Machine type usedM Series laser marking system
Laser SourceCO2 laser
Applicationintricate artwork patterns
Completion Year2006
CustomerNike
MaterialHigh density foam

This type of foam can be used for various applications including the inner section of sports shoes. The image has been created to demonstrate deep and shallow laser engraving mixed within the same process sequence. In this case, the laser marking system is fitted with a large area galvo scan field, processing a 600 x 600 mm process area, allowing this large tile to be processed as a single pass process. The best laser source for laser engraving of high density foam is CO2.

Laser Engraving Of High Density Foam

Each of the generated patterns matched the designs used on 6 Nike products, and was used as part of the packaging for the presentation boxes.
These materials could also be processed using flatbed technology such as our LightBlade products.

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…
