What Material We Can Mark / Engrave with Fiber Laser Marking Machine

1. Aluminum
Aluminum is one of the most commonly marked substrates and is used in many industries. Typically, with lighter marking intensity, aluminum will turn white. It looks good when the aluminum is anodized, but white marking is not ideal for bare and cast aluminum. More intense laser settings provide a dark grey or charcoal color.
Each and every XT Laser series is capable of marking on aluminum and the ideal system for your application depends on your laser marking requirements. Ablation is the most common marking technique for anodized aluminum, but some cases call for etching or engraving. Bare and Cast aluminums are typically annealed (resulting in a white color) unless a specification calls for greater depth and contrast.

2. Brass and copper
Brass and copper have high thermal conductivity and thermal transfer properties and are used commonly for wiring, printed circuit boards and pressurized flow meters. Their thermal properties are ideal for laser marking systems for metal because the heat is quickly dissipated. This reduces the impact the laser can have on the structural integrity of the material.

Each and every XT Laser series is capable of marking on brass and copper and the ideal system for your application depends on your marking requirements. The best marking technique depends on the finish of the brass or copper. Smooth surfaces can offer a soft polished marking affect, but they can also be annealed, etched, or engraved. Granular surface finishes offer little opportunity for polish. Etching or engraving is best in order to provide readability by humans and machines. In some cases a dark anneal can work, but surface irregularities can cause reduced readability.

3. Tungsten and Carbide
Tungsten and Carbide are two of the hardest metals on earth and are widely used in tooling and cutting applications. Another popular segment for these substrates is wedding bands for men. Tungsten and carbide are receptive laser marking metals and laser engraving metals.

Each and every XT Laser series is capable of marking on tungsten and carbide and the ideal system for your application depends on your marking requirements. Because these metals are so hard, etching or engraving is typically not recommended. For carbide, because of the darker color it naturally has, getting a contrasting mark is rather easy with even light laser intensity. A white color is most common when polishing or annealing carbide and the contrast is extremely good. Tungsten, being slightly lighter in color, requires an annealed mark to achieve proper contrast.

4. Non-semiconductor ceramics
Non-semiconductor ceramics come in a variety of shapes and forms. Some are very soft and others are hardened providing a lot of variety. In general, ceramics are a difficult substrate to laser mark as they do not typically absorb a lot laser light or wavelength.

XT Laser offers a 532nm Green laser marking system that is better absorbed by certain ceramics. We recommend you have test sampling done to determine the best marking technique to apply to your ceramic material. Ceramics that can be marked are often annealed, but etching and engraving are sometimes possible, too.

5. Chrome
Chrome plating provides a stylish and sophisticated finish, and usually requires minimal laser intensity to remove or get through the plating. Care must be taken to ensure the marking happens on the surface only, with no impact to the chrome plating.

Each and every XT Laser series is capable of marking on chrome plating and the ideal system for your application depends on your marking requirements. We have found that lower powered, faster pulsing lasers yield the best results. Anneal or polish to protect the plating. The annealed marking will be black and the polished marking is typically white.

6. Coated and Painted Metal
There are many types of coatings used to harden or protect metals from corrosive elements. Some coatings, such as powder coat, are thicker and require more intense laser settings to completely remove. Other coatings, like black oxide, are thin and meant to protect only the surface. These are much easier to ablate and will provide great contrast marking.

Each and every XT Laser series is capable of marking on coated and painted metals and the ideal system for your application depends on your marking requirements. The UM-1 provides plenty of power to remove or ablate thinner coatings. It may not be ideal for removing a powder coat but it can easily mark a powder coat. Our more powerful fiber lasers come in 20-50 watts, and can easily remove the powder coat and mark the underlying surface. Our fiber lasers can ablate, etch and engrave coated metals.

7. Fiberglass & Carbon fiber
Fiber-based materials like fiberglass can be marked with limitations. Because they are composed of individual fibers, the structural integrity can be damaged by the laser, resulting in a blurry marking which cannot be scanned.

