The Best Laser Engraving Tips

Laser engraving got it’s start in the early sixties when scientists discovered they could create a light source, focus it’s energy and yet have a tool powerful enough to affect a variety of materials. If you’ve heard the term laser etching it’s basically just another name for laser engraving. In today’s engraving industry, CO2 lasers, which are named for the gasses used to create the light source, are the tools of choice.

Like many inventions of modern times, lasers came out of a laboratory. They ca be used to engrave/mark almost all materials. Sometimes laser marking is referred to as laser etching however unlike conventional etching it needs no masks or chemicals.

Marking is the most favoured method when one wants permanency or aesthetics. Etching is the process of marking material without cutting all the way through using reduced power. A laser works quite well for cutting acrylic (Plexiglas), PETG, thin polycarbonates (Mylar), styrene expanded PVC (Sintra), wood, paper and fabric. Engraving of graphite is a very clean operation.

And when used to mark or etch glass and quartz replace traditional methods – these include sand blasting, ink pad printing, and etching. They can also provide excellent results for marking glass and provide great reductions in operating costs and cost of supplies.
