Our Nd:YAG & Fiber systems are most suited to laser engraving aluminium, CO2 systems can also be used to give a “frosted” effect however for fast, clear, precise marking on both anodised and uncoated aluminium, our fiber laser engraving machines are the best choice. Laser marking has been proven successful and is relied upon globally for etching metals, owing to the durability of the mark and that no unwanted damage occurs on the metal. With anodised aluminium, the hard (approx. 8 – 30 µm) protective anodic coating is not completely removed. A contrast in image is produced by the laser, changing the colour of the oxide coating, allowing an almost photographic quality, this is achieved via a multitude of grey-scales and the extremely high resolution / accuracy of the laser. Laser engraving aluminium has become popular due to the speed, quality of the mark produced, reliability, low-cost and pre-fabrication options available through the software. You will find our software’s material library exceptionally extensive and customisable, allowing you to get up and marking quickly and effectively.

Suggested systems suitable for etching aluminium
There are a number of different solutions suitable for marking aluminium, if you are looking to keep costs very low then a handheld or desktop dot-peen system could be a good choice.
For higher precision, versatility and speed a Fiber laser marking system is definitely the best option, although a Nd:YV04 or Nd:YAG powered laser engraver would certainly be up to the task.
