What You Need to Know About Laser Marking Aluminum

Since aluminum is a lightweight and ductile metal, you need a laser marking system that can create a high-contrast final product and can precisely complete your application without damaging the material. Luckily for you, a MOPA fiber laser is built to accommodate laser marking aluminum, supplying clean, crisp marks that won’t fade over time.

How the Aluminum Laser Etching and Marking Process Works

The process of laser engraving aluminum consists of removing just a portion of the surface of the aluminum, creating a clear and high-contrast finish on your existing product. This is accomplished through localized heating from the laser marking system itself.

The depth that you engrave the aluminum at can also depend on the time allowed for the marking process, as stripping small layers at a time is preferable for the most effective results.