Carbon fiber is easier to mark, as the laser typically does not threaten the integrity of the material. However, because of the composition and color of the carbon, the resulting laser mark is always black, which limits contrast and readability.

Each and every XT Laser series is capable of marking on fiberglass and carbon fiber and the ideal system for your application depends on your marking requirements. Higher wattage lasers can etch or engrave more quickly, but the lower wattage UM-1 laser can perform the same markings with an extended cycle time. The 532nm Green lasers are also a good choice because they are heavily absorbed and don’t cause a lot of melting.

8. Nickel
Nickel is commonly used as plating. It can be forged or used as the base metal for some parts, but is usually considered too soft for industrial use. The plating is commonly used for protection of parts from corrosive elements. Care must be taken in order to prevent it from becoming pierced or damaged, which would expose the underlying metallic surface.

Each and every XT Laser series is capable of marking on nickel and the ideal system for your application depends on your marking requirements. It is our experience that lower powered, faster pulsing lasers yield the best results. Anneal or polish to protect the plating. The annealed marking will be black and the polished marking is typically white. In the rare case that the entire part is comprised of nickel, all marking techniques are appropriate.

9. Plastics and polymers
Plastics and polymers are by far the most expansive and variable materials that are marked with lasers. There are so many different chemical compositions that you cannot categorize them easily. Some generalizations can be made in terms of markings and how they will appear, but there is always an exception. We recommend test marking to ensure the best results. A good example of material variability is delrin (AKA Acetal). Black delrin is easy to mark, providing stark white contrast against the black plastic. Black delrin is truly an ideal plastic for showcasing the capabilities of a laser marking system. However, natual delrin is white and does not mark at all with any laser. Even the most powerful laser marking system will not make a mark on this material.

Each and every XT Laser series is capable of marking on plastics and polymers, the ideal system for your application depends on your marking requirements. Because plastics and some polymers are soft and can burn while marking, Nd: YVO4 or Nd:YAG may be your best bet. These lasers have lightning fast pulse durations resulting in less heat on the material. 532nm Green lasers can be ideal as they have less thermal energy transfer and also are better absorbed by a wider range of plastics.

The most common technique in plastic and polymer marking is color changing. This type of mark uses the energy of the laser beam to alter the molecular structure of the piece, resulting in a change in the color of the substrate without damaging the surface. Some plastics and polymers can be lightly etched or engraved, but consistency is always a concern.

10. Rubber
Rubber is an ideal substrate for engraving or etching because it is soft and highly absorbent. However laser marking rubber does not offer contrast. Tires and handles are a few examples of markings done on rubber.

Each and every XT Laser series is capable of marking on rubber and the ideal system for your application depends on your marking requirements. The only factors to consider are the speed and depth of the marking, as each laser series offers the same exact marking type. The more powerful the laser, the faster the engraving or etching process will be.

11. semiconductor industry
There is a wide range of materials used in the semiconductor industry. You have ceramics, printed circuit boards, epoxy resins/molds, and silicon integrated circuits to name a few. The big key when marking on semiconductor substrates is precision accuracy and depth control. Accuracy is required to ensure proper placement and readability of markings that are commonly smaller than 1mm in size and read by vision systems. Depth control limits the amount of particulate dust and thermal transfer to protect sensitive electronics or components.

Our 532nm Green laser marking systems are capable of meeting the standards of semiconductor marking applications. The 532nm Green wavelength is inherently cooler than that of IR lasers and provides less thermal transfer. Along with the thermal benefits of the 532nm laser, increased absorption allows for less intense laser settings, which helps with precision depth control. The 532nm lasers are capable of marking directly onto printed circuit boards without exposing the underlying copper layer. These lasers can even mark silicon wafers or integrated circuits that can only be measured in angstroms. Couple these inherent benefits with advanced optical control to create spot sizes as low as 10um, and you have the ideal laser for semiconductor applications.

12. Silver and Gold
Precious metals like silver and gold are very soft. Silver is a tricky material to mark as it oxidizes and tarnishes easily. Gold can be very easy to mark, requiring little power to get a good, contrasting anneal.

