As well as high quality logos, metal etching is also capable of marking simple text messages, part numbers, dates, serial numbers and other required information, directly onto the product - whether the surface is round or flat. The marking process takes a matter of seconds.
The Etching Technique
Metal etching works by passing a controlled low-voltage electric current through a pre-printed stencil. The current is transferred through the gaps in the stencil using a harmless electrolyte fluid and etches away a thin layer of the surface material leaving a dark contrasting finish on the metal.
The mark is usually generated within 2-3 seconds - depending on the material and the size or composition of the mark.
