Laser etched touch panel Laser etching is a great approach to marking a variety of materials that would otherwise be difficult, if not impossible, to mark mechanically. Laser etching is ideal for near finished products needing identification, barcode, serializing, text or image backlighting or intricate decorative work.

The picture provides a perfect example of the use of laser etching.  The symbols were laser etched onto the buttons after the rest of the component was completed.
