Need help with a method to engrave some information which includes some color on a circular aluminium shaft of about .6" dia. The shaft also has a aluminium oxide coating. Currently we are gluing a decal with the information on the shaft but there are times when the glue wears off. I looked into laser engraving but not sure if we can apply color afterwards as it may wear off. Please suggest some ideas.
