Copper is a popular material with wide applications in several industries due to its low hardness and high conductivity. Its extensive use in several industries ties the material with identification and traceability, hence, the need for a high-quality copper marking solution.
Copper’s innate characteristics limit the compatible marking solutions suitable for copper parts and restrict the different techniques applied to the metal. For example, laser markers with high peak power and ultra short pulse width are used for laser engraving copper due to copper’s high reflectivity and low absorption rate. This article talks about the different system for marking copper parts used in any industry and several factors that can help in choosing the right marking solution.
