Materials suitable for laser marking

With a Trotec laser engraving machine, text, images and logos can be applied quickly and easily 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

  • Acrylic
  • Plastics
  • Wood
  • Textiles
  • Leather
  • Metals, e.g. anodized aluminum


Application examples for consumer electronics products

The housings of consumer electronics products are often made of anodized aluminum or coated plastic. Electronic displays are made of acrylic 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 varying amount of the top layer is removed- depending on the laser power level used- creating 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
