    Engrave in aluminum

    I had a customer who wanted to engrave .003" mark in an aluminum tube. Not sure what type of tubing it was. We have a 50W Epilog Helix laser here that we do just awards work. We don't so anything industrial but I was just wondering if this is something that can be done.

    Assuming your Helix is a C02 laser, it will have no effect whatsoever on aluminum, other than heating it up.

    Fiber laser yes, C02 laser no...
    ========================================
    ELEVEN - rotary cutter tool machines
    FOUR - CO2 lasers
    THREE - fiber lasers
    ONE - vinyl cutter

    Yes the Helix is a CO2. I thought that was what I was looking for. Thank you
