When people refer to having their wedding rings engaged, it often means they’re having their name and date added to the back of the ring in a nice and clean font. That’s the case for most people, however, there are some different options to choose from, and it’s all thanks to today’s technology. What more couples are doing, is adding their fingerprint to the back of the ring. You simply have your finger print scanned, and then it’s made into a print, which can be engraved on the inside or the outside of your wedding ring, crafted in any chosen precious metal, style and width combination, with or without additional characters. It’s a really cool thing to do but you can also get more creative and engrave a heart shape, styled from both the bride and groom’s fingerprints across a wedding ring set of similar widths. This works really well and it will certainly wow your friends and family members, whilst making for perfect addition to your Instagram feed!

The Differences Between Laser Marking and Laser Engraving

Posted on July 31, 2017 at 5:10 pm

Laser marking and engraving processes are widely used by manufacturers and fabricators. These processes are used to mark an accurate design onto a material by altering its surface. However, there are several differences that separate laser marking and laser engraving techniques.

Laser Marking

Laser marking is carried out by moving a low-powered beam of light across a material. The beam is moved slowly, using a process called discolouration. This creates marks that stand out visually on the material, without disrupting it physically.

Laser Engraving

Laser engraving also creates designs by using a beam of light, however, it differs from laser marking in that the material is vaporised with each pulse of the beam. This means that the material is physically engraved, not just surface marked.

There are three main types of laser engraving: Etching, deep laser engraving and laser ablation. The difference between these are the materials that they can be used on and how much is removed in the engraving process.

Posted on March 31, 2017 at 10:02 pm

Engraving machines often make use of high powered lasers in order to create intricate and precise designs. While these laser engravers are precise and accurate, they can also be dangerous machines to use, requiring the right level of protection to be used safely.

A common way of protecting those around a laser engraver is by using a laser safety viewing window. These provide a solid wall in close proximity to the laser, but are also made from transparent materials, allowing the laser to be viewed if necessary.

Viewing windows like these are especially useful for design or manufacturing work, which require visibility of the laser as it is being used. They are available in several different materials, each of which are suitable for various applications.

Opaque laser protective barriers are also available but are recommended more for automated laser applications such as production lines and manufacture.

Creating Signage For Those Who Are Visually Impared

There have been many technological advancements over recent years, that have made the creation of signage for those who are visually impaired a much easier process. This is due to the use of automated marking devices that are connected to transcription software, making the process much smoother.

Signage for visually impaired people takes the form of signs that have tactile designs and/or braille text that be felt by hand. They are commonly used outside restrooms and public recreational facilities.

Transcription software is especially useful when creating braille signs as the software makes use of automatic translation features. Braille is not a universal language, each country has its own version which needs to be accounted for when creating the signs.

Wood, metal or plastic materials are often used for tactile signage. The materials used are sanded down and made soft to touch, so they can be safely felt by hand.

How Efficient Engraving Materials Save Energy And Money

Posted on November 27, 2016 at 7:51 pm

All engraving materials cost some kind of energy to produce, transport and use. This is known as the embodied energy of the material, and determines it’s overall energy consumption up to the point of manufacture and usage. Understanding this process and how it saves energy can not only improve knowledge of the origin of a material, but can also serve a manufacturing company for many years. Allowing the company to reap the rewards of energy efficency through understanding and application as to how it affects the cost of materials over time.

Embodied energy is the energy used throughout the lifecycle of the material; from the processing of raw materials, to manufacturing through to product delivery. If an engraving is constructed with poorly chosen materials, the embodied energy used could diminish or cancel out the benefits of years of sustainable use. In other words, using resources that are quickly accessable and applicable saves time and energy which in turn saves money over long periods of time.
