Laser Anneal Marking

For products that cannot be damaged or have material removed, but need a permanent and lasting mark.  Laser anneal marking is the best option.  This process adds heat to high carbon steels, such as tool steel or stainless steels. This darkens the area where the laser interacted creating a permanent black marking.

Plastics Marking

Plastics Foaming

  For plastic materials, laser foam marking is an option that will use laser beam   absorption to create part identification or product branding.

Plastics Carbonizing

  Unlike laser mark foaming, carbonizing is the best option for plastics if the   material cannot be damaged in any way.

Coating Removal

During this process, laser energy is focused and absorbed by a coating on the surface, which results in vaporization of the coating with minimal effect to the base material.  Used with powder or wet paints, anodized aluminum, steel with black oxide and countless other coatings.
