Laser engraving is an entirely non-contact process. You will not even need to affix the object to the production platform, saving on precious time during the manufacturing process. Since the material undergoes no stress, there is little chance of secondary warping or damage. No physical cutting or engraving parts also mean a reduced requirement for regular parts replacement due to wear and tear.
Laser engravers are so accurate that they can even mark paper-thin, delicate wood sheets with accuracy and precision.
Laser engraving wood with a CO2 laser takes advantage of the extremely high energy carried by the laser, which is essentially a concentrated beam of light. The energy from the laser heats the wood material rapidly, resulting in its almost instant vaporisation.
Since the energy of the laser is confined within its beam, the material surrounding the target areas remain unaffected and will show no visible scorches or burn marks.
The ability of a wood engraving machine to handle complex contours have allowed designers to make wooden parts with highly complex geometries.
The processes of laser engraving and laser cutting are highly customisable. The laser settings can be calibrated to produce engravings of different depths and contrasts. Similarly, the intensity of the laser can be reduced when working with softwood like pine and balsa, with the higher intensity settings reserved for hardwoods like birch or walnut.
Laser cutting and engraving have made the production of furniture, inlays, and other interior decoration items much easier and faster.
THE FLEXIBLE FIT
Designed for integration into production, manufacturing and assembly lines, our N-Lase Integrated models offer high reliability, speed and flexibility in a convenient form factor. A wide range of laser power outputs on our standard system allow marking on a diverse variety of substrates, whereas the Integrated Max is suitable for more powerful hungry applications and much larger laser modules.
N-Lase Integrated systems are maintenance free and will provide you with years upon years of trouble-free operation.
BESPOKE LASER SYSTEMS
We are able to offer bespoke laser system projects to suit your unique requirements including training, service and on-going support.
Our experienced team can create custom build projects with up to 4 axis capabilities, allowing for an almost limitless marking area compared to standard systems.
