Laser marking and engraving can be done on all metals: steel, stainless steel, iron, copper, aluminum, gold, silver, platinum, palladium, among others. The processes that can be carried out range from deep engraving to annealing marking or surface blackening.
Steel is one of the most used metals in modern industry and in particular in the medical sector. It is an alloy of iron, carbon and chromium in an amount of at least 10.5%.
This last element forms a layer of oxide and in this way prevents the metal from rusting. This is why stainless steel is also known as corrosion resistant steel.
Creating a mark on the surface of the steel is very simple using the fiber optic laser. The material reacts very well to the infrared wavelength, with simplicity it triggers surface reactions that produce contrasting and sharp signs.
This process produces a permanent, direct mark on the surface of the metal and the laser machine settings can be changed at will to produce a wide variety of stainless steel finishes that include permanent light, halftone or dark marks and a variety of colors. .
This technology is used intensively in industry and especially in sectors such as automotive, medical, aerospace where product traceability is of particular importance. These lighter marking options can be used to improve productivity.
