Laser Marking

Laser marking or burning is a general technique in which the laser interacts with the material to create a durable, high-contrast mark on the surface.

  • Laser marking is commonly applied to metals.
  • The mark is durable with medium to dark contrast.

The Details

General marking aggressively burns the surface of the material. Depending on the substrate, the mark will vary in color from medium brown to black or gray. The marked surface will feel rough to the touch and feature areas of rise and fall of material. This creates a durable result on the component.

Moataz Ibrahim, Protocase Incorporated

I have been nothing but pleased with the entire process and relationship I have had with Tykma. I bought a Minilase a couple years ago and everything went off without a hitch.

Jeff Forbush, Owner, 4Bush Weapons Systems

The TYKMA Minilase 20W fiber laser has been a great asset for us. We were able to quickly migrate our production from older laser technology to the Minilase. It produces a higher quality mark in less time.
