Our goal is to deliver the highest quality laser engraving or your product(s). Our team will work closely with you, from planning and approval to execution and delivery, to ensure we meet your expectations.

The process of engraving varies by product material type; this list reflects just a portion of applications of our lasers.

CERAMIC & GLASS

  • Lasers with high peak pulse power are most effective
  • One of the most difficult materials to cut
  • Brittle nature of material and low thermal expansion presents a challenge to mechanical cutting
  • Typically uses scribing and cleaving method – a small perforated line of holes along a scribed line

FILMS

  • Thin films used in many packaging processes require drilling (hole cutting) and perforating to facilitate opening or promote breathability
  • Film is commonly used for marking and coding; Material ablation is a physical process that involves removing material completely from the top to the bottom surface or partially from the top of the material down to a specified depth

Leather

  • Lasers allow for intricate design cutting for leather wearables and decorative appliques
  • Lasers offer the advantage of cutting and marking in the same process, saving significant time and resources by combining these process steps

PAPER, PAPERBOARD and CARDBOARD

  • Cutting is by thermo-chemical degradation
  • No contact to target material, so no pressure or force required for more delicate materials
  • No edge charring and minimal discoloration

PLASTICS

  • Most types of plastics can be cut with a laser
  • Acrylics cut best and result in flame-polished edges, meaning there are no extra steps to finish
  • High peak pulse power, fast rise/fall times, and excellent beam quality deliver clean, tight holes

RUBBER

  • Rubber is an excellent absorber of CO2 radiation; the breakdown occurs at low energy levels and cut speed is rapid – instantaneous absorption of the beam’s energy causes the rubber to simply vaporize into a gas

TEXTILES

  • Uses high-speed laser processing
  • Common thermoplastic polymer textiles like polyester and nylon cut very well with a laser; the cutting process seals fabric edges, leaving no frayed fibers and reducing the need for additional processing steps

Wood

  • Cutting is by thermo-chemical degradation
  • Dry, lightweight wood is fastest and ideal; can be sensitive to variations in moisture and degradation
  • Some minimal discoloration on the insides / edges of the hole may occur, which typically is enhancing to the wood grain material
