Why is Engraving used?
There are two main areas where engraving is used:
- To produce smaller scale signs which are required to be robust, due to them either being in an outdoor location or in high wear areas. This is common for valve, cable, machine and asset tags and control panels.
- For decorative signs, such as plaques engraving can also be used to produce creative, intricate and interesting signs using materials such as wood, glass and acrylics.
Which products are made by Engraving?
Data plates and tags
Engraving is the perfect method for producing data plates. You can laser mark self-adhesive materials, multi-layered plastics and metals.
The laser marking of electronic components is high-contrast, permanent and very fast. Control cabinet components, electrical housings and electronic components can be marked.
Signs and Graphics
Laser finishing provides the capabilities to create unique POS/pop-up displays, illuminated and business signs. It is also very common for external and internal plaques to be engraved, these are often seen outside offices or businesses.
What materials can be engraved?
Almost any type of wood, MDF or ply.
Many plastics but the most popular by far is traffolyte for data plates and Perspex for signage.
There are many types of material that can be engraved, from leather to glass to slate. If you are unsure, just ask!
