Laser Marking, Laser Etching, & Laser Engraving: ONE Flexible Tool

Posted by Mark Boyle on Thu, May 31, 2012 @ 04:13 PM

We often talk about our laser markers as being "flexible" and "capable of making many different kinds of marks." Sounds great, doesn’t it?  Yes!  But what exactly does that mean?  Well, it means that depending how the laser is controlled, the mark you make may be just a surface effect – a color change - with little or no material removed, or it can remove significant amounts of material, leaving a groove that you can both see and feel.  Below is a list of several types of marks and typical applications for the same.  Note that all of these marks were made with a single (flexible!) fiber laser marker.

Parts are labeled with all kinds of marks: alpha-numeric serial numbers, date stamps, barcodes, etc..  There are a lot of marking methods available out there including dot-peen, chemical etching, pad printing, ink-jet printing, and laser marking.  As manufacturers of laser markers and laser marking systems, we, of course, believe that there are many good reasons why laser marking makes sense in your manufacturing operation?
