Laser marking is a precise, durable and quick method of marking materials. A PC-controlled laser beam is used to either discolor the surface of a part or to engrave it by vaporizing material. The laser's position can be very accurately controlled; this allows a variety of detailed effects to be achieved including text and images (logos, lines, etc.). Processing can be done on a wide variety of materials, including metals, plastics, ceramics, wood, and coatings. With laser marking, the laser never comes into contact with the material it is working on - only its beam does. This avoids damage such as touching, dragging or tearing a material's surface caused by mechanical marking methods.


Typical Applications Include:
  • Bearings, Bushings and Valve Bodies.
  • Orthopedics.
  • Electronic parts.
  • Aircraft and aerospace parts.
  • Automotive & Motorsports parts.
  • Medical implants.
  • Hand tools.
  • Sports Equipment.
  • Dials and gauges.
  • Wood products.
  • Plastics.
Advantages Over Other Marking Methods:
  • Cost effective
  • Accuracy
  • Quality
  • Repeatability
  • High Resolution / Detail
  • Non-contact (no clamping required)
  • Curved surfaces can be accommodated within limits.
  • Permanence / Durability - resistant to most cleaning processes
