Laser markings on knives and firearms

TYKMA Electrox is pleased to announce their partnership with Cerakote, an industry-leading company that provides thin-film ceramic coating for a number of materials and applications.

First announced at SHOT Show in January 2019, this partnership will advance the imaging on products with Cerakote coatings by combining it with TYKMA Electrox’s laser marking abilities on various 3D objects such as knives and firearms.

Cerakote is a polymer-ceramic composite coating that is designed to enhance a number of physical features on a product, such as:

Cerakote
  • Abrasion/wear resistance
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Chemical resistance
  • Impact strength
  • Hardness

This coating can be applied to many materials including metals, plastics, polymers and wood. Once it has been applied, the object can then be laser marked in a variety of custom ways.

For instance, a customer may be interested in the following enhancements for his or her firearm:

  • Graphics
  • Logos
  • Artwork
  • Names
  • Personal messages

By utilizing this partnership and bringing these coating and laser imaging enhancements in-house, customers are able to increase their speed and efficiency for filling custom orders and/or creating products in bulk.
