Fast marking of type numbers, logos or barcodes on aluminum
With a fiber laser you can easily put a text, type number, logo, barcode, QR code or any other image. This works both for smooth and brushed aluminum, but you get even more contrast when you laser anodize with an fiber laser anodized (black, red, blue) aluminum. Then the marking becomes clear / shiny again and the anodising layer remains complete with a very high resolution.
Laser marking of aluminum is often used in the industry to enable parts to be better traced during production and to make service easier afterwards. Laser markings are permanently in the material and are still visible after years.
How does this work?
Here is an example of laser marking of aluminum, in which an open-bed fiber laser is used. Such machines have the advantage that the object to be engraved is easy and quick to install and remove, but safety requirements have to be made with regard to laser safety, which is why it is often decided to work with closed fiber laser systems.
