Laser markings are water-proof and wipe-proof and extremely durable. They can be created quickly, automatically and for individual applications. The various methods of laser marking are explained in detail here.

When metal is heated, its color is altered due to an annealing effect. The laser allows the creation of areas and structures / textures on the workpiece surface in different colors without the use of additives. More about the Laser annealing process, click here.
During this process, the surface of the material is very slightly roughened, which creates a visible marking on the workpiece. More about the laser process deep engraving can be found here.
Deep marking is the selective and slightly sunk marking of the workpiece. More about the laser process deep marking, click here.
Certain types of plastics can be marked by means of foaming. Hereby, the laser beam fuses the surface of the plastic. During this process, gas bubbles are created in the plastic, which are included in the material during the cooling-down phase. Because of the included gas, the volume of the affected material increases and the locations, which have been laser-processed, appear raised. More about the laser process foaming, click here.
Color alteration and bleaching with the laser.
This effect can only be achieved with plastics, certain types of paint and a few technical ceramics. The effect depends on the wave length of the laser beam. The laser beam penetrates into the material and is absorbed by color pigments. When the pigments change chemically, this causes the color of the material to change.
