This paper presents the analysis of the impact of selected process parameters on the resulting laser color marking. The study was conducted for AISI 304 multipurpose stainless steel using a commercially available industrial fiber laser. It was determined how various process parameters, such as laser power, scanning speed of the laser beam, temperature of the material, location of the sample relative to the focal plane, affect the repeatability of the colors obtained. For objective assessment of color changes, an optical spectrometer and the CIE color difference parameter ΔEab * were used.
