Laser engraving machines are one of the most versatile technologies for processing a wide variety of materials in many different industries, including the growing automotive industry. Whether you're seeking a solution for custom branding and marking on automotive parts or looking to offer customized services to your customers, AP Lazer’s versatile laser engraving machine for the auto industry is your answer.
Until now, traditional ‘boxed-up’ laser systems have not caught the eye of the auto industry. Why not? The answer lies in the design of the machine.
Traditional style laser systems are only capable of engraving, marking and cutting small, lightweight objects. In these laser systems, the laser tube is housed in the home base of the machine. AP Lazer opens up engraving possibilities by housing the laser tube in the top, back of the machine. These laser machines provide unlimited applications for the auto industry, where most parts are heavy and bulky. AP Lazer’s patented open architecture and two-part design has changed all of that.
Originally designed to engrave large granite monuments and wooden caskets, AP Lazer’s design has caught the eye of many other industries seeking ways to simplify processes or add customization to the products they manufacture.
From cutting the excess off large plastic parts, customizing engine covers to branding small parts such as belts or gas caps, the possibilities are endless. AP Lazer’s unique design provides the ability for an engine block, a transmission, a car door, and even fabric or leather seats to be engraved by the laser beam. Many materials can be permanently marked or engraved with a laser machine including metal, plastics and acrylic, rubber, vinyl, leather, wood and much more. Laser marking and engraving doesn't require inks or other chemicals, making it a clean and cost-efficient method of marking your products. Bottom line, if you are looking to customize auto parts in a new way, streamline your production or brand your products, AP Lazer is the tool you need.

Röchling Automotive in Akron Ohio engineers and manufactures components and systems by utilizing high-performance plastics. Roeschling has taken advantage of AP Lazer’s two-part design by integrating the removable laser top directly into their conveyor system. A radial robotic arm removes a large plastic part from an injection mold, places it directly beneath the 100w Co2 AP Lazer, cutting the plastic piece with precision and accuracy. The robotic arm then moves the part back to the production line after the excess of the plastic has been removed. The integration of the AP Lazer system has not only improved cutting quality but also reduced the production cost, as the plastic parts no longer need to be cut manually.
