Laser Marking Systems

Laser marking is a process used to engrave or mark patterns and alphanumeric characters onto a surface. Laser marking uses the heat of the laser to alter the surface, a coating, or a bonding agent in order to place the marking on the surface or remove material in order to engrave the mark. Laser marking systems typically include the laser, a table to mount the workpiece onto, and a control mechanism used to move the laser and/or workpiece, and a controller used to automate the marking process.
