Developed by Raylase AG, RLScribe marking software for use with CO2 and Nd:YAG lasers is compatible with Windows XP and 2000 operating systems. The support of vector-marking fonts enables the creation of individual marking designs using single- and dual-stroke characters. Dotmatrix fonts are supplied as standard, and 1- and 2-D bar codes are included. Import of bmp and plt graphics files supports externally produced pictures. Features include serialization of text and bar-code objects, and an automatic date function.
