Laser engraving, etching and marking with a sealed CO2 laser engraving machine has opened new avenues for artwork to be displayed on wood, acrylic, marble, glass, chrome, granite, Corian and even on coated metals. 2-D laser engraving can be effectively achieved at full speed on our laser systems. The resolution used to laser engrave will determine the quality of the finished artwork. Typically Laser Engravers use a resolution between 150 – 600 DPI (dots per inch) while engraving.
Marking leaves a contrasting color on metals by application of a water-based chemical.
Etching removes the surface of the material, no depth of engrave.
Engraving removes material giving depth of cut.
Resolutions from 50dpi – 1200dpi are also commonly used. Laser engraving speeds are determined by the material, size of the part, the depth desired and the size of the laser that is used.
Our large format laser equipment can engrave photographs into mirror, wood, marble, glass and other materials. Special software will automatically convert gray scale image into a .tif file with the best resolution for the material being used. Photographs with good contrast between the image and the background work the best to engrave. Metal can be marked and etched with a CO2 laser. Water-based chemicals are available to coat the metal and will leave a semi-permanent mark where the laser beam has touched the surface of the metal. Some metals that can be marked are aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel, chrome, brass, copper, nickel and tin - a 4'x8' sheet of material will fit comfortably onto our large cutting table.
