Laser Engraving

Laser engraving is a process used to etch patterns and alphanumeric characters onto a surface. Laser engraving uses the heat generated by the laser to alter the surface, either by melting the material or causing it to fracture or flake. Laser engraving systems typically include the laser, a table to mount the workpiece onto, and a control mechanism used to move the laser and/or workpiece, and a controller used to automate the engraving process.
