Laser marking is generally some form of non-contact labeling on a workpiece or material with a laser beam. Marking is both precise and repeatable thereby yielding consistent results. There are multiple processes that can be classified as laser marking such as engraving, surface annealing, ablation or removing material, frosting (for bar codes), foaming, and staining.
Permanent marking and engraving is frequently used for traceability, branding, product identification, MIL-STD-130, NFA , UDI compliance, bar codes, serialization, data matrix, QR codes, and graphics such as logos.
Engraving is a special type of marking that involves removing material to produce a "de-bossed" mark. The process can produce an engraved mark or, where needed, a deep-engraved mark for extra durability. Since engraved markings are cut into the material they stand up to wear very well.
Lasers can be used to precisely cut and/or drill a variety of substrates including acrylic, metals, veneers, etc. The process offers precision and speed that is difficult to match using more traditional manufacturing processes. The CAD-driven process enables easy and rapid design changes.
ILS offers precision laser cutting services with an emphasis on excellent edge quality and tight tolerances. This particular application combines cutting and marking and is often used in the manufacture of control panels and annunciators.
Photo-engraving allows us to render a photo onto a particular substrate by engraving it into the surface. This process works particularly well on marble, granite, stone, glass, wood, leather, anodized metals, and even some textiles.
