Laser Marking Aluminum

Why Laser Mark Aluminum?

There are a huge number of applications that call for laser marking aluminum. Aluminum parts come in all shapes and sizes and are used in a wide range of industries. From aerospace to automotive to consumer goods, aluminum parts serve many needs and are marked for a variety of reasons.

Common laser marking methods include engraving, deep engraving, ablation, and surface staining. Which of these methods is best will often depend on the type of mark you wish to make and the type of aluminum you will be marking.

How to Laser Mark Aluminum

We recommend using a fiber laser system for laser marking aluminum because it gives the user a great degree of flexibility in the type of mark that can be made and the material that can be marked.
