Laser marking systems
Engraving, ablation, tempering, discolouring and foaming
Our marking lasers mark a wide variety of materials and products on a daily basis. Due to the excellent marking speed and the consistently high quality of the markings, Östling marking lasers are ideal for a wide variety of industries and applications.
Östling marking lasers mark, engrave and mark metals as well as plastics, ceramics, glass, silicon and organic materials with a high-precision laser beam in the most accurate, forgery-proof, durable and reliable manner.
Laser marking covers a wide range of surface treatment techniques: engraving, ablation, tempering, discoloration and foaming.
Östling laser marking systems are extremely compact and flexible with high quality.
With the corresponding software, there are hardly any limits to your ideas regarding laser marking. Our laser marking systems are also ideally suited for automated markings such as serial numbers, 2D codes (DataMatrix), etc.
Typical applications for laser markings
The following marking methods are possible with our laser systems
Per laser beam, a recess is engraved into the workpiece during laser marking. The material evaporates or melts. The depth of the marking is up to 50 µm.
This is a special form of engraving. In the case of metals, for example, an anodised/lacquered layer can be removed to expose the underlying layer (of a different colour).
Here the color of metals is changed by the heat of the laser beam and the atmospheric oxygen. There is no material removal worth mentioning. In this form of laser marking, the laser beam penetrates the metal by a maximum of 5 µm.
Laser marking by colour change (discolouration) can be carried out on most plastics and some paints. Special additives ensure a high-contrast colour change at the point of impact of the laser beam by our marking lasers.
The heat of the laser beam thermally decomposes the plastic at the points where it impinges. Gaseous decomposition products are produced and the plastic foams up.
