Laser engraving: The Origins

Laser Engraving
April 4, 2014

Laser engraving

Laser, or Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, originates from Albert Einstein’s theory of radiation published in 1916. However, we had to wait until the 1950’s to see science progress lead to what would become the revolutionary tool we know today. As of the 1960’s, scientist found out they could focus the energy of a light source to create a tool that could mark or engrave all kinds of material.

What is laser engraving?

Laser marking or etching or engraving is used to create graphics, logos, characters, numbers or barcodes on all kinds of material. No tool or substance is to touch the surface to be marked: a laser light is used instead, which, depending on the settings of the machine, will either produce a deep mark or a contrasting mark.

A laser marking is clear, vibrant, and easy to read and won’t fade or wear out over time.

Why choose laser engraving?

Among the services we offer, laser engraving of any of our products is available for you to customize with your company name or logo. This technique has many advantages compared to traditional engraving methods. Since no tool that physically touches the surface, no bit wear or replacement is involved, this means precision work that can go in details, and less expenses incurred by machine maintenance.

It can be used on pretty much any kind of material, big or small items, and is highly versatile with its thousand applications.

It is clean, with no dust or residue due to mechanical friction; no harsh chemicals are required or no high temperatures. Uneven surfaces are no longer a problem since the beam of light will go in the direction the computer tells it to go. It is easy to control and focus, so even engravings to be performed on rugged surfaces that would be harder to achieve with traditional tools can be completed rapidly with precision.

Personalize: Your own brand

Laser engraving has been booming over the last decade. It is very versatile; it allows any writing or design engraved on pretty much anything. An engraving won’t fade like ink or peel off like a sticker.
