Laser marking leaves a permanent mark on a surface using a concentrated beam of light. Laser marking includes a wide range of applications that use UV light, green laser, continuous-wave, pulsed, and fiber technology to create concentrated light energy. Fast and easily automated, laser marking can permanently label a range of materials, from paper to steel.

Numerous industries rely on lasers to mark goods and parts with graphics, identification codes, lettering, and machine-readable data like barcodes. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the many applications for laser marking and how incorporating a marking system into the production line provides a competitive advantage for manufacturers.

How Laser Marking Systems Are Applied

As the demand for part identification and traceability grows in product design and development, laser marking proves to be an essential and growing component in various industries. Manufacturers and other industries rely on marking machines for direct part labeling and identification applications. Often these identifiers must comply with government regulations and international industry standards.

Laser marking systems can reliably mark surfaces with minimal shape limitations, including curved, soft, hard, flat, convex, and concave surfaces. Marking systems offer an ideal direct part-marking solution for almost any automated production line. Custom laser marking solutions can integrate into virtually any process flow, providing an ability to easily apply logos, text, numbers, graphics, dates, and other markings.

The following materials are ideal for laser marking:

  • Plastics
  • Copper
  • Aluminum
  • Titanium
  • Stainless Steel
  • Steel
  • Cardboard
  • Paper
  • Wood
  • Ceramic glass

What are the Benefits of Laser Marking Systems?

Laser marking systems offer a range of benefits. They provide reliable, highly-legible, and long-lasting branding, identification, or aesthetic markings for parts and products of all types. Laser marks are durable and easy to read and won’t scratch off like paint or labels.

Other advantages of laser marking for product identification include:

  • High visibility identification to provide end to end supply chain accountability
  • Enhanced efficiency and production times when integrated into the production line
  • Eliminate waste caused by other labeling methods
  • Protection from counterfeiting
  • Optimized quality control before and after production
  • Compliance with industry standards and international regulations
