Laser Etching Zinc Alloys
Laser etching is a fast process that can create black & white markings on zinc and zinc alloys. Fiber lasers are the most efficient at generating permanent & high-contrast identifiers on these materials. You can etch barcodes, data matrix codes, QR codes, serial numbers, logos and even more on all types of zinc parts. These may include:
High-Contrast & Permanent Laser Marking on Zinc
For the best contrast, black markings are etched on a white background. Such a high-quality contrast guarantees optimal inline readability.
Laser technology allows you to replace two outdated technologies:
- Printed labels, which tend to be damaged or fall off
- Dot peening, whose low contrast often requires special lighting conditions
Laser etching is the only laser marking process that works well with zinc. Laser engraving does not generate a good contrast.
