Industrial marking

Our different techniques for industrial marking

Etilux proposes you different techniques for industrial marking to meet your requirements for signage, identification, etc

Amongst the different marking techniques, we can offer you:

So you can find solutions resitant to different attacks (such as climate, temperatures, chemicals,…) for indoor or outdoor use.

Engraving

Mechanical engraving

gravure mecanique

Mechanical engraving is a very widespread technique for marking small quantities. It consists in digging into the material (steel, copper,…) with a mill to provide intaglio or relief engraving of your logos, texts, pictograms,…


Advantages:
  • Indelible and permanent engraving
  • Economical for engraving small
    quantities
  • Possibility to colour the surface
  • Intaglio or relief effect

Surfaces
  • Metal
  • Plexiglas
  • Stainless steel
  • Copper
  • Brass



Chemical etching

gravure chimique

Chemical etching occurs by immersion in acid or alkaline baths to enable a permanent intaglio or relief marking with a depth going from 0.05 to 0.2 mm.


Advantages:
  • Permanent
  • Possibility to colour the surface
  • Intaglio or relief effect

Surfaces
  • Aluminium
  • Stainless steel
  • Brass


Laser marking

gravure laser

Laser marking is an industrial engraving technique designed to engrave different materials and objects with a laser beam.


Advantages:
  • Permanent durability and quality
  • Very high marking precision
  • Fixed or variable data marking
  • Non-contact marking
  • Marking on fixed or
    moving objects

Surfaces
  • Metal
  • Plastic
  • Stainless steel
  • Steel
  • Brass
  • Aluminium
  • Cast iron
  • Ceramic
  • Printed boards
  • etc


Anodising

gravure mecanique

Anodising is a marking technique based on the electrolysis principle (10 to 15 µ). Once the areas, that have to stay in relief, have been protected thanks to silkcreen printing, the material is chemically attacked by the electrolysis principle.


Advantages:
  • Makes the support resistant to wear,
    corrosion and heat
  • Beautiful colour rendering

Surface
  • Aluminium


Embossing

Embossing is a marking technique designed to give relief to texts & logos using a cold deformation technique.



Cutting

Cutting enables to cut materials of big or small thicknesses without deformation or burr.

Advantages:

  • Cuts different thicknesses
  • No deformation or burr
  • Complex forms can be made
  • Precision



Printed backings

Silkscreen printing

serigraphie

Silkscreen is a printing technique which can be compared to stencil method.
It consists in creating a negative of the pattern to be printed on a screen mesh and in reproducing this pattern on a flat surface. Then, a protective coating is applied on the pattern. This technique is not suitable for very precise printing


Advantages:
  • Long-term colour fastness and quality
  • Economical for high volume printing
  • Suitable for a lot of surfaces
  • Pantone & RAL colours

Surfaces
  • Metal
  • Plastic
  • Wood
  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Glass
  • Textile


Digital printing

gravure chimique

Digital printing is a technique which provides photo quality printing on a wide variety of surfaces.


Advantages:
  • Printing for indoor or outdoor use
  • Photo quality
  • Large format printing