Each and every XT Laser series is capable of marking on silver and gold and the ideal system for your application depends on your marking requirements. Because of the value of these substrates, engraving and etching are not common. Annealing allows the surface oxidation to create contrast, removing only a negligible amount of material.

13. Stainless Steel
Next to aluminum, stainless steel is the most commonly marked substrate we see at RMI Laser. It is used in virtually every industry. There are several types of steels, each with varying carbon content, hardness, and finishes. Part geometry and size also vary greatly, but all allow for a variety of marking techniques.

Each and every XT Laser series is capable of marking on stainless steel and the ideal system for your application depends on your marking requirements. Stainless steel lends itself to every laser marking technique used today. Carbon migration or annealing is rather simple and black anneals can be achieved with low or high wattage. Etching and engraving are also easy, because the steel is absorbent and is good enough at thermal transfer to help mitigate damage. Polish marking is possible, too, but it’s a rare choice because most applications require contrast.

14. Titanium
This lightweight super alloy is used heavily in medical and aerospace applications because of its strength, durability and limited mass. Industries that utilize this material carry heavy liability and need to ensure that the marking being performed is safe and non-damaging. Aerospace applications require heavy fatigue testing to ensure no structural damage is incurred by the titanium part by way of Heat Affected Zones (HAZ), recasting/remelt layers, or micro-cracking. Not all lasers are capable of performing such markings. For the medical industry, most titanium parts are actually placed inside of the human body permanently, or for surgical tools which will be used inside of the human body. Because of this, markings must be sterile and durable. Also, these marked parts or tools must be approved by the FDA to ensure that they are truly inert and safe for their intended use.

Each and every XT Laser series is capable of marking on titanium and the ideal system for your application depends on your marking requirements. Titanium lends itself to all marking techniques but the best laser and technique depend on the application. The aerospace industry uses annealing to limit structural damage. Medical instruments are annealed, etched or engraved depending on the intended lifecycle and use of the implement.

Why Should I Purchase A Fiber Laser Marking Machine?

Why a Fiber Laser Marking Machine is Best for Your Business

The use of laser marking has increased over the past two decades, mainly due to its popularity as a labeling medium. Its use carries substantive advantages in identifying product inventories and the ability to provide consumer information on products. The wide range of materials that can be marked using this method also makes it extremely flexible for commercial and industrial purposes. For optimal results, choose a fiber laser marking machine for your business.

How Does Laser Marking Work?

Several types of laser marking machines exist, but the most up-to-date technology available is that of the fiber laser. This kind of laser machine, widely considered to be the best option in existence, uses fiber pumping technology to “dope” the fibers with a rare-earth element such as Ytterbium.
The use of this element increases the ability of the fibers to conduct light-emitting diodes, which are then pumped through the fibers to the optical heads. At that point, the beam of light expands to create the laser marking capability. The beam of light then marks the material using one of four methods:
  • Laser engraving
  • Ablation or removal of a layer of the material
  • Carbon migration or etching of the surface of the material to change the color
  • Bonding
You can use fiber laser marking on a wide range of materials, from different types of metal through to leather and plastics. Types of metals that lend themselves well to fiber laser engraving include platinum, stainless steel, silver, gold and bronze. Carbide, tungsten, copper, aluminum or medical-grade alloys also respond well to fiber laser marking.

Ways to Use Laser Marking

Fiber laser marking, which is also known as laser engraving because of the resulting surface pattern produced by the ablation process, is used for a variety of applications including:

Medical Devices and Equipment – surgical devices and other medical products that require frequent sterilization (often at high temperatures) use identification marks that can withstand the cleansing process without interfering with the health of the patient.

Jewelry Engraving – creation of unique marks to identify or brand items of jewelry has become popular for copyright protection and recovery of stolen property. The precision of laser engraving is also used to personalize pieces such as wedding bands with the vows or the couple’s marriage date.
Laser Cutting – light laser cutting is also very popular in the jewelry industry. Light metals are used to create name cutouts and monograms as well as other design cut outs.

