Crystal clear – CO2 and UV laser marking on glass

Glass is best marked with UV or CO2 laser systems. The energy input can be kept low to minimize the effect of microcracking.

Both marking methods create easily readable and resistant characters by means of engraving or colour change, which are optically different on closer inspection. While the UV laser marks are even, finely rasterized areas, the resolution of the CO2 marking appears in coarser pixels.

Laser Marking on Bearings – Engraving versus Annealing Marking

For sample marking on ball bearings, we applied marks with two different procedures for demonstration purposes: laser engraving on the outside, laser annealing on the inside circle. Both markings are robust and durable. For heavily used metal substrates like some bearings, the preferred marking method is often laser engraving, because the marking remains readable even in highly abrasive use.
