Laser marking can be defined as the technology used for marking or labeling a wide assortment of materials by making the effective use of laser beams. The laser marking service providers make use of different varieties of techniques like annealing, foaming, removing, engraving and staining. However, the most preferred procedure used on a material is completely dependent on the material and the quality of finish needed. Popular materials used are plastics like ABS and polycarbonate, foils and laminates. There are even metals like platinum, copper, bronze, titanium, silver, stainless steel and gold used.

The different varieties of machines used by laser marking service providers are as follows:

Engraving

Laser engraving machines are specifically designed for heating the top exterior of the material. This top surface is melted slowly and then evaporates. It is one of the most efficient and quickest methods of removing material by the use of laser beam. The material once removed, leaves a clear impression of the preferred text, logo or design.

Removing

The laser removing procedure is used for removing the upper layer of the material by using laser beam. The beam is also used for creating a color contrast throughout the varied layers of the material. Some of the most common materials used in this procedure are coated metals, laminates, foils, anodized aluminum and films.

Staining

The laser staining procedure is used for creating a chemical reaction owing to the heat that is produced by the laser beam. One of the greatest advantages of this procedure is the capacity of creating varied color shades across the material. Color shading varieties differ as per chemical composition of the material.

Annealing Marking

Annealing marking is a special procedure that is used for etching different varieties of metals. Laser beam is used on the surface of a metal for creating an oxidation procedure that results in the change of color of the different layers of the metal that is used for annealing marking.

Advantages of Laser Marking Services

There are several advantages of going for a laser marking service. One of the greatest advantages that come from laser marking is the ability of obtaining high precision while working on minuscule geometries, delicate graphics and 1-point fonts. Laser marking is basically a permanent procedure that does not fade if the materials worked upon come into direct contact with abrasion, acids and heat. Yet another advantage of the laser marking procedure is that it is efficient and fast.

Superior quality laser machines have the potential of increasing productivity while bringing down the production costs.
