Laser engraving is the practice of using lasers to engrave a surface by cutting into the material to create a design. This process takes away material to leave behind a permanent mark (usually words or a design for signs). Laser engraving does not involve inks, or tools bits that cause the surface to wear out, which means it lasts much longer than laser marking. Read on to learn more about why the benefits of this process in the sign making industry.
Accuracy is always extremely important whenever it comes to creating a good business sign. Laser engraving increases accuracy because it is computer controlled, which also allows the creation of more complex designs than traditional engraving methods.
Traditionally, engraving is a time-consuming process because the material has to be scratched by hand using specialized tools. Laser engravers are usually fitted onto a production line, which significantly reduces the manufacturing time of business signs.
A faster production time means less wear and tear on the tools involved in the process. Also, since the laser does not come into contact with the material being engraved all of the pieces of the machine last longer, making replacements costs cheaper. This in turn makes the sign itself less expensive than a traditionally engraved sign.
The laser engraving method can be used on a wide variety of signage materials, which keeps your options open and flexible. All of the following materials can be used:
- Fabrics and Leather
Laser engraving produces a sign that is crisp, clean and permanent. Today’s current laser systems have evolved into machines that are more sophisticated, which means the end product is better. It also means that the laser can create more complex designs through the aid of a computer. Thus, a laser engraved sign for your business will look exactly the way you want and in the best way possible.
