AN ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE ALTERNATIVE TO OTHER MARKING METHODS
Zap’O Marks laser marking provides a permanent, clean alternative to chemical etching, silk screening, stamping, electro-etching, and pad printing.  Chemical etching is messy, time-consuming, and has risks to the environment if post-processing is not done properly. The benefits of using laser marking technology for metal etching over chemical etching include:

  •  No messy time-consuming setup

  •  No illegible, inconsistent, faded, or chipped marks

  •  No post-processing

LARGE VARIETY OF MATERIALS
Laser marking provides a clean, clear choice to other methods of metal etching, while also being effective on a variety of materials including:
