What is Laser Marking?

Laser marking is a high-speed and non-contact process that is used to mark a variety of materials using focused laser sources. Laser marking can use a vector drawing process (like a pencil on paper) or a raster marking process to mark almost any pattern imaginable onto your parts including: text, graphics, barcodes, and 2D data matrixes.

Unlike traditional marking processes, laser marking does not require any masks, inks, or custom machining bits to be used. This drastically decreases operating costs and reduces changeover time between different parts or designs.

Glass Laser Marking

Laser marking systems for glass can be used to create an external or internal mark depending on your requirements. External laser glass marking creates etches on the outside surface of the part. Internal laser glass marking creates micro cracks inside the bulk of the glass without affecting the outside surface. 3D internal marks can also be achieved using a varying focal position.
