Plastic Laser Marking

There are several types of laser marking methods that can be used on plastic. Some of the most common methods include:

  1. Carbonization marking: This method uses a high-power focused laser beam to create a chemical change on the surface of the plastic, resulting in a dark high-contrast mark.
  2. Foaming marking: This method creates a raised mark on the plastic surface by generating gas bubbles within the plastic material.
  3. Color change marking: This method uses a low-power laser to change the color of the plastic surface, resulting in a contrasting mark.
  4. Engraving: This method removes material from the surface of the plastic to create a deep, permanent mark.
  5. Annealing: This method heats the plastic surface to a temperature just below its melting point, causing a color change that creates a permanent mark.

The choice of the laser marking method depends on various factors, including the plastic type and color, the desired mark quality and durability, and the production requirements.
