What is permanent marking and why is it so effective?
Permanent marking via laser is immensely durable and will survive the harshest environments. At its core, marking is the 'discolouration' of the material to make it stand out from the background.
Engraving has the same longevity as permanent marking. During the engraving process, surface material is removed, rather than just 'discoloured', to differentiate it from the background. Both of these processes are distinctly different and, to achieve professional results, call for a different laser type.
To allow us to mark/engrave the widest possible spectrum of materials, we employ the latest advanced technology available. The dual laser system within our state-of-the-art laser allows us to mark metals as well as engrave and cut a variety of other materials.
We believe that only by knowing our laser's vast capabilities in detail, we can give our customers the best possible professional product they require. Therefore we continue to test the limits of our laser with new processes and materials.
Without question our laser can handle materials like stainless steel and aluminium as well as a range of plastics such as traffolyte with ease. In addition, glass, wood, leather, and stone and paper are other excellent media for laser engraving/marking. We do love a challenge so we encourage customers to approach us with their specific and unique requirements.
