Fast, High-Contrast Anodized Aluminum Data Plate Marking with Fiber Lasers

Fast, high-contrast data plate marking

The best tool for creating crisp, high-contrast anodized aluminum data plates is a fiber laser marking system. In this demo, a 20-watt, 163 lens Dapra laser marker makes quick work of anodized plates, using a standard hatch pattern to fully remove the anodized coating and create an easy-to-read mark in less than 10 seconds.

  • Mark nameplates, asset and ID tags, military tags, aerospace plates, dog tags and much more
  • Automatically mark date codes, serial numbers, logos, graphics, 2D Data Matrix, UID, UDI, QR and barcodes, plus any alphanumeric characters with our easy-to-use software
  • Ask us about custom workstations and automated tag feeding systems

From power and lens options to desktop workstations and integrated setups, Dapra will help you select the optimal laser system configuration for your specific application material, mark type and budget. Modern fiber lasers are rated for 100,000 hours of life, and our industrial-grade solutions feature American-made laser sources that are built to last for years to come.

What else can you do with a fiber laser marker?

Deep engraving metal with a fiber laser marker

Deep Engraving

Deep engrave in excess of .004” deep, whether you are working with hardened or stainless steel, anodized aluminum, copper, or precious metals.

Laser annealing for smooth, high-contrast heat marks

High-Contrast Annealing

Create high-contrast annealed/heat marks with no metal surface disruption. Mark all grades of stainless steel, Inconel and titanium – without any depth to the mark.

Laser annealing for smooth, high-contrast heat marks

Raised Marking

Create "raised" marks by removing the material around the text, code or graphic, rather than engraving the mark into the part.
