Uses of Laser Engraving
Laser engraving is typically used when a shallow mark – such as a logo, barcode, image or text – is needed to be applied to an object. The engraved mark is created by subjecting a surface area to localised heat. As part of the engraving process, the heat generated from the laser beam removes a thin layer from the surface (no more than 0.001”) by melting the area, which in turn, also expands and elevates the engraved boundary of the mark. The end result is a contrasting mark that is smooth to the touch.
The laser engraving process is used in dozens of industries including automotive, electronics, aerospace, firearms, construction equipment, medical and more.
