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.

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

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.
