This is the same process as raster engraving but with laser marking a ceramic compound is applied to the surface of the metal. The laser passes over this to permanently bond a black to dark grey finish to the surface depending on the type of metal making it laser marked. Laser marking is the perfect process for branding, product traceability, barcoding, logos or decorative marking.
Laser marking works on almost any metal substrate including:
- Stainless steel
- Chrome plating
- Similar metals which are highly resistant to mechanical and chemical stresses as well as high temperatures.
Our CO2 laser marking service can help you with any project, and is a reliable and versatile process which is usually preferred when working with thin metals. As the laser can mark without cutting into the surface affecting the product or material surface.
With laser marking soft metals such as aluminium or hard metals or alloys such as steel can be marked permanently, easily and quickly. The applications range from labelling for traceability to the personalisation of promotional items.
The contactless marking process ensures the lowest costs per marking. With steel alloys, it’s even possible to produce corrosion-resistant laser markings without damaging the surface of the metal. We only use the highest quality marking compound produced by Ferro branded as Cermark this has been tested on the exterior of the International Space Station and passed the NASA material criteria.
