Laser Engraving Multi Layer Laminate Application

The image is a 2D code, known as a QR code, generated by laser engraving, and contains a URL address that when scanned, takes you to a website where you can find the history of the deceased (the main target audience is pet owners). Apparently, this service is very big in Japan and North America, but has yet to take off over here in the UK . The laminate has the top surface removed by laser engraving, to expose the second layer of black to create the black and white code.

Laser engraving multi layer laminate, is an effective way of achieving greater contrast when attempting to create a black mark. This is often done by coating the material in a substance through a process called TherMark. The end result, is a permanent laser marking on the surface of the material. The laser source was CO2, with the marking being very fast and clean.

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…
