Laser metal marking

 

Laser marking on metal delivers highly durable marks without sacrificing material integrity and the high contrast image produced is ideal for serial tags, identification plates and two-dimensional barcodes. Bare metals are recommended to be marked and engraved by fiber laser. Most bare metals can be CO2 laser marked with the use of marking compounds.


Laser is used to mark high value tools and parts quickly and precisely. Laser systems offer a permanent, non-contact solution for creating identification marks on many materials.


Anodized aluminum can be directly marked with a CO2 laser. Stainless steel, steel, aluminum, titanium, tungsten, alumamark™, anodized aluminum, carbide, coated metals, brass, cobalt, copper, iron, nickel, pewter, and more can be marked by laser.

 

Laser mark tools and other high value assets with custom logos, artwork, ID and serial numbers, barcodes, UID codes and 2D matrix codes. Laser systems are great tools for etching anodized aluminum instruments and control panels, as well as consumer electronics like iPods and cell phones.
Anodized military-style tags are great for personalizing.

 

 

Most metals and plastics including: stainless steel, aluminum, black/white ABS, carbon fiber, polycarbonate, anodized aluminum, white PEEK, silicon wafers, colored delrin, magnesium and more can be marked directly by Laser fiber.


CO2 laser can mark most metals by first applying a marking compound to the metal surface. The laser beam fuses the marking compound with the metal, leaving behind a dark mark (almost black) that does not rub off and is not affected by cleaners and solvents. Some bare metals can even be marked directly with a Co2 laser system using Universal's High Power Density Focusing Optics (HPDFO).
