Laser Marking and Etching

As government and industrial regulations for clearly legible, permanent marks on parts increases, laser marking, laser etching and laser engraving is rapidly growing in popularity.

What’s the difference between laser marking, laser etching and laser engraving?

These terms are often used interchangeably but they each offer different capabilities and results.

Laser marking is typically used for marking various metals needing serial or model numbers. Our alpha-numeric laser marking and bar coding is done via computer-controlled optics with rotary capabilities. This means we can mark any variation of flat, curved or round surfaces with sequential serial numbers, alphanumeric (including OCRA-A) variations, and bar codes.

Laser etching comes in handy when we need to etch away a certain material,such as laminates, ceramics, and plastics to create labels or other identifiers.

Laser engraving is also included in this category, but is mostly reserved for when we’re talking about wood, metal plaques and plates, jewelry, firearms, automotive emblems and the like.
