Laser marking and laser engraving are established processes for placing permanent, high quality brands, marks, or logos onto metal surfaces. Almost all types of metals can be marked accurately and quickly, including soft metals such as aluminium, as well as steel and very hard alloys. Metal products are marked with lasers in a wide number of industries, including electronics, automotive, engineering, and jewellery.
Laser marking is a clean and precise method of marking key information in the highest resolution and many metals can be laser marked without any pre- or post-processing. Metal is complex and can be conductive, or reactive, or contain alloys or chemicals, so the method of laser marking or engraving will depend on the type of metal.
Lasers can be precisely adjusted to achieve absolute precision on the respective metal.
Regardless of volume, laser marking can be completed with incredible speed and accuracy.
Even the most intricate markings can be achieved in high-contrast and total clarity.
The laser marking process leaves the component surface virtually unaffected.
Laser markings on metals will not fade or rub off, remaining legible for many years.
Modern laser machinery has a low energy consumption and operating cost.
Laser marking does not require the use of chemicals or inks and doesn’t produce waste.
