LASER ENGRAVING & MARKING ON METAL EXPLAINED
Laser engraving metal is a durable and detailed method of permanently marking the surface of various types of metals. whether its a one off or a long run industrial application, metal engraving could be a unique and long lasting solution to suit your needs.
GENERAL RULES FOR LASER ENGRAVING METAL
Laser engraving allows us to work with 2 general types of metal
1. Pre Treated Metal
Pre treated metals include anodized, pre painted or lacquered. In this case the laser will remove the layer of pre treated metal exposing the original surface. Depending on the pre treatment of the metal, laser engraving will create different effects.
2. Non treated (original metal)
Co2 Laser engraving machines cant actually mark original metal surfaces. In these cases we use a special compound to assist in the marking of the metal.
This allows us to etch the metal and leave a well defined black mark on the surface on the metal.
