What is the principle of laser engraving?

Principle of laser engraving

During engraving, the laser thermally acts on the surface of the material. Such application of forms, graphic images or drawings on materials is called laser engraving.

During this process, the material is processed gradually. Material is removed line by line, the laser moves horizontally along individual engraving lines. Using this method, you can process photographs, drawings, logos, notches, stamps, apply small and bold labels, etc.

Laser engravers combine the functions of carvers. Wattsan laser machines can do both cutting and engraving. Depending on the prevailing applications, two concepts are used:
if the laser system is used primarily for cutting, then it is called a laser cutter. If the main application is engraving, then we are talking about a laser engraver.

We offer a wide range of laser systems with which you can cut and engrave various materials. These units are well equipped with accessories (e.g. cutting tables or lenses) for the respective tasks.
