Various Substrates

Laser marking systems mark virtually any kind of material. As a whole, they mark a multitude of both inorganic and organic materials: whether metals, plastics, coated materials or exotic materials such as foodstuffs. A complete overview of all markable substances is therefore not practical. A general overview such as the following must of necessity be incomplete, but nevertheless indicates the abundance of possibilities:

  • Metals (coated, anodized and plain metals such as steel, anodized aluminium, iron, brass, gold, silver, platinum, copper, zinc, nickel, silicon, titanium, and a great many more)
  • Plastics (e.g. Thermoplastics [PC, ABS, PVC, PA, PET, PP, PE, PTFE, HDPE, ASA, PMMA, PBT, LDPE, POM, etc.]; Duroplastics [artificial resins such as epoxies, polyester PSE, Bakelite, polyurethane resins]; Elastomers [rubber compounds, silicon, etc.])
  • Laser Sensitive Plastics (plastic substrates doped with additives)
  • Glass
  • Paper and Cardboard
  • Foils
  • Ceramics
  • Wood (including maple, beech, oak, cork for construction purposes, tools, furniture, floor coverings, packaging etc.)
  • Foodstuff (e.g. chocolate, marzipan and other confectionery; fruit; eggs; cheese; bread; meat and sausages, etc.)
  • Textiles and Fabrics (e.g. jeans and leather)

Which laser is most suitable for any given material is ascertained by our application experts and our partners’ experienced sales engineers in collaboration with their clients – in the course of detailed meetings and concrete marking trials on original client materials.
