Hallmarking with Fiber Lasers

redENERGY G4 20W RM-Z

Hallmarks are a series of official marks struck on items of precious metal and can be found on all pieces of gold, silver and platinum jewellery. Traditionally hallmarks were struck with steel punches but today they are more commonly made by Laser marking and engraving.

The Laser is especially useful in marking delicate items or hollowware which would be damaged or distorted by the punching process. These marks can either be produced in 2D generating simple patterns while with 3D marking engraved marks can be made that more closely simulate traditional punched marks.
