High Quality Laser Marking at Concept Laser Co.
Laser marking is the method of marking or labelling objects, products or materials with a laser beam, it is also referred to as laser colouration or laser dark marking. This can be done by a couple of different processes such as engraving, removing, staining, annealing and foaming.
It is ideal for creating permanent clear, legible product and part identification such as:
- Barcodes and serial codes.
- Name plates and data plates.
- Tags and labels.
- UID codes and QR codes.
- Logos and many other identification needs.
Our laser machines in the Concept Laser Co studio yield high precision and quality laser markings allowing for even the most delicate graphics, 1-point fonts and very small geometries to turn out legible. Our laser marking machines operate at very high speeds, allowing us to quickly and precisely produce multiple markings easily. Laser marking also provides a permanent result which is resistant to abrasion, heat and acids.
Why is Laser Marking Important?
Having clear and legible product and part identification in industries such as medical devices, aerospace and automotive helps to increase the safety and reliability of parts and products. An example being if a component fails in the aerospace or automotive industry, you or the manufacturer can easily find out when the part was produced and where allowing for critical recalls and warranty decisions to be made.
What materials can be laser marked?
We can laser mark a wide range of materials including:
- Metals – stainess steel, aluminium, gold, silver, titanium, platinum or copper.
- Plastics – ABS, polycarbonate, polyamide, PMMA or plastics with laser additives.
- Other Materials – foils and films, laminates, paints.
HOW DOES THE LASER MACHINE WORK?There are a couple of ways to use the laser machine, these methods are called Laser Cutting, Laser Engraving and Laser Marking. For an in depth guide of how the laser machine works and how to set up a file, please view or How to Order page.
WHAT MATERIALS CAN WE HANDLE?
With our combination of CO2 and Fibre lasers we are able to process a wide range of materials with different methods, see our table below for a quick overview. To learn more about different materials, view our materials page. If you have a material that isn’t on our list you would like to be laser cut, engraved or marked contact us to enquire!
