The Fundamentals of Laser Marking Technology
We compare laser marking technology of two distinct types.
Laser marking technology removes material to create depth (laser depth marking) or modifies the material to change the color, contrast or reflectivity of the surface (laser surface marking).
In general, laser marking technology is the production of human- and/or machine-readable identification.
Or information on a material such as a barcode, date/lot code, serial number or part number.
We could also mark on a mterials including logos, diagrams, illustrations and photographs can also be marked on a material. (See Figure 1 below.)
