Advantages of Laser Marking / Engraving

Permanence
The laser mark permanently transforms the material, and will last the life of the material itself.

Accuracy and Consistency
The laser beam is steered by computer controlled galvo mirrors, resulting in extremely accurate and consistent marks across thousands of cycles.

Non-Contact Process
Outside of the laser marked area itself, no stress is placed on the part from lasering or holding.  The lasered parts are distortion free.

Flexibility
Any type of information that can be displayed visually can be laser marked onto your parts or tags.  See our Application Section.  Further, the information being marked can be altered quickly and easily.  Whether changing lot codes, or skipping a group of serial numbers in the middle of a run, or updating your address or patent information in between runs, there is very little extra time required.

High Resolution
Laser marking can create characters and graphics as small as humanly legible, and smaller!

Environmentally  Friendly
Laser marking requires no secondary material input and generates no waste products.

Fast Turnaround
Because many jobs require no fixture fabrication or complicated machine setup, prototypes and first pieces can be produced in as little as 1 to 2 days.

Low Setup Cost and Change cost
Many jobs require no fixture fabrication costs.  Further, the information being marked can be edited or updated on the fly with the click of a mouse button.

Competitive Pricing
Due to many of the advantages listed above, as well as the high speed of the laser itself, laser marking often offers a very competitive price alternative to older marking methods.
