Usage

Laser engraving:
The power of the laser depends on the final effect we want to get. After the laser engraving process, the material has cavities noticeable to the eye and touch.

Laser etching and marking.

Laser etching has a depth of the cut, so it’s good to engrave on thinner materials like wood.

Laser marking is used on flat and curved surface for engraving serial numbers or model codes, logos, bar codes, UID and QR codes and not only. The mark preserves its darkness for a very long time. Additionally, this kind of mark is fade resistant.
