Learn how you can make markings in different colors on anodized aluminum with a MOPA laser, using this name badge as inspiration.
- anodized aluminum
You might need other parameters when marking glossy aluminum.
To achieve different colors, the pulse width has to be changed. Therefore you only achieve black markings when using a standard fiber laser of the SpeedMarker Series, a Speedy fiber or Speedy flexx.
Import our template or create your own design. Import the PDF with layers into SpeedMark and assign parameters and fillings to the object.
Important: If texts are imported from a PDF, they have to be converted into curves before. Otherwise SpeedMark Software does not recognize them as Text. Alternatively, you can produce the text directly in SpeedMark.
|Filling for||Fill style||Line distance [mm]|
|Logo||cross lines (bidirectional)||0.003|
Now enter the parameter settings. They can differ depending on the laser machine used and laser power available.
|Laser parameter||Process||Power [%]||Speed [mm/s]|
|Laser parameter||Frequency [kHz]||Pulse width [ns]||Passes|
