Materials suitable for laser marking

With a Trotec laser engraving machine, you can quickly and easily apply text, images and logos to electronic products or mobile phone covers. Personalized, high quality laser engravings not only upgrade the product itself, they also protect it from being mistaken for a similar item. Thanks to permanent markings, electronic devices can be easily identified if lost or stolen.

Materials suitable for laser marking

  • Plastics, such as acrylic
  • Wood
  • Textiles
  • Leather
  • Metals, e.g. anodized aluminum


Application examples for consumer electronics products

Trotec lasers can mark all materials that are generally used for the housings of consumer electronics (such as anodized aluminum or coated plastic), as well as materials used for electronic displays 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, a specified amount of the top layer is removed, (depending on the laser power settings) to create varying contrasts. It is not possible to cut anodized aluminum or metals with the laser.

  • Individual finishes
  • Personalization
  • Security markings
  • Corporate branding on smartphones, tablets and laptops as well as protective cases

"We are continually finding new ways to use our Speedy 300 flexx. It can cut and mark many different types of material very quickly and with amazing precision, and it minimizes down time because there is very little maintenance or training required."
- ​Donald Halsey, - Halsey Manufacturing (Denton, TX) -
"We really liked the features of the JobControl software and had heard that it was faster. Given the large volume of order we received, trimming 5-15% of time off of each plate allows us to fulfill orders faster and have more time for the large amount of orders."
