Laser marking – RFID tape

Laser / special machine for feeding, laser marking and RFID labelling 


  • For a global supplier of accessory technology for drilling platforms, topex developed and built a special system for laser marking of RFID tape.
  • The tape allows maintenance-intensive components such as anchor chains, etc. to be uniquely marked and described with data in order to manage maintenance and repair cycles.
  • The tape is fed into the laser marking area from a motorised large roll unwinder.
  • In this area, parts are marked directly with an Nd:YAG marking laser and the specific information is transferred to the integrated RFID chip.
  • The tape is then made up to the appropriate lengths.



  • Nd:YAG marking laser with 1064 Nm wavelength
  • RFID read/write unit
  • Motorised large roll unwinder with dancer control
  • Machine frame with protective cover according to laser protection class 1
  • Tape transport via motorised friction unit
  • Extraction system for particle dust
  • PC sequence control for managing the machine processes
  • Software program for connecting the system to the customer's database


Customer benefits

  • Precise tape feed due to stepper motor drive
  • Stable tape feed through dancer-controlled large roll unwinder
  • Processing of large rolls possible 
  • Laser marking and RFID labelling in one station
