The N-Lase laser engravers can be used on most metals, coated metals, plastic, glass and organic surfaces. Most importantly, N-Lase systems excel in several ways:
Depending on the depth of the engraving and material used, the N-Lase can engrave text, barcodes and images in seconds! Of course, if a more complex or greater depth is needed for your design, the engraving process will take longer. However, for most manufacturing applications, the laser beam can complete the engraving in moments.
The N-Lase allows you to engrave the same design dozens, hundreds or even thousands of times, yet still give you the same consistent result every time. In fact, part of the reason why laser engraving technology is so popular these days is much to do with its consistent production capabilities.
The engraving process can be automated with the N-Lase machines. Therefore, once you created a design and selected the right parameters for the job, the actual engraving process can be done without the need for technical expertise. Most manufacturing houses will use a jig or a production line method to engrave their products. Thereby reducing the levels of defects and errors in production.
Laser engraving is a non-contact technology. It means that there is no actual contact between the machine and the object during the engraving process. The machine simply fires a laser beam from a short distance away, which creates the engraved design on the surface of the object.
For this reason, the medical industry has become a heavy user of laser engraving machines in recent years. Medical tools and machines, such as surgical tools, require stringent labelling practices, which can be achieved with a laser, yet still, maintain a sterile environment.
Small and intricate designs
The pulse of the laser beam is so thin that it can create unbelievably complex designs in the smallest of spaces.
Manufacturing companies typically use a small-sized data matrix code to add a large number of information about a product for traceability purposes.
Additionally, jewelry items, such as rings and bracelets, often require an intricate design to be engraved onto the surface of the item. Laser engraving machines are perfect for such applications.
