Laser Marking Powder Coated Aluminum

The Specifications

For this project the specifications included: 

Industry: Electronic Equipment

Part Type: Front Panel

Material: Die Cast Aluminum with Powder Coating

Mark Data Type: Text + Logo

Laser Mark Type: Laser Etching, multiple passes for consistent burn through powder coating

The Process 

Laser marking time is 150 seconds for this logo that is over 6 inches long and one inch high.  The time could be reduced but this particular customer desired a very crisp and consistent logo because it was the primary brand mark on the equipment.

Laser Marking 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.

A Jimani Langolier Desktop is a turn key system and versatile tool for most manufacturing and processing environments.  The Desktop Langolier is designed to be a compact, stand alone laser marking station flexible enough to handle one off samples and mid-range production runs. Rigid part holders or a choice of Z axis travel lab jacks can be used to place to work at the focal plane of the Desktop Langolier's beam focusing lens.

All Langolier fiber laser marking systems are supplied with Prolase, a user friendly, proven, robust laser marking systems software package very easy to use for importing and manipulating graphics files for brands, logos, and schematic files.
