Laser marking and engraving of metals

Everything you need to know about marking steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass or titanium. How permanent laser engraving works without consumables.

How you can use a laser machine to
mark and engrave metals.

With laser machines, soft metals such as aluminum or hard metals or alloys such as steel can be marked permanently, easily and quickly. The applications range from labeling for traceability to the personalization of promotional items.

The contactless marking process, without consumables or tool wear, ensures the lowest costs per marking. With steel alloys, it’s even possible to produce corrosion-resistant laser markings without damaging the surface of the metal using so-called annealing marking.
