Our system is ideal for applications requiring a unique identification for product traceability. Laser etching is a permanent process that etches without contact and marks without inks or dyes. The mark created by laser engraving is clean and precise. The process is computer controlled. This produces a mark that is accurate with precise repeatability. This is an attractive alternate to traditional marking methods such as ink stamping, chemical etching, pad printing, or mechanical engraving. It is also faster than most methods. Since permanence is a hallmark of laser marking, our system is ideally suited to generate a high clarity mark and after market traceability. Laser engraving your logo or company trademark can improve the market appearance of your product. Depending on the product requirements, the laser settings can be adjusted to vary depth and darkness of mark. Laser engraving and etching can be done on flat or round surfaces.

Laser engraving- This process is similar to a pencil or mechanical engraving. The process uses a focus laser beam to remove the material. This is a deep mark. The mark can be as deep as .020” in metals. This is usually required when the finished part will experience high wear or is to be plated after engraving.
Laser etching- This uses similar settings as engraving, but the mark is not as deep. The material removed is .001” or less.
Surface oxidation is created on the surface by laser induced elevated temperatures. The oxidation creates a dark mark on stainless, titanium and most plastics. This process anneals the material and does not remove or add material to the part.
