- anodized aluminum
When marking glossy aluminum, you may need other parameters.
Creating a black marking is only possible with the MOPA laser. This is the only laser that colors anodized aluminum black through short pulsing. The conventional fiber lasers in the SpeedMarker Series, Speedy Flexx or Speedy Fiber Laser, can only create white marking.
Download our design file or create your own. Upload the PDF with the differnt layers into the SpeedMark software and fill out the appropriate parameters and fillings.
It is importnat to note that if texts are improted from a PDF, they have to be converted into into curves. If not, the software will not recognize the design as text. On the other hand, it is also possibel to create text driectly in the SpeedMark software
