The future of laser marking technology 


A complete system of hardware, software and accessories, the Murrplastik LM-3 laser printing system available from Murrelektronik, provides a cost-effective solution for producing quality, durable labels for a variety of applications, including identification and security marking of wires, cables, components, control panels or signalling equipment.

As technology has developed, laser marking has become faster, more accurate and thus more popular. Subsequently, this technology is now the preferred method for the permanent marking of metal and plastic labels in a diverse range of industry sectors. Tim Bradbury, UK Sales and Technical Engineer for Murrplastik Labelling Systems, explained: “I’m very confident that laser marking technology will continue to get more precise and more cost-effective in the future. The LM-3 is already at the forefront of this technology and offers a complete laser marking solution for companies and organisations looking for a faster, more accurate process for producing in-house labels and ID tags.”


Highly flexible

The LM-3 is so flexible and automated that it can label onto polycarbonate, polypropylene, adonised aluminium, stainless steel or laser foils, producing durable labels that are UV, acid, oil and chemical resistant. The LM-3 is able to function under extreme environmental influences and mechanical stress.

The LM-3 does not require any additional consumables such as printer cartridges, ink, thermal transfer ribbons or even toners. The whole inscription process is done by laser inside the unit.

Automated batch processing and marking software integration enables the LM-3 to perform at a high output. The magazine filling aid enables a smooth and time-optimised labelling process due to the parallel preparation of the magazine loading. The additional carrier plates are used to hold the variety of labelling materials.

Labelling material can be stacked directly in the labelling magazine. However, separator plates can also be inserted into the magazine. These allow mixed loading in one batch – various materials in different thicknesses, shapes and colours for different applications can be labelled. With the help of the mp-LM single-line adapter plates, part-used label frames can continue to be used. The Universal Marking software used with the mp-LM 3 can also operate other labelling technologies or devices: device-independent and process-optimised, time- and cost-saving, as well as intuitive and interactive.


With a dedicated UK Sales and Technical Team devoted to helping customers get the very best out of their Murrplastik hardware, it’s clear to see why Murrplastik is the number one choice for a flexible, cost-effective solution for the in-house production of industrial labels.
