These medical components are manufactured from titanium and finished with an anodised type coating. The result from laser marking of Titanium medical devices can be between blue and black on the colour chart, and is directly related to the temperature reached during the marking process. The process creates a dark blue-black mark on the surface without removing any material. Character heights are 1.2mm high.

Laser Marking Of Titanium Medical Device

Titanium anodizing, provides products with improved properties compared to those in a raw or “unfinished” state. Test data validates numerous mechanical benefits, and observation with a 10x eyepiece, reveals the levelling effects of the process. Scars from machining and/or de burring are ‘levelled’ into a continuous, smoother, grey-coloured surface. The two most common types of treatment are Type 2 anodizing and colour anodizing.

The information required includes size, batch number for traceability and CE mark details. ATC Ltd

In today’s market, these components would be laser marked using Fibre technology. Ideally suited for these kind of materials, the fibre laser can pulse at much higher rates and much higher speeds.

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…
