Laser engraving uses the same principles as laser cutting however a number of parameters are dramatically changed. Using a lower powered beam allows for the partial melting and ablation of the materials surface to achieve the desired engraving feature.
At The Laser Company, utilising both Fiber and CO2 laser systems, we can laser engrave a large number of materials, ranging from stainless steel to plywood.
The CO2 laser system can engrave on almost all materials, including metals with the addition of laser marking compounds. Typical engraving materials includes Acrylic/PMMA, Anodised Aluminium, Melamine Composite, Rubber and many others.
Laser engraving is commonly used for product traceability, identification, c
and branding. However, laser engraving has a number of engineering applications, ranging from surface modification to ablating channels in material.
