Laser marking and laser engraving of metals

Laser engraving of metals like steel, aluminum, silver and many others

Laser marking has been successful for marking metals because of the durability and the fact that the material is not damaged. Laser lasers are mainly used for laser marking and laser engraving of metals; these are suitable for marking many different types of metal.

Metal grades suitable for laser engraving and laser marking

  • Aluminum
  • Carbid metal
  • Chrome
  • Zinc
  • Eloxal
  • gold
  • Cobalt
  • Silver
  • Copper Metals with coating
  • Brass
  • Titanium
  • Platinum
  • Steel
  • Tin

What are the advantages of laser engraving of metals?

Marking metal with the laser is a very accurate and clean way of working with metal. Marking serial numbers, codes and logos can be applied to products and components in the maximum resolution. Marking and engraving metal with the laser is contactless; the metal surface is therefore not damaged.

In which areas is laser marking of metals often used?

Typical fields of application for laser marking of metals are: labeling products, coding in the electronic industry (mobile phones, iPad - mostly eloxal marking), manufacturing tools and in medical technology. Tempering (see below) is a particularly suitable process that ensures a marker without rough edges.

Suitable laser machines

Closed fiber lasers

Maximum safety for your operator, when the laser is on, the operator can never be exposed to laser light.

Open Fiber lasers

Open fiber laser with integrated PC with laser engraving software. Class 4 laser machine. You should always use certified laser glasses with these machines.

Laser cutting of metal

With high power fiber lasers, laser cutting of metal is also possible. These are machines with increasing capacity to cut through extremely thick metal sheets in this way. In addition, the work surface is a determining factor. From 90 x 60 cm to 400 x 200 m, where this type of machines directly compete with well-known German laser machine manufacturers.
