Laser engraving is actually several different processes. They are Laser Etching, Deep Laser Engraving, and Laser Ablation. Every project is different as is every material. Both of these factors play a role in determining the best laser engraving method to use. You can leave that part to us. Our team tackles these challenges daily and are proud to handle them for you.
With our AP Lazer 4836 having a Laser Engraving area of 48” Wide by 36” Long, there are few projects we can’t tackle. We also can accommodate large items, such as doors, countertops, headstones, tables, caskets, whiskey barrels and more. Our dedicated laser gives you a range of work that many other lasers just can’t accommodate.
What Is Laser Engraving?
Laser Engraving is where the laser’s beam is physically removing the surface material to expose a cavity which at eye level reveals an image. There are three types of Laser Engraving: Laser Etching, Deep Laser Engraving, and Laser Ablation.
Laser Etching is a more shallow type mark, Less than 1/1000th of an inch.
Deep Laser Engraving
Deep Laser Engraving is a deep mark, often a requirement for either regulatory reasons or for parts that will be exposed to harsh conditions either physically or environmentally, for example identification marks on parts exposed to corrosive chemicals or firearm identification. Engraving is typically greater than 1/1000th of an inch.
Laser Ablation is engraving where we remove a surface coat, like paint or anodizing, to expose either another layer underneath or the bare surface material.
