Application examples for consumer electronics products

Consumer electronics housing are often made of coated plastic or anodized aluminum. Electronic displays are made of acrylic or Plexiglas, and mobile phone cases typically made of wood, leather or textiles. Depending on the material, these can be marked with a CO₂ or fiber laser. During laser engraving and depending on the laser power, a varying amount of the top layer is removed, which creates varying contrasts. It is not possible to cut metals or anodized aluminum with the laser machine.
