Laser Marking

Nd-YAG-Lasergravur

 

Laser Inscription describes the process of engraving miscellaneous materials and surfaces by an Nd-YAG-Laser. The body-geometry of the parts is flexible - flat as well as coated surfaces can be engraved with the same precision.

For being economically efficient, laser technology is a good choice for long-lasting, durable and indestructible bar code labels or for continuous numbering of items. High precision, short delivery times and quantities as low as 1 piece mark laser inscription as an attractive process.

Technology

Technology lasers are mostly categorized and named according to the applied optically active material.

The Nd-YAG-Laser belongs to the category of solid body lasers which includes optically stimulated lasers which consist of a strengthening medium of crystalline or vitreous solid bodies. The wave length is 1064 nm.

Highly-precise labelling by Nd:YAG laser technology works without power or additives between laser-beam and the surface of the component. During the inscription process, the beam is guided by a computerized optical system to the surface of the material. Depending on material and laser preferences, the inscription appears as tempering color, color change, engraving or surface ablation. This highly efficient technology excludes aftertreatment or preparation. Since no other additives are applied, laser inscription is a very environmentally friendly technology.

Application

Laser inscription is applied in the optical industry, fine mechanics, medical technology, as well as in toolmaking, automotive, and electronics industries.

 

Examples

Optical parts, tools, stainless front panels, laser sheet labels, backs of watches, implants, scales made from stainless steel, plastics, coated metals, anodized aluminum, acrylate sheets, steel etc.

CO2-Lasergravur

Contrary to our Nd-YAG-Lasers, the CO2 laser is a flat bed system with a working range of 900 x 600 mm, a maximum workpiece height of 350 mm and 60 watt power. This technology is versatile and applies for vectorized as well as half-tone engravings from 75 to 1200 dpi.

 

Technology

The CO2 laser belongs to the class of aeriform lasers.

Accordingly the active medium is aerial and consists of a wavelength of 10640 nm. The laser beam is guided through 2 reflectors to a "flying optics". This optics focuses the laser and guides it pinpointly and exactly positioned to the workpiece. It works similar to the bundling of sunlight with a lens for cutting paper.

Application

Flat or round workpieces, logos or photos, texts of any kind, either as a stamp or a wood engraving – everything can be realized in a short period of time. The variety of insciption and cutting possibilities knows no bounds.
