Laser marking in engineering has a number of areas of application and is particularly beneficial if durable product labelling or codes to ensure permanent traceability are required. The efficient laser markers from JustLaser can be applied to nearly every surface. The contactless inscription is quick and has a high throughput speed, meaning that the manageable investment quickly proves profitable.
Partial inscription through laser marking in engineering has proven beneficial due to several factors and is not exclusively relevant for safety and technical reasons. But when the traceability of components needs to be guaranteed, forgery-proof and resilient laser marking, which is also resistant to mechanical strains and weather conditions, is ideal. The process is mostly used for labelling the following:
Laser markers from JustLaser can immortalise important information as permanent, precise and forgery-proof labels on the surface of nearly any material – regardless of whether it’s on various different types of metal, stone or plastic:
Resistant and precise laser marking is the ideal solution in engineering, in which components are made from resilient materials and occasionally subjected to heavy loads but must always be traceable for the purposes of quality assurance. This generally means marking workpieces using a laser beam, and includes a variety of methods, such as ablation or black marking, depending on the material and the requirements. Laser engraving and annealing marking are the usual laser marking processes used in engineering.
In laser engraving, the base material is vaporised by the laser, creating a permanent and abrasion-resistant recess, which can only be removed by a lot of sanding. This makes laser engraving a forgery-proof process.
It is possible to use laser machines from JustLaser to selectively remove the top layers from base materials, creating a coloured inscription. The base material is unaffected by the laser in this process. This method is used for anodised aluminium or lacquered materials.
Metals whose surface colour changes under the influence of acid and heat can be labelled using annealing marking. The laser markers from JustLaser can create the desired colour depending on the temperature. The result is precise and visually appealing, while the surface of the metal is not damaged in any way.
Flexibility, resilience and cost-efficiency – laser marking in engineering offers a number of benefits and has prevailed over classic marking processes as a result.
Modern laser markers from JustLaser don’t just win people over through their low set-up costs and low investment risk, but also through their ease-of-use and high throughput rates, which makes them twice as beneficial from an economic perspective. Thanks to top quality standards and precision, even the finest lines can be produced accurately, and resilient and permanent labelling is guaranteed.
