About Laser Marking
Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Laser marking is a non-contact thermal process that uses the heat generated by a laser beam to alter the surface of the work piece. The laser light must be absorbed by the material surface to generate the required heat for marking. Several marking methods are possible with lasers, making them the most flexible technology available for high-quality, permanent product identification.
