    What is the laser engraving process?

    Metal engraving using a Laser is carried out using a strong laser with a targeted beam (called the focal point), the laser's intense heat melts the target material in a highly controlled manner. The heat is so great that some of the waste material actually evaporates during the engraving process. Other waste material is forced out from the engraved grooves by the vapour pressure which is then removed when the surface is cleaned.

    Unlike laser cutting techniques, the machine is made to engrave text or designs into a material's surface rather than cut through it completely.

    What is the difference between laser etching and engraving?

    The main difference between laser etching and engraving is the depth to which each process can achieve. Laser etching can go to a depth of 0.08mm whilst laser engraving can go significantly deeper, to depths of 0.5mm. There are also specialised deep laser engraving machines that are capable of creating grooves more than 0.5mm deep.

    Will laser engraving wear off?

    How long a laser engraving lasts is dependant on the material that has been engraved and what friction is applied to it. In a case when an engraved metal object is being used by hand then the engraving should last forever. However, if the metal is coming into contact with another material of similar hardness, or polished over many years, then it may eventually wear down.

    How deep can you laser engrave?

    Standard Laser Engraving can be done in a range up to a depth of 0.075 to 0.5mm. There are also Deep Laser Engraving tools that are capable of engraving deeper than 0.5mm