Computerized parts such as printed circuit boards use laser marking to produce clear, high-resolution images that are ink- and acid-free for use in electronic applications.
If you’re in the business of manufacturing or selling any of these types of products, then fiber laser marking equipment is the one you need. This is just a small sampling of the many applications that fiber laser markers are being used for.

Advantages of Fiber Laser Marking

Fiber laser marking technology has a number of advantages over other types of laser marking systems. The equipment is simpler and cheaper to use than other forms, due in part to the minimal maintenance required and the elimination of any consumables. There are a range of different types of laser marking and engraving machines available, including:
  • Fiber (Ytterbaum) 1070 nm
  • CO2 (gas laser)
  • Nd:YAG Flash Lamp (solid state)
  • Nd:YAG Diode Pumped
  • Vanadate (Nd:YVO4)


One of the benefits of using fiber markers is minimal part replacement – the diodes have a significant lifespan so there’s no need to budget extensively for parts. When they need replacement, it can be done in the field without requiring a qualified technician to perform any laser alignment.

Then there’s the convenience. The air-cooled design is more convenient than models that use water for cooling purposes, and the quality of the laser beam is better than most of the other types of laser marking machines available. And in terms of space requirements, the equipment has an exceptionally small footprint, which means you can place it in almost any location and operate it without using precious space. This makes it much easier to integrate into an assembly line, or a small factory or workshop without reconfiguring your entire production facility. Overall, fiber laser marking technology is vastly more convenient and cost-effective than other types of marking and engraving machines.

How to Process a Photo for Engraving on Wood

Fiber lasers produce a fine continuous laser beam that make it possible for these lasers to be used to cut small components with a high degree of accuracy. When coupled with a CNC controlled manipulator, a fiber laser can manufacture small components suitable for use in precision machinery, jewelry, instruments and electronics.

Laser Cutting ApplicationsThis ability makes precision laser cutting applications a viable alternative to miniature mechanical precision turning and machining equipment.

Watch our Fiber Laser Cutting System in action. View our laser cutting videos below:


Fiber Laser Systems

A fiber laser system is a solid-state laser that produces a narrow beam with a very high intensity. The laser can operate in continuous mode and this ability improves the quality of the surface finish on the final component. The laser has the ability to cut thin materials at high linear speeds.  It has a compact design and does not require complex optics. Fiber lasers are very stable and have low maintenance requirements.

4-Axis CNC Control

Sophisticated cutting using a fiber laser is made possible through the use of a 4-axis CNC controlled motion control device that can position components to within one thousandths of an inch (0.02 mm). The laser is equipped with motion control software that positions the part under the laser head giving the ability to cut complex shapes in three dimensions as well as to rotate the part while cutting.

Materials That Can Be Cut

The intense narrow light beam of a fiber laser allows it to cut materials that are usually difficult to cut with conventional laser systems. These include highly reflective metals such as copper, precious metals such as silver and gold, ceramics and plastics. Other materials that can be cut include mild steel, high strength steels, stainless steel, titanium, and platinum.

High Tolerances

The fiber laser is capable of achieving an accuracy of one thousandths of an inch (0.02 mm). The continuous nature of the light beam eliminates the slight roughness often apparent with pulsed lasers and requires no maintenance or adjustment, which ensures repeatability. The 4-axis motion control mechanism uses servo motors for positioning and has a reticulating ball transmission that’s adjustable to eliminate mechanical play.

It’s important to note that tolerances for laser cutting applications are affected by material softness and melting point, especially when processing softer precious metals.


Although the fiber laser has the ability to cut and machine to tight tolerances, productivity is high as the laser is capable of cutting at speeds of up to 8 inches per seconds (200 mm/s). Overall productivity depends upon the thickness of the material being cut, its characteristics, and the complexity of the cut required.

Specialized Applications

Laser cutting and machining is the first step in the manufacture of complex components for many industries including the medical device, automotive, aerospace, jewelry and general manufacturing industries that require small and micro components.

Examples of component parts that can be produced include:

Medical Devices: Various medical device and component parts crafted from titanium, platinum, and ceramics.

