Laser Etching is a contact free method of permanently marking products with a high degree of speed, detail and clarity. The markings produced by Andrews Hi-Tec laser marking methods are generally abrasion resistant, and result in a high degree of contrast against the targeted surface. Our laser marking method involves the use of a laser beam rapidly passing across the surface of the desired image, vaporizing (blasting away) microscopic fragments of material, creating an attractive detailed image in a variety of materials. The laser beam can be used to remove a skin of material such as plating or anodizing, revealing the substrate material and in some cases a high contrasted mark depending on the material being marked and the desired final result.
The laser beam can be controlled to permanently change the color of the material and avoid removing any material in the process. Laser Etching is typically the process of choice for product marking & branding applications where a contrasting mark with little to no depth, is desired. The degree of contrast and appearance of the markings largely depend on the material being marked, surface treatment, and other factors. Andrews Hi-Tec offers a variety of marking capabilities to choose from.
