How Laser Marking Works

Laser marking is a high-speed, non-contact process that uses a focused beam of light to slowly heat or quickly vaporize materials. By focusing on a specific area, the concentrated beam enables the laser marking machine to generate sharp, high-quality, high-contrast permanent marks that can be easily read or scanned on almost any surface.

Our laser marking machines can use vector drawings or raster images to mark almost any pattern onto your parts including text, custom graphics, barcodes and 2D data matrices.

Unlike traditional part marking processes, laser marking doesn’t require masks, inks or custom machining bits—reducing operating costs and changeover time between parts and designs.

Laser Marking for All Types of Materials

Our industry experts have seen it all, from common metals to exotic materials.

Laser Marking Metal

Laser part marking offers a streamlined and enduring solution for marking various metals, including rare earth metals. Our fiber laser marking machines excel in versatility, from deep engraving serial numbers to precision surface-level annealing of data matrix codes.

Craft high-quality marks effortlessly on aluminum, steel, zinc, and even notoriously reflective metals like gold and copper. Seamlessly integrate our cutting-edge laser technology into your production lines for static marking or dynamic on-the-fly processing.

Experience efficiency and permanence in metal part marking with our state-of-the-art laser solutions. Elevate your marking processes with precision and reliability, ensuring your products stand out with clarity and durability.

  • Types of laser marking include annealing, ablation, deep engraving, etching, and paint/layer removal
  • Typical applications include bearings, valves, gears, surgical tools, sensors, golf clubs, industrial tags
