Why Laser Coding

There are many laser processes out there and one of them is laser coding, also known as laser marking solutions. You might be asking yourself why laser coding? If you are, then read on because we’ll discuss a few of the key advantages that it offers. Afterwards, you can decide whether or not to use laser marking.

Laser coding involves a process that is non-contact. What this means is the laser beam will only affect the area of the material being heated. This lessens the risk of damaging the other areas of the materials.

For example, let’s say you’re using laser printing on a product/item that features 3-4 different types of materials. You want to have something printed in one specific area. With laser coding, you’ll be able to do just that, all without worrying about damaging the other 2-3 areas of the material. The end result is an item that is flawless.

It Won’t Strip Away Materials
Another benefit of laser marking is the material will not be stripped away. It doesn’t matter what you’re working with, you can rest assure all of the material will be left intact. As previously mentioned, laser marking targets a specific area to heat up. When this happens, oxidisation occurs.

When oxidisation occurs, the surface beneath the material changes colours. The end result is a mark that is permanent. If you don’t want to risk the chance of stripping away materials you’re working with, such as the case is with laser engraving, then you should use laser coding.

Quality and Precise Markings
There are two more benefits of laser coding, with one being precise markings. It doesn’t matter what kind of mark you’re trying to leave or what area of the material it is on, laser marking will get the job done. Simply choose the area where the mark needs to go and you’re all set.

Besides that, the markings will be of high quality. Both machines and the human eye will have no problems reading the markings. The bottom line is if quality and precision are important to you, then there’s no better laser printing process than laser coding.

Those are the key benefits of laser coding. It doesn’t matter what project you’re going to work on, if it is going to involve laser printing, then look into laser coding. If you’re not sure what to do, then hire a professional to help you out.
