The Fastest Coding in the West (or North, South and East)
We’ve Got Your Numbers
filtec’s Lasetec III steered beam laser coding system is a quantum leap in high-speed laser marking and coding technology. It makes consistent permanent clear marks directly on the product without ink or other chemicals. Marking is also possible on certain round or uneven surfaces.
The Lasetec III is the fastest in the industry. It consistently produces clear and crisp characters even when printed at speeds up to 1,500 containers per minute or 350 meters per minute on labels. This is true with serial numbers, batch codes, foreign characters or graphics – regardless of orientation.
All the Best Features
- Visible beams for focus adjustment and customer preview.
- PET or new HDPE laser tube options.
- Weihenstephan, OMAC protocol and ethernet connectivity.
- In-labeler interface.
- Dirty/blocked lens detection option.
- Air pressure monitoring.
- Moving print head option replaces embossing applications.
- Modular remote head for confined space mounting, and more.
Versatile and Built to Last
The Lasetec III produces precise letters, bar codes and graphics on a wide range of substrates including cartons, labels, pouches, plastic and glass – making it ideal for a wide variety of applications. It features IP 65 and NEMA 4X construction, and a sealed and pressurized design for high dust or clean room environments. All replacement parts are plug & play with no re-calibration required.
New HDPE Tube Laser Marking Capability
filtec leads the way in laser tube application, providing new solutions for market needs. In response to customer demand, filtec developed a laser tube specifically tuned for HDPE marking applications. This application offers the ability to mark faster with higher visibility than any other system available. The HDPE tube can be retrofitted into any existing Lasetec III without the need for re-calibration – giving users the ability to repurpose current equipment or transfer it among production lines.

The Lasetec III laser coder makes consistent, permanent, crisp and conspicuous marks directly on products without contact, ink or other chemicals – at up to 1,500 containers per minute or 300 meters per minute. This is true whether your need is to mark with serial numbers, batch codes, foreign characters or graphics – regardless of orientation.
The Lasetec III can mark on a wide range of material including blister packs, cartons, cases, components, labels, PCBs, pouches, plastics, flexible packs/flow wrap, glass and vials and cans, tablets and capsules for applications in most industries.
filtec works closely with producers of soft drinks, beer, wine, spirits, sports and other drinks and water to provides reliable, high speed cost effective solutions in thousands of plants worldwide – often integrating its laser code equipment with other equipment on the line such as in-labeler solutions. The Lasetec III produces high-quality laser codes on PET, labels, glass, caps, pouches, tetrapak, cans and crates. Special PET laser code technology produces laser codes with a frosted effect that’s easier to read, reduces the risk of container damage and can be applied at fast line speeds.
filtec’s coding technologies meet the demands of the health, beauty and personal care industries where product appearance and branding are key factors. The high-resolution print quality of the Lasetec III allows the operator to produce precise codes that fit within tightly prescribed design parameters to assure brand integrity. The Lasetec III applies codes to a wide variety of packaging including glass, flexible packs, plastic, tubes and cartons. Since it does not contact the surface, it can reliably mark round and uneven surfaces, and can also print real-time and variable data, graphics and bar codes.
The Lasetec III allows food manufacturers to apply letter-quality codes safely and reliably on a diverse range of packaging materials including glass, plastics, cans and cartons – in the most challenging production environments that include regular wash downs and frequent changeovers. Clarity of print quality even at the highest of production speeds ensures that codes are easily read by customers – whether they are simple date codes or complex variable text, graphics, barcodes or data matrix codes. To assure conformity with packaging requirements, the Lasetec III can apply permanent codes in any orientation without contacting the surface – making it possible to apply perfect codes on curved or uneven surfaces without compromising food safety. For added peace of mind the Lasetec III includes a code verification feature.
The Lasetec III produces consistent, high-resolution coding on most packaging types used in the pharmaceutical, medical, vision care, veterinary and consumer healthcare industries including blister packs, cartons, labels, plastic, glass, tablets, capsules and cases. The Lasetec III makes permanent clear marks directly on the product without making contact and without ink or other chemicals. Because there is no contact with the product, it can print real-time and variable data, graphics, bar codes (including RSS and 2D Data Matrix) on flat, round or uneven surfaces. Tracking packets from manufacturer to consumer is a very important requirement in the pharmaceutical industry. The Lasetec III can receive any string of data, convert it into a 2D data matrix code, print 2D data matrix, and be implemented into a vision verification system.
