Also, to choose the right logo marking method, make sure the material is compatible with it Below are the different methods you can use:

Laser Marking Process

laser marking process

Laser marking is a permanent logo marking method used for several materials such as stainless steel, wood, and leather. It involves using a laser marking machine to blast a laser beam on the surface of a product or material to change its appearance. Laser marking is a non-contact process; therefore, the material will not suffer from mechanical stress. There are three types of laser marking processes that you can use in logo marking:

· Laser Engraving

Laser engraving involves using a beam produced by a laser marking machine to remove a material’s surface and reveal an image observable at eye level. The laser marking machine generates heat which makes the material vaporize, resulting in marking.

Laser engraving is faster than others as the material vaporizes with each pulse. It is applicable in logo marking materials such as wood, metal, leather, and plastic, which the engraving moiety will not destroy.

· Laser Etching

Laser etching occurs when heat from the beam makes the surface material melt due to high heat. Unlike laser engraving, laser etching has a lesser depth of engraving, and the melted material happens to expand, causing a raised mark.

Laser etching is applicable in logo marking materials such as metal, ceramics, and polymers.

· Laser Annealing

Laser annealing is a non-degradative laser marking process that involves using a laser machine to heat and change the material’s color. The color impacted on the material by the process depends on the material and the laser beam temperature. However, standard colors include yellow, red, and green. Laser annealing is ideal and widely applicable in logo marking due to the smooth surface of the material is employed after marking.

There are many laser marking machines you can use. However, one of the most powerful is the Fl10 and Fl20 Fiber Laser Engraving Machine. It is ideal for logo marking as it does not ruin the structure of the engraved material. It can mark many materials such as rubber, ceramics, coated metal, metals, and plastics.

Dot Peen Marking Process

The dot peening process involves using a pin/stylus to mark a material surface. A pneumatic process or electricity operates the pin/stylus, and it creates tiny dots that work in harmony to create the required image. Dot peen marking is permanent, and this makes it a popular choice in logo marking certain materials. However, it is only ideal for materials that can withstand the mechanical stress it incorporates. For an easy dot peen marking process, you can use dot peen markers such as the HS-DE01/HS-DE03



Scribing is another marking process that is ideal for logo marking. It is majorly confused with the dot peening marking process. However, both are different, with dot peening basing its principle on vibration and scribing on materials penetration.

Scribing involves using a stylus made up of a hard substance such as a diamond top to penetrate the marking material. Scribing is a continuous process and ideal for dealing with different hard materials in many forms. For example, it can work with flat, inclined, concave, convex, and round surfaces. Unlike dot peening, scribing does not lead to noise generated during use. Consequently, you can use it in marking hollow parts.

Inkjet Marking Process

Inkjet printing is a non-contact marking entailing varieties of shapes and substrates. It is a form of digital printing equipped to mark irregular and difficult surfaces. For example, it can mark small areas, concave surfaces, or convex surfaces through the non-contact printheads built into inkjet printers. The inkjet marking process becomes easier by using a handheld inkjet printer as it is mobile and can mark different materials so far they are conductive.
