Laser Engraving

Laser engraving, deep mark

Unlike with heat marks, where no material is displaced, laser engraving involves a process where the laser beam actually removes material from the part. The result can be a very shallow to very deep mark, and can be performed on almost all materials. Deep engraving can be achieved using high wattage lasers or multiple passes using a lower wattage laser.
