How does laser marking metal work?

​There are different processing methods for laser marking metal, such as staining by annealing or surface engraving by evaporation. The Rayjet is primarily suited for the removal of coatings on metal. For example in anodized aluminum, the coating is removed by the laser, so that the underlying metal becomes visible. Please contact us for more information on metal engraving.

Durable and hard-wearing metal markings

​Laser marking metal produces permanent and wear-resistant markings. Even under adverse environmental conditions markings remain legible. This is especially relevant for the labelling of components and tools which require long-term traceability of origin. 

Minimal maintenance requirements

​Laser engraving metal is an entirely non-contact process, which causes no mechanical wear and tear on the device and ensures that the laser engraver has a long operational life. You only need to occasionally clean the Rayjet's focus lenses. Other than that no maintenance is required.

​The Rayjet works in a similar way to an office printer. Send your image file directly from your usual graphics program to the laser. As soon as you have selected the type of material, you can start the laser engraving process. More information about the Rayjet laser engraver can be found on the product page.
