TYKMA Electrox supplies robust, reliable systems that can fulfill a wide array of applications, including marking on metals such as titanium. Let’s start things off by looking at some FAQs on laser marking and engraving titanium so you can be ready for your next task when working with titanium components.
What machines should be used when laser engraving titanium?
The best equipment for laser engraving titanium or laser marking titanium is a fiber laser, which provides high levels of precision and also supplies versatility across a range of surfaces. When purchasing a laser marking machine, you will want to consider the power, size, engraving area, software and compatibility, maintenance, support, and cost in order to find the best solution for your specific application.
How can you create color when laser marking on titanium surfaces?
When you vary parameters like speed, power, frequency, and focus, it is possible to produce vibrant colors on your titanium surface. Fiber lasers are your best bet for this process.
What is the purpose of laser engraving titanium?
Laser engraving titanium is used to distinguish different parts of the same part, for product traceability, branding, or decorative purposes. This can include 2D barcodes, data matrix codes, QR codes, serial numbers, VIN numbers, logos, and beyond.
What are the benefits of laser marking titanium?
When you choose laser marking or engraving as your marking method, you will discover the following benefits:
- Longevity – Laser engraving or marking titanium produces durable marks that are easily readable by consumers.
- No consumables – Using laser engraving eliminates consumables, making it an eco-friendly operation that is also affordable.
- Fast – The process of laser marking is fast and efficient, producing clear marks quickly that save companies time and money.
- Clarity – Since the laser doesn’t actually touch the surface in the process of laser etching titanium, the result is precise and error-free.
Can intricate designs be created when laser engraving titanium?
Absolutely! When laser etching titanium, a computer program is used to direct the point of the laser along a certain pattern or design. This means that the possibilities of your marking are endless, letting you create large designs on a bigger surface or intricate ones on a smaller surface.
