The Advantages of Laser Engraving
There are several types of laser that can be used for the laser engraving process, and so in this article. We are simply going to list the general advantages of this process.
For more detailed information on fiber lasers specifically, the type that we manufacture, please head to the bottom of the page.
One of the biggest benefits of laser engraving is that it’s a non-contact process. This means that the laser beam isn’t physically touching the material that it is being applied to. Instead relying on heat to achieve the desired results.
This is a big benefit over more traditional methods, as it’s removed the abrasion damage that was historically often being left on materials.
Instead, only the portion that laser is targeting will be vaporised, and the surrounding area is left untouched. Additionally, it reduces costs as there are no perishable parts to wear out and therefore no machine down time and associated productivity losses to deal with.
Unlike laser marking, a process which engraving is similar to, the aim here is to remove a portion of the material being worked with. As laser systems, and fiber lasers in particular, offer so much control, a range of depths can be achieved to suit the user.
To demonstrate this, we laser engraved stainless steel to two separate depths. Here, we did it to a depth of 2mm, and here to a depth of 1.5mm.
It also can be utilised on a number of materials.
It’s highly efficient and a focus on quality.
It’s environmentally-friendly and a safe process.
It is used in many industries for many applications.
