Automatic tag laser marking
with labeling system

Needs met

The Tag Belt laser marker is the latest LASIT model for automatic tag marking. We have already encountered some of its features in the Fly Label, our best seller in the hydraulic world.

Loading systems for various tags

The warehouses can accommodate tags of different sizes and this makes them the most flexible templates ever. We can mark any tag with the same laser system. Once laser marking has completed, a sensor reads the tag position and the Pick & Place system picks it up. Meanwhile, the next tag is ready to be marked. Warehouses have 200 mm (height) load capacity so as to be able to load up to 400 0.5 mm thick tags. Loader bases are fixed, while the upper part can be removed in a few seconds and replaced with the one best suited to the size of the tags to be marked.

Automatic conveyors

The conveyors that transport the boxes with the tags and order labels guarantee orderly work management. The boxes are emptied and replaced on the infeed conveyor so as to save time and optimize production.

Customized software

LASIT specializes in the design of customized software based on its customers’ needs. For example, the layout can be retrieved for each tag associated with a product family and dynamically populated with the data relating to the specific product directly accessed via SQL SERVER, AS400, ORACLE, SAP or in any other mode made available by the factory system.

Labeler connected
to the factory system

The great advantage of the Tag Belt laser marking machine is that it is equipped with a labeler connected to the factory system which automatically prints the production order. The label ends up in the collection boxes with marked tags that pass on the conveyor.


The connection is RFID reading type, the laser communicates with the factory system and completes the required marking layout accordingly. The laser marking system communicates the label to be printed to the labeler via software.

Operating cycle

The operator loads the tags.

The RFID reader reads the code on the tray and acquires the production order from there.

Once the cycle starts, the marking head moves to the reference loader according to the production order.

A screw automatically lifts the tags and a sensor checks the correct position.

The tag is marked and immediately afterwards picked up by the Pick & Place system which moves along the X axis to place it in the reference basket.

The cycle relating to marking the batch of reference to the production order resumes from point 1.

Once all labels in the production order have been marked, the infeed belt moves one step forward to allow a new collection basket to be positioned. Simultaneously, the outfeed belt does the same.

Once this step is completed, a pneumatic system picks up the last basket of the infeed belt on the outfeed one

Once in place, the Zebra printer, positioned along the outfeed belt, drops the printed label automatically in relation to the associated production order.

Quality in every detail
Pick & Place system

The Pick & Place system consists of a suction cup with a Venturi vacuum. This allows the tag to be picked from the top without running the risk of damaging it in any way (as may occur when unloading with a push/pneumatic system).

Rigid structure

The machine axis structure is made of steel with double profile. After welding, it is stretched and subsequently machined with the utmost precision to create the bearing surfaces of the ball-bearing guides, ball screws and bearing supports.
