Laser engraving stainless steel is one of the most popular processing modes in the stainless steel processing industry. Linxuan provides custom solution for laser engraving stainless steel and manufactures industrial stainless steel laser engraving machine with long-term after-sales service.
Stainless steel is a common material used in industrial production processes. Stainless steel products can be found everywhere in life. Traditional marking methods such as gluing and ink stamping can easily be damaged or cause other problems. The laser engraving technology can achieve fully automatic marking operations on stainless steel. Laser marking stainless steel patterns, text can be designed at will, the operation is simple, and the laser engraving machine can also produce color effects. Moreover, the marking speed is fast, the efficiency is high, the precision is high, and the marking effect is clear.
For more detailed and complex needs, customized laser marking stainless steel solutions can be obtained, using the stainless steel laser engraving machine together with various auxiliary accessories (including those suitable for batch processing, production lines, etc.) to accomplish excellent engraving and marking results.
Laser Engraving Stainless Steel Advantages
Increased Production Efficiency
The speed of laser engraving stainless steel is fast, providing high-quality and economical processing.
Laser marking of stainless steel works well on parts and products at the high speeds required for industrial production. Engraving speeds of up to 900 marks per minute are possible. Laser markers can also increase productivity by directing a beam of light to mark objects as they move along the production line.
Laser marking stainless steel technology creates permanent codes to ensure identification throughout the life of the product. Laser coding is the only marking technology that can successfully provide permanent identification on stainless steel. Codes marked using inkjet coding and thermal transfer coding technologies can be easily removed.
Permanence is becoming increasingly important as manufacturers need to be able to track parts and products.
Fiber Laser Marking System
Fiber laser marker is the system of choice for important codes on stainless steel surfaces. This system can spray codes and other data directly onto stainless steel parts and stainless steel sheets. Codes can include numeric text, alphanumeric text, 2D codes, or conventional barcodes.
Compared to gas laser coders of equivalent power, fiber laser coders are compact and their peak power and nanosecond pulses produce excellent marking results with cleaner cut edges and faster speeds.
Mopa Lasers Enable Colour Marking on Stainless Steel
Under the effect of the heat source generated by the high-frequency Mopa laser beam, the stainless steel material forms colored oxides on the surface or forms a colorless and transparent oxide film, which takes on various colors due to the thin film interference effect of light.
Industries of Application
Laser can process permanent logos, text, QR codes, photos, patterns, serial numbers, symbols, names, anti-counterfeiting codes, numbers, etc. on stainless steel products.
The importance of stainless steel laser coding has increased in industries where the authentication and traceability of individual parts are becoming increasingly important, such as the aerospace, automotive, and medical device industries.
Stainless steel laser marking machine technology is used in industries such as hardware products, tool accessories, mobile phone communication, precision instruments, glasses and clocks, jewelry, and ornaments.
Laser Engraving Stainless Steel Project Ideas
Stainless Steel Vacuum Cup
For cylindrical stainless steel vacuum cup, laser engraving is not limited by the color or size of the cup surface.
Whether you want to print a brand LOGO, text, or a pattern composed of fine lines on the thermos cup, it can be done with a fiber laser engraving machine. You can also engrave on the lid or the tea strainer as required.
The standard engraving range of a fiber laser engraver is generally 100 mm x 100 mm. For thermos cup, this engraving range can fully meet the requirements. Therefore, laser engraving is very popular in the lettering processing industry of thermos cup, not only can save time and labor cost, but also greatly improve the work efficiency.
And now many young people like to customize the lettering on the thermos cup, which is used to give certain important objects. For example, as a Teacher’s Day gift, a Valentine’s Day small gift, or as a heart-warming gift for family members in winter.
It is a very good choice to mark the exclusive name and words on the vacuum cup with a laser engraving machine, and send it to family members, friends and elders.
Stainless steel knives engraving
Stainless steel knives are one of the most common tools we use in our daily lives, such as kitchen knives, fruit knives, nail clippers and various types of scissors. Engraving on stainless steel knives is a necessary process.
A good knife is inseparable from good engraving. Knives are naturally tough as steel, and the art of laser engraving is the icing on the cake for steel.
If the traditional engraving method with the high cost and slow speed is adopted, it is impossible to reduce the cost further. It only takes a few seconds to process a stainless steel knife with a fiber laser engraving machine, and the overall cost is very low, which is conducive to product pricing, and the lower the price of homogeneous products, the more consumers will become. Business development is also better.
The pattern engraved by the laser on the knife mold is durable, resistant to high temperatures and chemical substances. The long-lasting and anti-counterfeiting characteristics of the marks provide convenience for the production management of manufacturers and maintain the shopping experience of consumers.
The general marking method cannot keep the photo on the stainless steel material for a long time. The line width of the laser engraving machine can be as small as 0.04mm, and it can engrave large-area pictures on stainless steel products. The lines are exquisite and delicate, the mark is clear, and there are no consumables pollute.
Many important parts of automobiles use laser engraving machines in the process of production and processing. The stainless steel laser engraving machine can quickly engrave any special-shaped surface without touching the surface of the object during processing, and the workpiece will not deform and generate internal stress, without any damage. This is undoubtedly a good logo processing solution for the car industry that pursues efficiency and quality.
The marking of automotive stainless steel parts mainly includes QR codes, bar codes, clear codes, production dates, serial numbers, logos, patterns, certification marks, warning marks and other information.
The long-term marking method of laser engraving machine for mobile phones can improve the anti-counterfeiting ability and increase the added value, making the product look higher-grade and have a more brand sense.
Moreover, with the laser engraving technology used to engrave on the stainless steel middle frame or shell of the mobile phone, the marking is clear and beautiful, and will not be erased, and will not damage the exquisiteness of the mobile phone.
The engraving of various stainless steel parts of mobile phones requires the simultaneous use of multiple laser processing methods, including UV laser, fiber laser, etc.
Bracelets and Rings
After the laser engraving machine was introduced into the jewelry industry, consumers widely welcomed it for its exquisite engraving and convenience.
The high-precision features of laser engraving machines are ideal for achieving wear-resistant, permanent markings on the surface of delicate rings, bracelets, necklaces and other jewelry made of stainless steel.
In today’s jewelry market, personalized engravings are favored by customers, such as engraving words with special meaning, blessings and personalized patterns on jewelry.
