Engraving and Marking


Laser engraving, which is a subset of laser marking, is the practice of using lasers to engrave an object. Laser marking, on the other hand, is a broader category of methods to leave marks on an object, which also includes color change due to chemical/molecular alteration, charring, foaming, melting, ablation, and more.

1. Transverse spatial resolution (typically): > 20 μm
    (Higher resolution is possible on request.)

2. Minimum engraving depth (typically): > 1 μm, depending on materials

3. L value of the black marking: from L = 60 to L = 30

4. Possible colors of the marking: purple, blue, green and yellow.
