Custom laser engraving is an excellent way to make your mark on a product and impress customers. Laser engraving is extremely versatile and can be used on almost any material, including wood, ceramics, organic materials, and precious metals. It allows the user precise, computer-based control and is perfect for custom engraving.
Unlike traditional engraving techniques, laser engraving requires no direct contact between the engraving tool and the work surface. Because there is no direct contact with components, the engraving equipment is spared a great deal of wear and tear. The engraving itself is made through melt displacement and evaporation.

A highly focused beam delivers energy to the workpiece at a pre-determined frequency. The beam interacts with the work surface, creating a colorless recess where the material is removed. Oxides created by the melting of some base materials react with oxygen and can produce color variations. These uniform variations make the lettering appear clearly against the base material. The material is removed in layers down to the desired, constant depth.
The system is controlled via computer to follow a pre-programmed path, reducing human error and making it possible to complete large custom engraving projects with increased speed and accuracy.
