Material ablation

Laser marking on lacquer will remove the lacquer from the workpiece. Depending on the composition and colour, it is possible to produce extremely high-quality markings rich in contrast.  A typical practical example is the day-and-night design.

The advantages of material ablation are found in applications where it is not possible to mark the actual raw material using a laser.  By clever choice of the lacquer colour, very beautiful and high-contrast markings are often possible.

The advantages of material ablation are, in particular, the robustness against mechanical stress as well as heat influences and liquids such as water and oils.

The correct laser technology for the user is basically oriented to the thickness of the lacquer coat applied and the machining time available. The laser technology best suited for your application can be determined in one of the ACI laboratories by a free-of-charge test.
