What Is Laser Marking?​

Laser Marking is where the beam is interacting with the surface of the material and slightly altering its properties or appearance. Types of marking are Annealing, Polishing, Foaming, Color Change:
  • Annealing is the process by which the surface of a material is heated to just below its melting point in order to create oxide layers on the surface.
  • Polishing (Burnishing) is a process where the laser’s intensity is reduced to ensure the lightest marking intensity possible. This creates a mirror-like oxidized surface layer without removing any actual surface material.
  • Color Change uses the energy of the laser beam to alter the molecular structure of the piece, making a visible change in the color of the plastic substrate without damaging the surface of the material.
  • Foaming uses the energy of the laser beam to alter the molecular structure of the piece, making a visible change in the color of the substrate, without damaging the surface of the material. Foaming is similar to color changing, however the process actually raises the level of the material so it appears like a foam on the surface of the plastic.
