The operation and advantages of laser engraving

Laser technology is not only used in the field of welding, but also for cutting, engraving and marking objects. In fact, the laser allows you to act on a large number of objects by removing a small amount of material (thereby creating an incision), even cutting metals of different thicknesses, obtaining precise results and specific aesthetics in a short period of time, regardless of the differences in the objects processed. There is a risk of damage or deformation of parts.

Laser marking: how it works
Laser marking exploits the properties of a laser to achieve precise, fast results: the laser beam emitted by the marking machine is actually delivered to a small portion of the surface of the object to be engraved, marked or cut. Here, the laser beam transfers energy in the form of heat to the material from which the object is made. This creates an incision, the depth of which can vary according to different needs.

The same technique can also be used to achieve other types of results: If the object is not only surface engraved, but also deeply marked, the intensity of the laser beam can be increased and the exposure time of the laser beam extended. In this way, a real excavation will be obtained which, unlike markings made by other mechanical means, may be small in diameter, but still deep.

Finally, using the same technique, metal can be cut with repeated passes of the laser beam over the same part of the surface. In this way, more and more material is removed little by little until an incision is made.

Laser engraving and marking is particularly precise and sharp; lasers enable thin engravings, work on delicate or delicate parts of objects, and work on surfaces that are difficult to reach with traditional engraving tools. However, the potential of laser engraving does not stop there: using this technology - supplemented by special software - it is possible to achieve particularly refined aesthetic effects. With a laser, it is possible to create bas-reliefs of different depths and even change the color of the starting material, since the laser beam that hits the metal can be calibrated to achieve such results.

Application fields of laser marking
Laser marking can be used to engrave or cut a wide variety of metals such as:

And so on

This means that laser marking can be used in various industrial fields: it can be used in goldsmiths, it can be used to engrave all types of jewelry, regardless of their shape and aesthetic characteristics, but it can also be used to mark especially permanently the production of specific companies All items, guaranteed to be traceable over time.

Why Choose Laser Marking
Laser marking offers numerous advantages, as the technology allows for perfect results from an aesthetic point of view. The precision of the laser ensures that objects are engraved or marked in a precise and permanent manner without any smudges in the cuts or wear on the treated surface. This allows for extremely "clean" results, with a high level of resolution, allowing even precious and delicate objects to be processed without damaging them.

Laser marking also has the undeniable advantage of being a technique that can significantly reduce processing times. The power achieved by the laser can quickly engrave large quantities of material, and if the marking machine is equipped with sufficient software, the productivity of the company using it can be significantly increased, both in terms of production speed and the variety of processes suggested to customers. The potential of the laser also extends the range of materials and objects that can be processed, because through the power applied to the beam, impeccable results can be achieved even on normally difficult surfaces or corrosion-resistant materials up to engraving. In addition, laser marking achieves long-lasting results: marked objects are neither corroded nor damaged, so their engraving always remains clearly visible, in compliance with regulations defining quality standards for industrial production.
