Anodised Aluminum is hard wearing, maintenance-free and adaptable for applications including signs, rating plates, control panel fascias and labels. The quality surface layer will not crack, peel or chip and can be exposed to sunlight with full UV stability.
Our laser engraving machines can ‘mark’ stainless steel using a process called annealing. During the annealing process, no material is removed and there is no ablation unlike when laser engraving. Annealing does however produce a colour change in the material as it is heated. For example, stainless steel, changes colour when it reaches temperatures between 200 and 300°C. Annealing can be used for a wide range of applications, including laser marking ball bearings and dataplates.
We cannot cut stainless steel, therefore materials must be ordered in pre-fabricated to the finished size required prior to laser engraving.
