A simple looking job that is a little more complicated than you first think. The brass cup is inserted into the instrument panel and requires to be aligned in a certain orientation. However, the assembly process means that you cannot see the front of the well during assembly. Therefore, as part of the laser marking, we provide an alignment mark on the bottom outer part of the well. We utilize this mark, to ensure the brass is well aligned when we process inside, providing it is a perfect alignment.
Brass has been laser marked using Nd:YAG Q switched laser, at a reasonably high power to overcome the huge reflective value of the material and its ability to dissipate heat very quickly.
