At Hai Tech Laser, Inc., we are a premier provider of industrial laser fabrication solutions. One of our core service offerings is laser marking, which enables us to produce permanent markings on various objects. The process is suitable for use on a wide range of metal and non-metal substrates, including aluminum.
Below, we provide an overview of the aluminum laser marking process, including what it is, the benefits of using aluminum, and the typical applications of laser marked aluminum.
Laser marking is a non-contact, non-subtractive manufacturing process that produces permanent or semi-permanent markings on the surface of an object. Unlike laser engraving, which uses a laser to vaporize material from the surface, it uses a laser to add discoloration to the surface. The discolored areas form the desired markings, which are highly visible and durable. These qualities make the process suitable for marking components used in a variety of industries and applications.
Aluminum is one of the most commonly used materials in laser marking operations. It is strong, durable, and corrosion resistant, which results in long-lasting manufactured parts and products. The markings produced on it vary depending on the laser marking equipment and parameters used. For example, lower intensities result in white markings, while higher intensities result in dark gray or charcoal colored markings.
Laser marking offers numerous benefits over other marking methods when used to process aluminum. For example:
Due to its light weight, high strength, and corrosion resistance, aluminum is utilized for the parts and products of a variety of applications and industries. Examples of typical laser marked designs added to components include:
