Title
(EN) Method and installation for surface marking of a substrate
Abstract
(EN)

A method for surface marking a solid substrate (1), according to which, during an exposure sequence, said substrate is exposed to coherent monochromatic light (2) in order to strip said substrate over an indented surface (3), wherein the exposure conditions, including duration, are set in order to restrict said indented surface to simple abrasion designed for the bonding of a printing medium, and the exposure sequence is followed by a sequence of projecting in discrete form, during which particles (6) of said printing medium, the deposition of which subsequently defines a printed element (4), are projected in targeted fashion into the indented surface (3, 31).
