Laser marking is the marking or labeling of metal materials using laser light. While the machine used is called the Marking machine. The types of laser marking machines are also quite diverse.
In general, the laser marking process is carried out for metal materials. The advantage of the marking process with the help of a laser machine is that it can provide detailed laser results that are quite good so that they are suitable for small-sized materials such as the need for making logos with laser marking.
Materials for Laser Marking
In contrast to Laser Cutting and Laser Engraving, where the materials used both can be metal or non-metal. Learn about some of the materials metal lasers can work with here. While the material used in laser processing this time is only metal material. The metal materials used are as follows
- carbon steel
- Stainless Steel
- Galvanized Steel
- Nickel Plate
Application of Laser Marking in Industrial Production Process
This type of laser marking is generally used to create logos or designs that require clear details. The application of this type of laser marking can be tailored to your needs as a customer. Examples of products made with this type of laser are as follows:
- Product Logo
- Sign Room
- Custom Design
Laser Marking Results
Laser marking also has similarities to laser engraving. But there is a difference when you touch the results directly. If the product produced by laser engraving is touched, it will feel wavy because it forms a pattern, while the product produced through the laser marking process will feel smooth when touched.
However, both use lasers. Laser Marking Machines are commonly used to mark metal and non-metallic surfaces. This laser can also be used to create logos such as company logos in the form of letters, numeric patterns / graphic shapes. Laser Marking is very often used all over the world. Especially in the cutting, marking, stamping, embossing and engraving industries.
By using this laser, it will be easier for you to mark which parts you will target. You can also use this laser using computer media. The trick is to install special software. Even though it has limited functionality, this one laser is enough to help entrepreneurs to be able to display their logo on each of their products. Armed with special software, you can also use this laser very easily. Simple and very functional.
The Laser Marking process is what happens when the laser beam is interacting with the surface of the material, slightly changing its properties or appearance.
• This is achieved by moving a low-powered laser slowly across the material using a method called discoloration, which creates high-contrast marks without disturbing the material.
• This laser beam heats the material, causing oxidation in the subsurface and turning the material black.
• It applies low temperature to metal to make the surface shiny.
• Marking process is carried out without injuring the surface of the material, the process is complete and the material is maintained intact.
