The video below depicts to us the step by step process of how a logo can be engraved onto an Anodizing Aluminium using a CO2 laser machine.

Fun Facts:

Advantages of Anodizing Aluminium
• Anodized aluminium has quite a few advantages that regular aluminium does not possess.

• Anodized aluminium has a surface that is extremely porous and allows adhesives, lubricants, and dyes to be absorbed into the alloy.

• Anodized aluminium possesses a better natural protection against corrosion and wear, due to its rougher surface and the thick oxide layer that surrounds it.

• Anodizing prevents aluminium from cracking or peeling from regular use.

• In closing anodizing aluminium is a very clean process and most of its by-products can be recycled and used to produce other goods.
