Article: Can laser engraving machine engrave stainless steel?

Can laser engraving machine engrave stainless steel?

It can be used not only to engrave stainless steel, but also to engrave soft metals such as aluminum and copper.

We all know that stainless steel, as a common metal, has the characteristics of corrosion resistance and polishing, so it has been widely used in the industrial production process. Stainless steel is also divided into different types according to the material, use, and chemical composition. Therefore, it is necessary to know whether the selected laser engraving machine can meet our needs in stainless steel processing. Our laser engraving machine mainly supports the common stainless steel types on the market, that is, stainless steel classified by the material model.

What kind of stainless steel does the Lunyee laser engraving machine support?

Mainly include the following models:

  1. 301 stainless steel. This steel is very ductile and often used in shaped products.
  2. 304 stainless steel. With good processing performance and high toughness, it is widely used in industry, food and medical industry, and furniture decoration industry.
  3. 316 stainless steel. Due to the addition of Mo, its corrosion resistance, atmospheric corrosion resistance and high temperature strength are particularly good, and can be used under harsh conditions.

Don’t start the laser engraving operation directly just because the laser engraving machine supports engraving stainless steel. We need to make corresponding changes according to our different engraving needs. Sometimes we need to engrave deeper. At this time, we need to reduce the laser marking speed and increase the laser power. After repeated engraving several times, the finished product can meet our requirements. By the way, if you encounter the problem that the stainless steel is reflective, you can use a whiteboard pen to evenly black it and then engrave, or use special laser marking paper to engrave it.

What other materials can be engraved using a laser?

In addition to engraving stainless steel and soft metals, what else can our laser engraving machine engrave? In addition to engraving stainless steel, it can also be used in the woodworking industry, mold industry, advertising engraving, stone engraving, and handicraft engraving. For example, some common cabinet doors, screens, reliefs, plane engravings, advertising signs, two-color plates, milestones, and even crystals can be carved by laser engraving machine.


The laser engraving machine can engrave stainless steel, but it depends on the use needs, the use environment and the situation of the laser engraving equipment.
