Laser Engraving – Engineers Tool Box

Reasons to choose Laser Engraving

Laser engraving offers a quick solution to part marking on a variety of materials without the need for hefty setup or tooling costs. Laser marking can be used for cosmetic purposes such as company branding but also functional purposes such as adding bar or QR codes to items to aid traceability.

PCML Laser Engraving

The Method?

When Laser Marking, the laser heats the surface of the material to cause visible discolouration to the surface of the part. No physical material is removed in this process.
When Laser Engraving, the laser effectively vaporises the top layer of material leaving a recess perceptible to sight and touch.
The laser is controlled by a dedicated computer running specific software which allows the operator to control the exact parameters of the process.
