Metal Marking

ExactBuilt offers high resolution indelible marking on metal using a variety of lasers and processes. We offer a host of additive, subtractive, material property change, and color printing solutions to achieve different finishes where high contrast, tone-on-tone, or light refracting graphics are all possible. The results are highly resistant to chemicals, heat, and abrasion helping you meet the most demanding environmental specifications. MIL-STD-130 specifications for mark permanency are easily met on nearly any shape and texture. Unique identification (UID), logos, 2D barcodes (QR codes), and human readable information can be applied even at very small scale. Our focus is on all non sheet metal cutting applications.

Compounds are "fired" on to the surface with laser leaving a high contrast mark a few ten thousands of an inch thick.
Paint or coating is ablated from the surface leaving the underlying material exposed.
Property change:
Anodized surfaces can be bleached and steel can be annealed leaving permanent contrasting marks.
Full color digital printing using UV curable inks provide chemical and abrasion resistant graphics on almost any surface.
