable marking options.
  • Customization: Put any type of information, lines, patterns or numbers on your material. You can create your logo, certifications, safety information, unique identifiers and complex designs.
  • Low maintenance: There are no printing heads, no ink and no waste. Lasers are quick to use and you can scale your production with ease once it is set-up. It is simple and easy.
