Custom laser engraving is the perfect way to personalize almost anything. Accordingly, there are very few surfaces that can’t be engraved. Wood, glass, and metal are great surfaces for engraving names, dates, and events. Just about anything that can be imagined can be engraved.
The engraving process itself is quite interesting. Much like in the movies, an engraving machine is pointed at the object, focusing on the area to be engraved. Then, the beam removes the surface of the area on which it is pointed, creating a cavity that can be seen by the human eye.
Because of the high temperature of the laser beam, the material vaporizes, not drips. This results in creating a cavity that the engraver is then seeing, such as a design or a company name. Observing carefully, the engraver is creating a great looking design or inscription.
Custom Laser Engraving History
The engraving of objects has been done for a very long time. Organizations such as Little League, AYSO soccer leagues and the Girl Scouts are just a few of the organizations that have been giving out trophies and awards for decades. When looking at the engraved awards, many people are asking themselves how great looking inscriptions end up on so many objects.
When looking at a trophy case, a person will be seeing many great examples of laser engraving. Not surprisingly, there are many more items being engraved as well.
