Laser marking services is a term that covers a wide range of laser part marking processes. Because there are many different processes, it is possible to add markings to just about any material.
Industrial laser marking involves using a low-powered laser beam and moving it in a highly controlled path to create a desired set of alpha-numeric characters or free-form pattern. This method of marking provides durable product identification that is becoming a more and more common requirement for many different categories of products. Most product identification is used as a traceability method for safety, inventory control, or other identification requirements related to regulatory mandates.
Our laser marking services are commonly used to produce bar codes, QR codes, logos, and other identifying marks such as serial numbers or other regulatory information.
Benefits of laser marking include:
- High quality, easily distinguishable markings for human or machine reading
- Excellent durability
- Can be used to mark irregularly-shaped surfaces
- Non-contact marking method
- High production efficiency
Laser marking is commonly used on stainless steel and titanium but is equally effective on a broad range of materials. It’s very fast, highly precise and laser marks don’t alter the surface tolerance of the material or don’t rub off under harsh application environments.
