What is laser engraving?

Laser engraving technology is one of the laser processing technologies. Laser engraving is a marking method that uses a high-energy density laser to locally irradiate the workpiece to vaporize or change the color of the surface material and perform permanent marking. Laser engraving can produce different words, symbols and patterns.

we explained the differences between laser marking and engraving.



Laser engraving machines are used when speed and high precision are required. For example, electronic components, medical components, promo gadgets, jewelry, automotive parts, plastic buttons, hydraulics, tags and so on. The laser spot is so thin that allows us to focus precisely on microscopic surfaces.

Laser engraving works by using a focused beam of light (the spot) to mark the surface of a material. When the beam interacts with the material’s surface, it alters the material’s properties and appearance. This concentrated beam targets only a specified area, allowing the laser engraving machine to create precise, high quality, high-contrast marks that are easy to read or scan on virtually any surface. This feature makes laser engraving ideal for applications where accuracy and permanency are critical to success.

The most common laser is the fiber laser, who is effective on all the metals and the majority of plastics, considering also its MOPA versions. delivering significantly higher power to mark harder materials, such as metal.
