DIFFERENT TYPES OF LASER MARKS

Not all laser marks are the same. The right one for your application will depend on a variety of factors, such as the material you are marking and how deep of a mark you need.

  • Annealing involves heating the material to create oxidation on the surface, producing a contrasting mark without removing material.
  • Etching is an extremely shallow mark usually only removes the top layer or coating of a material.
  • Engraving removes material to create deep, durable marks.
  • Carbonization and foaming are specific to laser marking plastics. Carbonization creates a contrast mark while foaming creates a raised mark.
