Marking for the Aerospace
& Defense Industry

Permanent, durable markings are of the utmost importance when it comes to traceability in the aerospace industry. Telesis laser marking and dot peen equipment can mark on aerospace products and commercial aircraft manufacturers. Our laser engraving systems for the aerospace industry set the standard for quality and performance.

Dot Peen Markers and Lasers for Military Aircraft Manufacturers
& Aviation Parts Suppliers

In a high-heat environment like that of a plane engine, temporary markings just won’t work. You can’t rely on traditional marking methods like inkjet, labeling, and RFID. What’s a valuable solution that works long-term on jets, defense aircraft, satellite, rocket engines, and more? Clear, permanent marks made by lasers.

The metals and other materials that aerospace engineering companies and airplane manufacturing companies use can stand forces and environments that other modes of transportation don’t have to withstand. No other marking system offers the clarity and dependability that a laser marker machine offers. Whether your aircraft is designed with titanium, carbide, aluminum, plastics, platinum ceramics, or another material, Telesis lasers can mark on it and mark fast.

The Jet Age is over. Let us welcome you to the Laser Age.

Telesis stands ready to help aerospace-component manufacturers as the industry-wide shift to laser marking accelerates. Our engineers are expert in connecting our laser systems to your robotic system, camera systems, and your entire supply-chain apparatus. Additionally, Telesis complies with AS478-3 and MIL-STD-130 standards and meets UID regulations with the use of 2D code matrix.

The Benefits of Laser Engraving in Aerospace

Aerospace part marking systems have many advantages, including:


  • Operational efficiency: The laser engraving process is faster and more efficient than other etching operations, marking aerospace components within seconds.
  • High-quality markings: Aerospace part marking machines create permanent, precise and easily repeatable markings, minimizing the risk of errors and inconsistencies. Laser engraving also produces high-contrast markings for optimal visibility.
  • Application versatility: You can use laser engraving to mark a comprehensive range of identifying characteristics, such as barcodes and serial numbers, without size or shape limitations.
  • Durability: Laser-marked parts are highly resistant to the harsh environments, extreme temperatures and corrosive chemicals of the aerospace industry.
  • Eco-friendliness: The aerospace part marking process does not generate waste products or harmful materials.
  • Traceability: Laser marking machines promote manufacturing traceability by enabling organizations to attach unique identifiers to their products. As a result, manufacturers can better track and trace product data and remain compliant with federal regulations.


Materials Used in Aerospace

You can use laser engraving systems to mark a wide assortment of materials for the aerospace industry:


  • Stainless steel: This wear-resistant metal is often used for structural components and machined parts.
  • Brass: Brass is durable, corrosion-resistant and easy to form, making it suitable for aerospace fasteners, nuts, bolts and casings.
  • Titanium: This lightweight yet sturdy metal can endure extreme temperatures, making it a common choice for aircraft frames and engines.
  • Silver: Silver is ideal for high-performance bearings due to its function as a lubricant in extreme conditions.
  • Plastic: Plastic in the aerospace industry is used for everything from engine caps to fuel tank covers to interior seats.
  • Aluminum: Aluminum has similar features to titanium but is less expensive. It is often used for airplane parts and components.
  • Carbide: Due to its hard synthetic construction, tungsten carbide use is common in engine components.
  • Platinum: Platinum’s durable, corrosion-resistant build makes it useful for heat exchangers, engine components, turbines and fuel nozzles.
  • Coated materials: Some aerospace metals are specially coated to prevent corrosion and oxidation.

Laser Recommendations:


The TMP3200 is a simple, yet robust belt-driven, dual-rail system that uses an X/Y platform and yields high-quality characters. The rugged design means a long-lasting, low maintenance operation while having the ability to mark a wide range of materials from soft plastics to hardened steel (rc60). The floating pin technology accommodates surface irregularities up to 0.25 in (6mm) easily and the generously sized marking window sets this dot peen marker apart from the rest.


Great for cylindrical marking where a rotary device can add efficiency and practicality. The TMP6100 is the most versatile PINSTAMP® marker, with durable components that can withstand tough manufacturing environments. Not only can it serve a wide range of marking applications, but it integrates seamlessly into factory automation networks.
