Ceramics are oxidic and silicate materials whose structure consists of crystals or a composition of crystalline and glassy components. They are non-metallic, polycrystalline and inorganic.
The interaction between lasers and ceramics is usually complex. Precise laser engravings or laser markings on ceramics are therefore difficult. This complexity makes it necessary to process ceramics with specially shaped laser beams. ACI Laser GmbH has developed lasers for these applications that penetrate the material with a very sharp beam profile and achieve outstanding results.
