Laser engraving and laser marking

A laser engraver / marking work in almost the same way as a laser printer. The difference is the materials. The laser printer leaves color on paper, the laser engraver remove a thin layer of material, leaving a permanent surface particularly suited for labelling and decoration.

The material for laser engraving may be sheets or finished items. Common to them is that the surface ideally is a different color than the rest of the piece, eg. painted, anodized, gold, etc. Laser engraving removes part of surface and thereby creates a picture in the underlying material.

The technique has two major advantages. Firstly, the picture is chiselled into the material surface and therefore can not be removed again. This makes it particularly suitable for various forms of identification, numbering, bar codes and type of signs. Second, the initial costs low. No cost for film work and fixtures. Thereby, it is economically possible to laser engrave batches from 1 and on.

Induflex is using laser engraving mainly for identification marking and decorative purposes.

Signs can also be made of black anodized aluminum, which is also suitable process diagrams
