Laser marking and engraving can be performed on all types of metal. Fiber source lasers are effective both on soft metals and hard alloys or hardened metals.
With laser marking it is possible to obtain different types of results: surface marking, deep engraving, surface oxidation…
The surface marking involves the removal of a few microns, obtaining a clear and lasting marking.
In the deep marking process, the laser vaporizes the metal, creating hollowed markings. With this type of process it is possible to create molds, extremely detailed and durable.
Surface oxidation does not remove the surface of the material. The heat of the laser beam produces a surface oxidation, usually black in color.