Automotive: various component parts used in the assembly of automobiles

Electronics: Semi-Conductor chips

Watch and Clock Components: laser cutting can be used to make escapement wheels, shafts, and gears

Jewelry Manufacturing: monograms, necklaces, and earrings made with precious metals

Fiber Laser Cutting to be Widely Used in the Automotive Industry

In the automotive industry in recent years the application of laser cutting, laser cutting has become a domestic processing industry is an important technology, using laser cutting is not only easy to automate, but also has high economic efficiency. Currently laser laser cutting machine used mainly two: one is from the carbon dioxide laser, the other is a solid-state neodymium – yttrium aluminum garnet laser. Lasers are usually chosen based on the nature of the material to be processed may be, because different materials suitable to absorb different wavelengths of laser beams. The metal material generally easy absorption wavelength of 1.06μm laser beam, and the plastic and the ceramic composite is easy absorption wavelength of 10.6μm laser beam.

Carbon dioxide laser is currently the most widely used laser with output power of 50 ~ 1500W, the wavelength of the laser beam is 10.6μm, mainly used for cutting, drilling and welding. Laser cutting may be at a speed of about 7.5m per minute, the cutting width of only 0.1 ~ 0.3mm, so that it can be cut, “heat affected zone” to minimize, and was cut out of the outline is clear, no glitches. As the laser drilling speed, and thus solve the problem in breakable ceramic on drilling, such as diamond in a thickness of 0.6mm diameter 1.3mm ceramic empty each time only 0.3S. Some countries have been replaced with carbon dioxide laser, electron beam welding equipment, laser welding may not necessarily be carried out in a vacuum so as electron beam, thus simplify the process and reduce costs. Solid state Nd – YAG laser into the industrial applications of time is relatively short, the output power of 10 ~ 400W, the laser beam wavelength of 1.06μm, easily absorbed by the metal material, currently used in low-power precision drilling and electronics industry The closure welding and spot welding process.

Laser cutting technology is widely used in metal and non-metallic materials processing, it can greatly reduce the processing time, reduce processing costs, improve quality of the workpiece. Modern laser has become the people to pursue the fantasy “cut iron drunk” and “sword.” In Golden Laser CO2 laser cutting machine, for example, the entire system by the control system, the motor system, an optical system, cooling system, exhaust and blowing protection system, etc., using the most advanced model to achieve multi-axis CNC and laser from the impact of energy such as cutting speed, while supporting DXP, PLT, CNC and other graphic formats and graphics rendering process to strengthen the capacity of the interface; with superior performance servo motor and transmission-oriented architecture to achieve good movement precision at high speeds.

Laser cutting machine is the high power density energy generated laser focused to achieve. Under the control of the computer, the laser pulse discharge, so that the output frequency of the controlled high repetition pulsed laser, a certain frequency, a certain width of the beam, the pulsed laser beam through optical transmission and reflection and focused by the focusing lens group Processing on the surface of the object, forming a fine, high energy density spot, focal spot is located near the surface to be processed, to instantaneous high temperature melting or vaporization material to be processed. Each laser pulse instantly put a high surface energy of sputtered a small hole, under computer control, laser processing head and the workpiece material at a pre-painted good graphics for continuous relative motion RBI, putting objects such as machining desired shape. When cutting, an air stream coaxial with the beam ejected from the cutting head, melted or vaporized material blown from the bottom of the incision (Note: If the blowing gas and the material being cut to produce thermal efficiency response, this response will provide cutting additional energy required; airflow cooling the cutting surface also reduce the heat-affected zone and ensure no contamination of the focusing lens effect). Compared with the traditional method of sheet metal processing, laser cutting its high cutting quality (narrow kerf width, small heat-affected zone, clean cut), high cutting speed, high flexibility (can easily cut any shape), wide range of materials Advantages adaptability.

US General Motors Corporation cars using carbon dioxide laser power 1000W cut into the exhaust pipe, not only improve the effectiveness of 30%, and cutting quality. Ford Motor Company uses a carbon dioxide laser cutting 1500W PVC composite materials, high efficiency, but also automation. Italian Fiat car company in the production line installed laser – robot combination system not only saves labor, but also to speed up the production process.

