The Advantages of Laser Marking Metal

Karly Baldi is the international sales and marketing manager for AlumaMark and DuraBlack. Karly has over 10 years of experience marketing AlumaMark and DuraBlack, and is responsible for managing distribution, marketing, and technical support of the two brands.

One of the main advantages of laser marking metal is durability.

Physically – metal labels can survive in harsher conditions in terms of heat, abrasion, and can be attached with adhesive or mechanical fasteners.

Perceived – Higher perceived value with added weight, rigidity, and in appearance. Biggest drawback being, parts cannot be marked and cut out with a standard marking laser, like they can when marking plastics.  Metal needs to be cut using either a metal shear or a high-power CO2.
