Marking anodised aluminum labels

UK distributor Laser Lines is now offering the Synrad range of CO2 Lasers which are suitable for metal marking applications due to their flexibility and durability and in this case ideally suited to marking anodized aluminium.

During marking, the pigment in the anodise coating is essentially ‘bleached’ by the CO2 beam so the protective coating remains intact.

The goal of this application is to mark anodised aluminum label plates using 40 watts of power while fully ablating the black anodise coating. The overall cycle time to mark each label is 23.8 seconds.

The serialised data in both black anodised rectangles was marked using 40 watts of power at a velocity of 2.5 inches per second in an overall cycle time of 23.8 seconds per label.
