Direct Part Marking

Plastic

300res799 copyaaaFor applying aesthetic, permanent features on plastic, laser marking has become a welcomed alternative from existing printing and silk-screening applications. Within the plastic, the laser’s radiation is absorbed by the polymer and converted to a thermal energy. Given the vast portfolio of plastic make-up, this thermal energy will react in a variety of marking fashions on the surface…

  • Foaming – The release of small gas bubbles, which scatter light for a lighter surface mark.
  • Charring / Carbonization – Thermal degradation of the plastic resulting in a darker mark.
  • Ablation / Engraving – The removal of a single or multiple surface layers creating a dark impression within the material.

Our R&D resources are extended to formulate the right laser solution for a sharper, more vivid image – samples are included for design and quality assessment. PLT provides cost-effective part marking services regardless of the parts growth stage and extends advisory services for complete in-line marking integration for mature, high-volume parts.

Anodized Aluminum

Anodizing serves as a protective coating and hardener for fabricated aluminum parts. As an add-on, the ability to dye the anodized layer offers a contrasting backdrop for laser markings.
