At Hai Tech Lasers, Inc., we are a premier provider of precision industrial laser services. One of our core offerings is laser engraving, which enables us to create shallow to deep engravings in simple to complex designs. The process accommodates a variety of substrates, including aluminum.
Below, we provide an overview of the aluminum laser engraving process, including what it is, the benefits of using aluminum, and the typical applications of laser engraved aluminum.
Laser engraving is a non-contact, thermal-based manufacturing process that uses laser technology to permanently incise identification and/or tracking information onto an object. The laser vaporizes small areas on the surface of the object, producing slightly indented markings that are high-resolution, high-contrast, and highly resistant to degradation from chemicals, cleaners, saltwater, solvents, and other potentially damaging solutions.
One of the most popular laser engraving materials is aluminum. Due to its strength and durability, it is suitable for making various laser engraved parts and products. However, it is essential to use the right laser engraving equipment and parameters. Otherwise, the engravings may be inaccurate, imprecise, or blurred. Fast engraving speeds, high resolution, and detailed focus are vital to producing high-quality laser engraved aluminum components.
There are many benefits to using laser engraving over other engraving methods when processing aluminum. For example:
Due to its high strength, low weight, and good corrosion resistance, aluminum finds use in the manufacture of a wide range of parts and products. Examples of typical laser engraved designs include:
These designs are added to various aluminum components, including equipment parts, fine art pieces, firearms, instruments, personalized goods, and tools.
