Metal Marking

Laser Metal Marking

Metal marking with CMS Laser is a cost and time efficient method for imprinting serial numbers, codes, logos and more on any number of metals and alloys. Because there is no contact by any sort of tooling, the integrity of the metal is not compromised in any way, and there are no costs for replacing or sharpening stamps, dies, or bits. Our laser metal marking systems are being used in manufacturing facilities around the world, marking, annealing, etching, and engraving a wide variety of metals.

In addition to the speed advantages, marks made with lasers are long lasting and durable. Depending on the metal and method, marks can also leave the surface completely intact, which is important in cases where no surface variation is allowed. Extremely small legible marking is also possible with lasers, and all CMS Laser systems can connect with your data to allow for sequential marking of serial numbers, bar codes, or other variable data.

The additional wavelengths and powers available in the 21st century give us many options when it comes to working with metal. For many years some metals were extremely difficult to apply laser marking technology to, but now we can help you with virtually any metal or alloy, including:

Aluminum
Brass
Carbide
Chrome
Cobalt
Copper
Gold
Platinum
Silver
Stainless Steel
Steel
Tin
Titanium
Zinc

This is not an exhaustive list, so if you’re using a rare or unusual metal or alloy, talk to the engineers in our state of the art Applications Lab or fill out the form at the bottom of the Apps Lab page, and we’ll get to work on your Free Product Analysis.
