Laser Marking Systems: marking lasers, laser engraving machines and laser etchers


RMI Laser began as an R&D and testing division of laser etcher and engraving machines under the leading precision laser optics and coatings company, Rocky Mountain Instrument Co.  With a history rooted in photonics industry sciences, RMI Laser officially formed as a standalone company in 1998.

Founded by photonics industry pioneer, Dr. Yubong Hahn, RMI Laser was the first company to experiment with commercial YVO4 laser engraving machines. Since then, RMI Laser has maintained a long history of pioneering laser engraving machines including the first ultra-compact, low cost direct metal marker (UM-1), and the revolutionary technological enhancement that lead to the next generation of Nd: YAG laser marking. RMI Laser was also the first to utilize a dual pumping laser resonator in order to support high power YVO4 laser engraving machines.
