Laser Engraving on Chrome

Laser engraving on chrome can produce some truly wonderful results. The crisp, clear marks that laser engraving can make on chrome make it the perfect marking solution for any time of decorative marking on chrome.

The two photos in this post show different types of marks on chrome. The lobster was marked us an "ablation" technique that just provided a white, frosted look on the chrome surface.

The other photo is a chrome-plated auto exhaust component marked using a "stain" mark, which simply heats up the surface of the part and causes an oxide layer to form. The oxide layer is permanent, not damaging, and provides excellent contrast.

Using a fiber laser marking system is the best bet for laser engraving on chrome. The Jimani Hybrid Fiber Laser Marking System is a complete system and flexible direct-part marking tool. 

The workstation's Z-axis adjustment can position the focusing lens as high as 29 inches above the part marking surface. The laser marker accommodates long focal length lenses, part fixtures, large surface areas, and tall pieces.

The system is mounted on casters and can be moved from one area of the factory to another without being "tethered" by water or high-voltage connections if necessary. 

All Hybrid fiber laser marking systems are supplied with Prolase, a user friendly, proven, robust laser marking systems software package.
