Mastercut can apply a strong, permanent black marking to stainless steel and other finishes to other materials. This method can also be used in conjunction with other cutting techniques for a finished product to your requirements.

The process

Using our Co2 laser, highly detailed text, logos and images can be surface etched onto stainless steel, aluminium and other materials. When laser marking stainless steel, a mixture containing carbon & silica is sprayed onto the sheet and then the laser melts this into the surface. When laser marking aluminium, the coloured anodising pigments on the surface are burnt off, this leaves an off-white finish in the lasered areas. The remainder of the anodising remains on the aluminium surface.

What applications is it best for

Laser Marking is a fantastic technique to apply logos, barcodes or sequential numbering to thin materials.
