Laser Engraving is the removal of material from the top surface of an object down to a specified depth using laser beams. Through this process, the laser literally vaporizes the material, creating a permanent mark. This adds depth and texture to the material and gives it a layered look. Using different intensities of beams, the depth of the engraving can be varied. You can even cut through the material entirely to create a unique edge or die cut look.
This application makes anything possible! Laser engraving takes a normal object and personalizes it however you want. Add your company logo or inscribe a phase across a variety of materials including wood, metal, acrylic, plastic, leather, and more. Due to its versatility, Laser Engraving is a great option for any industry. Laser Engraving has an advantage over more traditional printing methods because it does not use inks, tool bits, or blades, which can wear out the engraving surface. Because these components are not part of the Laser Engraving process, there are no parts that need to be replaced.
This allows for a superior level of consistency and quality for each item that is worked on. Laser Engraving is resistant to weathering making it suitable for objects that undergo a lot of wear and tear.
