   Laser Marking and Laser Engraving Attributes:

  • A permanent mark
  • High density (characters as small as 0.012 high)
  • Non-contact (eliminates distortion of delicate parts and simplifies tooling.)
  • Marking of hard to reach areas.
  • Highly legible, even with small characters.
  • Typically does not need pre or post-processing.
  • A highly accurate and repeatable laser mark.
  • A wide variety of fonts and graphics via software.
  • Automatic sequential serializing.

Three general methods for laser marking and engraving are:

1. The material removal process provides typical depths from 0.001 inch to 0.002 inch. Heavier marks can be made from 0.003 inch to 0.004 inch with maximum depth of 0.005 inch.

2. Anodized aluminium marks very well with excellent contrast between the color and the bared aluminium. Penetration into the aluminium is typically less that 0.0005 inch.

3. The selective thermal process works very well with stainless steel. There is no surface upset at all. The resulting blue or black color provides high contrast with the metal.
