Rache Corporation’s precision laser marking service provides permanent identification, branding, or traceability for virtually any metal, plastic or synthetic surface.

Our laser marking system was developed by our in-house engineers and can engrave any text, bar code, or graphic into a metal, plastic or synthetic surface. Perfect for the needs of the aerospace/space, military, defense, medical device, automotive, and commercial industries, when it is critical for components to retain their identification or traceability information.

When you need detailed marking or if traceability is essential…

Our laser engraving is the reliable process you need.

Permanent Markings On Any Metal, plastic or synthetic Surface

When you need to mark challenging materials it’s a tough job, but laser etching makes it easy!


  • Can etch any metal, plastic or synthetic surface—permanently
  • Quality and durability you can count on
  • Resulting in clean, sharp lines and characters
  • Precision and high quality results
  • No inks, dyes or chemicals are used in these processes

Smaller Tolerances Than Any Other Method

Small characters and barcodes can be impossible to get right with chemical etching—laser engraving solves those challenges.  


  • Letter and number characters as small as .008” 
  • Precise bar codes and graphics—no mask needed!
  • List of materials that qualify for laser engraving

A Reliable And Repeatable Process

Laser engraving services have another benefit—no chemicals are used in the process, no toxic chemicals to harm the environment.


  • Deeper, sharper markings
  • No mask or chemicals required
  • Simply a better result, every time
  • Clear and precise marking and graphics

Why work with Rache Corporation?

Because we know it’s the details that truly matter.

quotation marks 1a

“Machining easily read serial numbers on our dental equipment parts is difficult because they are anodized black, but Rache had no problem achieving our design specifications. We work with a myriad of production dates from multiple fabrication shops. Once the parts hit our dock, I call Rache for a turn-around date, they have always hit the mark. When we find ourselves in a crunch situation, Rache always helps out with at least partial delivery in 24 hours.”

Laser Marking Project For The Mars Pathfinder!

Laser Marking of Mars Pathfinder Components

Laser Marking of Mars Pathfinder Components 1
For this project we were given the opportunity to work with NASA and JPL to provide laser marking on the gearboxes, camera pointing system, and airbag retraction actuator for the Mars Pathfinder. In all, we marked 12 different components comprised of stainless steel and titanium.

The parts averaged 2″ diameter with marking tolerances of ±.005″—that’s tiny! All markings were made in compliance with MIL STD 130.
