Marking am milling tool with a laser

Laser marking has a number of areas of application and is a popular method for when resilient markings are required – machining technology, for example. Anyone wanting to mark turning tools and milling tools should go for an efficient laser marker from JustLaser! Our laser technology can be applied to almost any surface and wins people over with its low investment risk, high productivity and excellent results.

Laser Marking Machining technology

Machining technology refers to various production processes, in which workpieces are given a specific shape through the removal of superfluous material or chips – lathing, milling, drilling or sanding, for example.

Drilling, milling and turning tools are under heavy strain as precision tools in machining technology – and so are their markings. Anyone wanting to mark turning tools and milling tools with a laser should go for a laser marker from JustLaser as they offer significant benefits:

  • Methods that are gentle to materials
  • Low costs and high throughput rate
  • High quality and legibility
  • Lasting durability of the marking

Why should you mark your turning tools and millings tools with a laser? 

Marking turning tools and milling tools with a laser has numerous applications in machining technology:

  • Production information to protect against forgery
  • Functional inscriptions
  • Codes for tracing, quality assurance, etc.

What is Laser Marking?

In laser marking, materials are marked using a laser marker. A variety of processes are used, depending on the quality requirements and the material. There is a basic distinction between:

  • Laser engraving
  • Black marking
  • Annealing marking
  • Ablation

JustLaser will provide you with the right laser machines for marking various materials.

Annealing marking

Anyone wanting to have their turning tools and milling tools marked with a laser will usually choose annealing marking as the laser marking process as it is particularly important for the surfaces of machining technology tools to be undamaged. This process can be used for all materials that change colour under the influence of heat and oxygen. The heat from the laser results in an oxidation process beneath the surface, which then causes a change in colour on the surface. The result is an imperceptible marking that does not change the nature of the surface of the tool.

Laser engraving

In addition to annealing marking, laser engraving is also used for marking turning tools and milling tools. For this process, material is removed to a certain depth. The engraving is particularly durable as these markings can only be removed from the material through a lot of sanding. It is frequently used to protect against forgery.


Both annealing marking and laser engraving are flexible processes which can be adjusted for a variety of surfaces, shapes and patterns.


Which metals are suitable for laser marking turning tools and milling tools?

  • Titanium and titanium alloys
  • Stainless steel
  • Tool steel
  • High-speed steel (HSS)
  • Drilling steel
  • Hardened and coated metals

Your benefits from using a laser marker

from JustLaser

Laser marking with a JustLaser Laser Marker is a precise, high-contrast and gentle form of metal marking. It is contactless, and results in forgery-proof, permanent markings. Anyone who wants to have their turning tools and milling tools marked with a laser can enjoy significant benefits in comparison to other methods such as embossing or etching:

  • Flexibility

Not only can the method be used on a wide variety of material surfaces and tools, it can also be adapted for a variety of shapes and patterns.

  • Precision

Even small, fine and complex markings and difficult-to-reach places can be marked using the modern laser marker from JustLaser.

  • Permanence

Laser markings are permanent, high-contrast and forgery-proof, and are even resistant to high thermal stress, abrasion and acid.

  • Gentle on materials

As lasers process materials without making contact, the process is gentle on all materials. It is not necessary to carry out pre-treatment or post-treatment on the workpiece.

  • Cost-efficiency

As workpieces are not fixed or treated with tools, no additional costs are incurred due to consumable materials or tool wear.

  • Productivity

As laser marking saves on operational steps in comparison to mechanical processes, doesn’t require set-up time and can be easily automated, you can benefit from significantly increased production efficiency. The high throughput speed of JustLaser Laser Markers facilitates low-cost production for both individual production and mass production.
