Laser engraving of stainless steel
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.
Marking by removing material to create a depression in the surface. In our case study, discover how the aviation experts at MTU Aero Engines GmbH laser-engrave their special high-speed steel tools with the Quasar 20 laser from Mobil-Mark.
