Permanent marking is a significant thing for establishing any brand or business. There are popular technologies through which the marking is presently done and that includes inkjets, electrochemical etching, dot peen and laser marking. You have to make a choice of the technology you would pick to create your markings. Each of the technologies has its own area of advantages and limitations. The companies who provide you with the marking service have to consider some fundamental factors when deciding which technology to use. The types of material, surface finish, roughness and dimension, functionalities, marking quality, mark serialization and coating thickness decide which method would be most effective for that particular purpose.

Direct marking technology including laser engraving is popular in OKC and other cities now. The reason behind this is the durability. Stickers do not permit long term traceability. Engraving is permanent and is done in a way that most people can read.


There are several benefits of laser engraving technology and here are some of those for you:

  • It is a non-contact process that allows sensitive materials to be marked, skipping the mechanical risk including stresses on the material.

  • There is a wide range of materials available that the technology can be used on.

  • It is a permanent finish without degrading the quality of the material.

  • It is compliant with the rules and regulations of the food and health industry.

  • It is less time-consuming.

  • It is much more prominent.

There are also other technologies in the engraving industry but for the most part, laser engraving is popular in OKC and other parts of America.

  1. Inkjet marking is also a non-contact process that uses the force of ink to mark the surface. Two main processes are followed here; continuous inkjet and drop on demand inkjet. Over time, this marking can wear off, this being the considerable pitfall of it.

  2. Electrochemical etching is another type of engraving process that is known as oxide black surface effect. It can be long-lasting but has an ill effect on the material. Electrochemical and the process electrode can change the material.
