Laser Marking Anodised Aluminium

Laser Marking Anodised Aluminium – Electrical Symbols

Anodising has become a dominant form of finishing for aluminium. This is largely due to its cost effectiveness, availability and suitability, across a whole host of applications and industrial sectors. Laser marking anodised aluminium, has also become an accepted process across these industrial sectors. As like with our customer HGL Dynamics

Product Branding By Laser Marking Anodised Aluminium

Product branding by laser marking anodised Aluminium

A good example of product branding by laser marking anodised aluminium is customer Dynamic Audio. It is used in high end audio accessories in the form of cable tidies.  The aluminium is highly polished, prior to anodising, in order to achieve the high gloss finish on the part.

The laser process, delivers small pulses of energy to the component surface. These pulses have enough energy to vaporise the surface of the aluminium where the anodised…

Laser Engraving Anodised Aluminium Scaling

Laser engraving anodised Aluminium scaling

This example shows laser engraving anodised Aluminium scaling. The laser delivers small pulses of energy which heat the material surface until it vapourises. This removes the layer that contains the black anodising exposing the base material below. Providing the required contrast between the two finishes.

The application - To create laser engraving anodised aluminium scaling guides.

The guides are for the side of a machine providing a quick…

Laser Marking Of Anodised Aluminium Climbing Equipment

Product branding by Laser Marking of Anodised Aluminium climbing equipment

Laser marking of anodised aluminium climbing equipment is a widely used application across many industrial sectors. The anodised process is removed to expose the aluminium base material using laser engraving.

The process of product branding by laser marking of anodised aluminium climbing equipment

The finished image is created, when the laser removes material from the surface in a raster scan motion. This is followed by the laser beam…

Laser Marking Black Anodised Aluminium

Laser marking black anodised aluminium

The example shows laser marking black anodised aluminium. Removing the anodising creates high character contrast ideal for this application.

Anodising explained

Anodising is an electrolytic passivation, widely used across industry on aluminium for a variety of reasons. The process offers a range of colour variations through the use of colour dying. The process changes the microscopic texture of the aluminium by modifying the crystal structure near the surface.

Laser Marking Curved Surfaces

Laser marking curved surfaces

Laser marking curved surfaces is common place on industrial products today. As long as the basic rules are followed it is a fairly easy process to complete.

In this example by our customer Custom Divers, the material is aluminium which absorbs the laser energy very well, making laser marking on curved surfaces much easier.

The laser has a focal position, which is where…

Laser Marking Corporate Logo

Laser marking corporate logo

Laser marking corporate logo onto clear anodised aluminium

This cylindrical product is manufactured from aluminium,  is clearly anodised in order to have the surface more tolerant to handling and daily usage. Laser processing was selected, due to its flexibility and process speed proving attractive per unit costs. Laser marking corporate logo taking place directly onto the aluminum.

Laser marking using fibre lasers

Aluminium laser engraving is common place in industry today. In this example, we are laser engraving aluminium defining the product details along with some technical information. The main stipulation from the customer , is the part will be clearly anodised following the marking, so we are instructed to ensure the depth and clarity of marking will withstand the anodising process.

Aluminium Laser Engraving

Aluminium laser engraving – sheet material

In this example, the aluminium laser engraving is performed on aluminium plate. The application is custom label tags for boxes containing snooker cues - Mojo Cues. The laser engraving aluminium produces either personal details, or in this case, organisations who ultimately sell the products to their fans. In this case, a West Bromwich fan.
