Laser Marking & Etching

Lasting Impressions

Laser marking and etching allows us to markup various parts and products to apply serial numbers or model codes to them. The process of using laser marking or etching depends on what type of material needs it or what type of quality the project requires. Laser marking is done with a low-powered beam by discoloring the material. Laser etching is a type of shallow engraving. Both options are viable for a number of materials and projects.


Laser marking creates a high-contrast without actually disrupting the material’s surface. Oxidation occurs under the surface, causing the material to turn black. This process is used for many different reasons, most commonly on metals or plastics. Laser etching is a viable option for thin materials and smaller projects. We will help you decide which is better for your parts or products depending on the job at hand and your materials.

For Use On

Both laser marking and laser etching are great techniques for the medical or automotive industries. Both of these markets benefit from serial number placements or model coding numbers. Laser marking can also be used on flat, curved or round surfaces—making it a very versatile procedure for various projects. Consumer goods and other small products also benefit from these procedures.
