Standing The Test Of Time

Laser engraving is the act of etching an object by removing surface material to showcase a desired message, design, image or art through the use of a laser engraving machine. A laser engraving machine is generally composed of a laser and a controller. The laser beam enables the controller to etch patterns onto surfaces where using lasers are possible. Some of the surfaces that can be laser engraved are woods, latex, acrylic styrene, certain plastics, kevlar, stainless steel, stone, glass and jewellery.

The permanence of laser engraving depends on the surface and the use of the object that was laser engraved. For instance, soft metals like jewellery may get scratched. They may blur after several years due to constant contact with the wearer’s skin. Laser engraving on harder metals will last longer. For a bit more permanence, this type of engraving is the way to go.
