Laser engraving on chrome can produce some truly wonderful results. The crisp, clear marks that laser engraving can make on chrome make it the perfect marking solution for any time of decorative marking on chrome. Chrome trophies and awards are especially well served by laser marking.
The two photos included in this post show different types of marks on chrome. The lobster was marked us an “ablation” technique that just provided a white, frosted look on the chrome surface. The other photo is a chrome plated auto exhaust component that was marked using a “stain” mark which simply heats up the surface of the part and causes an oxide layer to form. The oxide layer is permanent, not damaging and provides excellent contrast.
