Whether marking a logo or a serial number, laser engraving aluminum can be an integral part of any prototyping services process.
Ever since it began to be massively used after The Great Depression, aluminum has cemented its position as one of the most widely available metals. It’s actually the second most abundant metal in the world, right after the silicon.
Relatively inexpensive, corrosion resistant, malleable, and has high thermal conductivity, aluminum is used in various applications like cans, kitchen utensils, and aircraft components. This wide range of uses has made aluminum prevail and become one of the go-to materials for many industrial applications.

How Laser Engraving Works
As the name suggests, laser engraving is a process that vaporizes the material in order to achieve a deep engraving and permanently mark your part. The laser works a bit like a chisel in this application, removing material with every pulse of the laser.
Engraving is usually preferred over etching when the pieces engraved will be exposed to wear and tear and surface treatments. The final results of the engraving are more legible and can withstand post-process treatments while maintaining their accuracy.
