Anodized Aluminum Marking
The laser mark on anodized aluminum is a bright white, revealing a high contrast to most surface colors. Lasing times on anodized aluminum are relatively short; this allows for competitive pricing and an ability to accommodate high volume orders with a quick turnaround.
Metal marking is another one of our specialties. Text and graphics can be permanently marked on carbide tool, stainless steels, anodized aluminum, other metals, and finishes. Many of these applications are inexpensive and quickly completed. Laser marking increases durability and legibility. A darkened lased mark can be achieved in certain metals, without noticeably altering the surface texture. This method is popular for medical instruments. The mark remains through autoclave and passivation processes.
Polycarbonates of a polished or textured surface develop a defined dark mark under the laser. Lexan, a transparent plastic, produces a similar dark mark, perfect for custom decoration and back-lit plaques. Multi-layered paint on plastic can be removed to specific depths, revealing the underlying colors.
