About Elite Laser Marking - Engraving - Etching

What's the difference between laser marking, laser etching and laser engraving?

Thanks to industrial and government regulations regarding clearly legible product and part identification, the processes of laser marking, laser etching and laser engraving are increasing in popularity.


All three of these laser services provide a permanent marking solution, fulfilling regulations and adding distinction to your products and parts.


But what sets them apart?

Although these terms are often used interchangeably, there are differences between laser marking, laser etching and laser engraving. Each type of process has its own applications and attributes that make it ideal for different jobs.


Laser engraving is usually the most common option for someone who wants something personalized or customized. When engraving, the surface of the material is removed and you can feel the difference caused by the new depth when you run your finger over the surface. You can engrave almost all kinds of metal, plastics, wood, leather and glass and as the surface has been burned off, the engraving will never wipe off. You can see a sample of logo engravings on an aluminum surface. It has quite a good industrial feel to it.



Laser Marking

Laser marking (or annealing) is very classy but less common and not all places will provide the service. In simple words, the laser beam heats the material and causes slight material property changes (oxidation) under the surface. As a result, the material turns black but the surface is left intact and you won’t even feel a thing when running your finger over it. The best results are seen with metals.

Laser Etching

The “laser etching” method is the most common and most cost efficient way to get your products permanently marked or branded. Whether for product traceability or logo branding, this method delivers high contrasting, vivid images in a very rapid manner. The laser etching method involves the use of a laser beam removing a slight amount of material from the surface of the product being marked (.0001”-.001”) of depth. The laser beam will rapidly pass across the surface of the image, vaporizing (blasting) away microscopic fragments of material, creating an attractive detailed image in a variety of materials but most commonly metals. It can be used to remove a skin of material such as plating or anodizing, revealing the substrate material and in some cases a high contrasted mark. The markings created by this method are generally permanent, attractive and low cost as compared to other methods of part marking such as laser engraving, CNC Rotary engraving and chemical etching.
