Laser Engraving on Aluminium

Anodised aluminium is one of the most common metals used for laser marking purposes. Aluminium itself is a very widely used metal which is valued for its combination of being both lightweight and durable. This unique combination has made it the material of choice for aircraft and automotive products. The high electrical conductivity of aluminium has also made it an excellent material for long-distance power lines, satellite dishes, and in electrical components found in most household appliances and power systems

Aluminium in Industrial Applications

The presence of the anodised layer makes the metal particularly well-suited for industrial engraving and marking purposes. A fiber laser or a CO2 laser can be effectively used with anodised aluminium. Depending on the thickness of the anodised layer and whether a dye was used to colour the layer, different laser treatments may be used to get the best results. Laser engraving anodised aluminium is the most commonly used process for creating permanent and legible marks on signs and promotional tags. Promotional items such as key chains, pens, bottle openers, and flasks can be marked with a company’s brand or logo.

Aluminium is a very malleable and ductile material which makes it a versatile material for many consumer goods. Modern smartphones, laptops, and tablets are made with increasingly large portions of aluminium. Being light and easy to shape, the metal is also becoming a common component in chairs, lamps, decorative panels, and other interior design elements. Aluminium is food-safe, non-toxic, and resistant to rust – after all, aluminium cans have been used to package carbonated drinks since the 1960’s.
