SATO brings revolutionary laser marking technology to Asia

Nov. 3, 2015
A newly launched subsidiary will market a CO2 laser coding and marking technology in Japan and the Asia-Pacific region.

Auto-ID solutions provider SATO (Tokyo, Japan) has launched a new subsidiary, SpeciaLase Limited, to market a revolutionary CO2 laser coding and marking technology that will operate in Japan and the Asia-Pacific region.

SATO acquired the exclusive sales rights for this laser coding printing technology and pigment in Japan and the Asia-Pacific region from DataLase, a UK provider of materials for laser coding and marking products and packaging, as well as acquired a significant stake in the company.

The laser coding process offers a high-quality and cost-effective alternative to traditional labels and printing methods. It utilizes a nontoxic and environmentally friendly coating that provides a stable, high-contrast, high-quality, and durable image on virtually any substrate using low-power CO2 lasers.

The process has applications across a range of industries, including pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, and all types of fast-moving consumer goods. It can print everything from barcodes to variable information to images and graphics. Key benefits include high-speed, high-contrast print quality; low cost, as it eliminates consumables; reduced need for maintenance and downtime, thanks to highly reliable CO2 lasers; and its on-demand capability that enables late-stage customization. SpeciaLase will also forge business partnerships with laser and ink manufacturers, sell coding agents and equipment, and develop new solutions to utilize the technology.
