A cost effective, repeatable process

For products that require individual part identification, branding or traceability information, laser marking can be a cost effective alternative to more traditional methods such as stamping, etching or mechanical engraving.

Laser marking removes the day to day variations that can normally occur when using chemicals and inks and replaces them with a well-defined, repeatable, high-quality permanent mark at an affordable cost level; ideal for the demanding nature of today’s manufacturing. Laser engraving is an effective method of removing material from the surface of a product to leave a permanent, physical mark.

So how do you get started with a laser marking and laser engraving service?

Find out how

Tell us what you need to achieve, and ensure you tell us:-

– What you need to mark (CAD/CAM drawings are always good to have, artwork is best supplied in a vector based format).
– What materials you will use for your components? (include any information about coatings where applicable).
– How many will you need to mark? (Estimate batch size if you can, it will help in generating a more accurate response to prices and delivery).
– Will you require first off samples to evaluate?
– When will you need them back?

 

We will respond by giving you:-

A per unit cost to laser mark your parts (all pricing is based on a machine hourly rate and will include any specialist tooling).

A heads up on any options you have regarding the material process (we may suggest changes to your marking in order to enhance the results or provide more cost effective solution).

Any potential pitfalls with the type of application you have.

Simple and straight forward advice on the application (how to get the best economics from the laser marking process).

How long the job will take (delivery times as well as delivery methods).

You Decide

If you are happy with samples, price and delivery times we have quoted then you place an order.

You send us your parts and know that you will be looked after as if we were doing the job for ourselves.

Terminology

Laser marking and engraving are generic terms used to describe a method of leaving a mark on an object.  Marking tends to cover low level surface changes which include chemical or molecular alteration, charring, foaming, melting, ablation as examples. Engraving tends to describe the more aggressive results of deeper marking.
