Abstract


This research describes color marking on stainless steel using various laser parameters. As a process, laser marking has been known for a long time, however, usage of this technology is rarely found for industrial needs. New fiber laser allows user to change the laser parameters in order to change color scheme, quality and visual appearance on the engraved surface.

Keywords


Laser engraving; color, thin-film effect; optimal solution
