Laser engraving of stainless steel
Marking stainless steel
Machine parts, tools, structural components or everyday objects – laser engraving can mark workpieces made of all types of chromium-nickel steel alloys precisely, easily and in great detail. With the unique Quasar-series mobile laser engraving machines from Mobil-Mark, using any marking process for laser engraving takes no time at all. Small batch production, individual pieces or prototypes, large, small, flat, concave, convex or spherical: the surface of any stainless steel object can be flawlessly marked with ease. Thanks to the sealing units for the laser head, which can be changed quickly and easily, any surface structure can be marked.
In order to prevent oxidation during laser engraving of stainless steel, the Quasar engraving laser can be used in a protective gas atmosphere.
Examples of use
Various marking processes on stainless steel
Coloured temper marking is created by heating up the desired area of the workpiece point by point (the resulting oxide layers create the colour effect).
Marking in a protective gas atmosphere
For improved corrosion resistance in laser engraving, particularly for alloy steel (stainless steel).
For particularly dark, high-contrast marking of the surface without removing material.
Production of a recess in the form of the marking by material removal. Discover in our reference how the aviation experts at MTU Aero Engines GmbH mark their special high-speed steel tools by laser engraving with the Mobil-Mark Laser Quasar 20.