Russia also used the laser machinery industry. A factory with laser locomotive traction engine block used for quenching success. Lasers can be processed within one second surface heated to 1000 ℃, rapid hardening, completely avoid the deformation processing site, and the part surface wear resistance is increased by 50%.

Japan’s Nissan Motor Company using laser surface-treated steel sheet to improve the gloss paint has been successful. This approach is in front of a thin steel sheet painting, etching the surface with a laser beam, the steel surface to form a uniform diameter and depth of countless tiny space, and then the paint treatment. This will not only improve the gloss, but paint does not come off easily.
Volkswagen uses a combination of laser and robotic systems, processing vehicle dashboard shell, using a carbon dioxide laser 400W power play, can save processing costs $ 600,000 per year. Another German car company using carbon dioxide laser welding galvanized steel, the use of machine vision systems to monitor the welding process, greatly improving production efficiency.

Because of the many advantages of laser cutting of some countries to vigorously carry out research and development of new laser cutting machine tools, such as Japan and the United States have created a laser cutting machine. With the development of science and technology, laser applications in the industrial sector will become increasingly important.

Laser Application on Jewellery Field of Laser Cutting Names and Monograms

Considering the current trend toward personalization in jewelry, creating name and monogram jewelry quickly and accurately to order with a laser engraving machine is beneficial in today’s market—and it doesn’t require special design skills. “The benefit of laser technology is that it allows a user who doesn’t have a tremendous amount of design experience to look like an expert,” The only limits are the creativity of the user. In minutes, the laser engraving system can cut intricate patterns that would take hours by hand. The following are tips and tricks for laser cutting applications.

What Types of Metals Can Be Laser Cut?
laser cutting name designs
All jewelry metals, precious and non-precious, can be laser cut—from gold and silver to stainless steel and titanium. For most types of laser equipment, metal thicknesses of up to 1mm work well for cutting out pendants, charms, keepsakes, and monograms. As a general rule for name jewelry designs, a thickness of 0.5 to 0.8 mm will suffice.
The different properties of each metal make the laser-cutting process unique for each, including these three popular metals used in name jewelry designs:
Gold cuts well because it is a good conductor of thermal energy, but proper settings for the metal are required. (Check with your laser supplier, as settings vary by model.) Ariel Fapakhob, owner of Fine Laser Cut in New York City, finds that each gold alloy cuts differently. “White gold cuts better than yellow, and pink is harder to cut and takes more energy because the copper makes it more reflective,” he says.
Silver is tough to work with because it retains heat from the laser and can start to flex and warp when you are working with it. To prevent this from happening, heat-sink the silver using a bracket or clamping fixture to transfer heat away from the affected area.
“Most of the samples we take to shows are in sterling,” says Gervais. “If you can do it in silver, you can do it in any metal.”
When working with stainless steel, operate the laser at fast cutting speeds (300-500 mm/sec) to ensure that the metal doesn’t weld to itself. Also, the iron in the steel will splatter if the laser is moving too slowly.

Laser Cutting Names and Monograms

Depending on the power of the laser engraving machine, the thickness of the metal, and the intricacy of the design, a name or monogram can be cut out in about five to 25 minutes. When cutting such pieces, try the following tips:
When it comes to font choice, stick with those that have uniform widths across all letters—no super narrow areas, suggests Kyung Paeng, owner of Soul Jewelry in Los Angeles. He’s found that fonts with letters that narrow in places leave a potentially weaker area that can break.
When in doubt, select the bold feature on a font to enhance the strength of the letters and reduce the kerning, suggests Gervais.
To save the step of soldering on rings for attaching a necklace to a name pendant, program the machine to cut an eyelet on eachlaser name cutout side of the piece as the names are being cut. Engraved patterns and textures can also be programmed as part of the process.
Collect cut-out sections of precious metal designs, such as the centers of the letters “c,” “a,” and “e,” to refine as clean scrap. The fine dust generated by the cutting process is automatically collected in a filter that can be sent out for refining.
