Day-Night Laser Marking Application – Synapse

Known as day-night laser marking, the effect for back lighting the button is achieved by having multiple layers of coated inks. The laser marking is used to remove the upper layer to expose a lighter under coating. In this particular case the design is for a development console for the vehicle to show the design layout and effects.

The critical element of the process, is in the control of the ink thickness, both across the part but also from batch to batch. This allows the laser parameters to be set so that the material is removed without leaving residue (if the material is too thick), or burning the lower level (if the material is too thin).

These examples are produced by the model makers and used in the development  of the prototypes for the automotive customer

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…
