Schreiner ProTech Plays Key Role in New Laser Marking System From Primera

Laser marking and printing system combined with Schreiner Protech’s Color Laser Film for turnkey, single-source solution

Published: Wednesday, September 29, 2021 - 12:00

(Schreiner ProTech: Blauvelt, NY) – Schreiner ProTech, a Germany-based global leader in developing and manufacturing innovative functional labels with value-added benefits for the automotive and engineering-based industries, will play a key role in a new laser marking system from Primera, a manufacturer of specialty printing equipment. A laser-markable film whose benefits include high durability and emission-free marking, Schreiner ProTech’s Color Laser Film is now being utilized for Primera’s Catalyst Laser Marking Systems series, characterized by its efficient laser marking process, digital die-cutting, and affordable purchase price.

Primera’s Catalyst Laser Marking Systems series will exclusively use Schreiner ProTech’s CLF material, a proven and well-established product in the market due to its high quality, durability and robust scratch resistance.

Printer and label: everything from a single source

The cooperation between Schreiner ProTech and Primera results in an optimal overall package with numerous advantages. Consumers are privy to the combined benefits of a high-quality laser marking system and the Color Laser Film, which meets exacting requirements typically available only in large quantities and at far higher costs.

The Catalyst Laser Marking Systems allows fast and easy production of highly durable, synthetic labels for a wide range of rough-service applications. Labels produced with lasers, including Catalyst, are typically used to replace metal plates or far less durable labels produced by resin thermal transfer printers on polyester substrates.

Typical applications requiring such high-durability labels include the US Department of Defense’s IUID program, UDI labels for medical devices and healthcare equipment, automobile VIN and under-hood part number, warning and instruction labels, aerospace and solar panel labels, serial tags for outdoor power equipment, vehicle and marine spare parts, building tools and materials, and more.

The partnership enables more end users to use Schreiner ProTech’s high-quality films. The Color Laser Film and laser marking systems are available from Primera and its partners. Service is also included, resulting in a turnkey, one-stop shop solution.
