Laser Engraving Copper

Copper is a soft, ductile, and malleable metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity, making it ideal for laser engraving. The metal is widely used in domestic, industrial, and high-technology applications, meaning it can be found in the following and more:

  • Pipes
  • Tubes
  • Electrical wires
  • Coins
  • Electronics
  • Micro-chips
  • Semi-conductors
  • Circuit boards
  • Locks and hinges
  • Cookware
  • Clocks and watches
  • Art

Laser Engraving Brass

Brass is a durable, yet malleable metal alloy made primarily of copper and zinc. With a low melting point and high electrical and thermal conductivity, brass is used throughout a wide variety of industries.

Laser etching brass results in the creation of a bold dark mark on the metal alloy, making it a very commonly marked material. Brass is commonly found in the following:

  • Jazz instruments
  • Jewelry
  • Plumbing fixtures
  • Pipe fittings
  • Nuts and bolts
  • Shell casings for ammunition
  • Precision instruments, such as gauges and clocks

Laser Engraving Brass Plates and Copper Plates

In addition to the multiple applications listed above, laser engraving copper plates and brass plates is extremely common. Brass and copper plates are commonly used for trophies, picture frames, badges, plaques, signs and more.

Laser engraving brass plates and copper plates is made simple with laser marking machines from TYKMA Electrox. All of our fiber laser marking systems are manufactured with a high-powered MOPA fiber laser engine, allowing for clean and distinct marks on brass or copper. Laser engraving copper plates or brass plates is a common practice in the gift-giving industry, as it allows for easy customization.

Laser Workstations Ideal for Laser Engraving Copper and Brass

At TYKMA Electrox, our laser engraving workstations are great for engraving any number of material surfaces. However, some lasers are more compatible with copper and brass than others.

When laser etching copper or brass, we recommend using a fiber laser system. Some of our leading fiber laser marking systems are as follows:

Each of our systems for laser etching copper or brass only requires a USB connection to a laptop or desktop PC to begin programming the laser marking software.
