Precision, artistic, and permanent marking on many different surfaces. Laser Engraving will never replace traditional scroll work from an artisan. Yet laser marking adds the ability to rapidly make custom designs.  Adding pulse control from MOPA Fiber Lasers allows for variable depths, remelts, textures, and contrasts.   AR-15 Receivers are marked with a the “211” Division logo of the SJ Police. The same logo was etched onto a wood stock for a gift for the retiring Lieutenant as well as the M1911 belonging to the Desk Sergeant. And note the Cross on the Glock21 slide. Zoom in on the photo and note that  the engraving is both  deep and smooth.  This is due to the versatility of MOPA wave forms which can create a clean surface that does not attract rust.  Laser Mark’s Company has all the tools!

Gold Marking on Electronic Packaging

Finally a Gold marking process that does not remove the plating!  Electronic devices are plated with 50 micro inches of Gold over 200 micro inches of Nickel.  All previous attempts at laser marking vaporized both Gold and Nickel exposing the base metal Kovar which corrodes.  The Laser Mark’s Company “Light Touch” process just kisses the top layer at the point of coupling and then stops reaction.  This is why it is critical to define that transition point between reflection and laser coupling.   The process is made possible using the magic of Wave Forms on the MOPA fiber lasers.   The pulse width is shortened, and the power density is increased such that only the top surface of the gold is ablated.  This process is perfect for military, aerospace, and other devices destined for harsh environments.  Process is also possible with the new SPI EP-S-J series of lasers

Laser Mark’s Company Retires last Flashlamp YAG

Yes, the old Lee lasers have been put out to pasture.  (Actually they were sold off to a research institute at a university).   All our 1064nm lasers are now solid state.  This means no more variability in the quality of the mark as the lamps degrade over time.   All Laser Mark’s Company machines are now maintenance free.  That eliminates down time and makes pulse to pulse stability issues a thing of the past.   All laser pulses now are clones of each other.   We are the only job shop in Silicon Valley to be fully solid state in 1064nm and our CO2 system is sealed as well.   Come to Laser Mark’s Company for reliability and quick turn production.

New HOT/Cold Dual Mirror Beam Splitter

This custom Laser Mark’s unit is designed to solve the flaws of current splitters on the market.   The Hot mirror is 99%+ reflective, and it can be adjusted for perfect centering and then locked into place.   That ability to adjust and then solidly lock is non-trivial as once the splitter is attached one must be certain the beam is straight down the bore.  It must not be allowed to move once set.  The Cold mirror blocks an addition 97% of the 1% of  IR going to the camera.  Its target can be moved to match the cross hairs on the video display.  This is where flexibility is required. Better than 2micron per pixel of resolution can be achieved in the center of the field  with the FT100 lens.

Price  $2995 for splitter and mounts  with camera for an optional $1200.

New Research Laser Goes Online at UCSD

Custom designed by Laser Mark’s Company, this system utilizes a single mode Extended Pulse Control MOPA fiber laser.  It can be configured to mark spot sizes from less than 10 microns on  small fields, and  <35 micron spots over 178mm square fields.  The precision X-Y and Z axis have sub-micron repeatability over 250mm of travel.  The Laser Mark’s designed video beam splitter provides the targeting for precision alignment.  The screen in the photo displays crosshairs engraved by the laser itself.  The system will be used by post graduate students to develop micro fluidic heat sinks, and nano particle ablative transfer along with dozens of other advanced research projects.
