Laser engraving was once thought of as a process used only by large companies to mark parts and tools, or trophy shops for the customization of awards and recognition products.
But, today, with many small businesses popping up and the movement of manufacturers increasing, laser engraving has become a profitable industry that only needs a small investment to become part of it.
Laser engrave virtually any design onto the board, including filigree motifs or complex designs. Laser engravers are especially suitable for processing a wide variety of materials, regardless of whether it is serial or one-piece manufacturing. Custom stencils create signs quickly and efficiently for indoor and outdoor use such as individualized dog tag engraving.
We make laser engraving on metal for different types of uses, whether for advertising, plates, industrial parts or labels.
This type of engraving is carried out by generating a very powerful laser beam that allows, thanks to a highly accurate mirror system, to act against the part and affect the material.
In the area affected by lightning, a high density is achieved, which causes the deformation of the material. In this way, the laser creates different layers by the erosion of the material and in this way the required reliefs and drawings are obtained, achieving high-quality laser engraving.
Positive points of Laser Engraving:
Laser engraving is a rare or unconventional process that facilitates the machining of small and complex parts. One of the advantages of this type of engraving is the possibility of working almost all types of materials regardless of their hardness, from steels, ceramics to carbide, silicon, etc. In addition, since this process occurs thanks to an energy source that affects the surface of the material, there is no wear on the tool.
Another of the positive points of laser industrial engraving technology is that it allows machining of reduced-size figures and parts, which facilitates the creation of geometric shapes that would be difficult to obtain by conventional methods.
Thanks to this type of engraving and London electric branding iron, the material is better used and allows more flexibility and automation since it does not require tool changes, only modifications in the computer program. Furthermore, the cutting walls are perpendicular to the part and parallel to each other, so that cuts can be made in any direction.
Materials suitable for engraving:
– Anodized aluminum
– Stainless steel
For example, Hamilton-rand.co.uk relies on its wood branding iron technology to provide a great definition in its laser engravers, giving the user infinite possibilities to create unique products and differentiate themselves in a rapidly growing market.
