Laser engraving :
Laser engraving is a process that vaporizes material into permanent deep marks. The laser beam removing layers and surface of material by using a chisel.The laser hits the localized area with massive level of energy. Aluminum is one of the common materials in modern manufacturing. Laser marking results in precise detail. It lasts longer than traditional engraving. There is a basic difference between laser etching and laser engraving. Engraving removes material to create marks. Both process use high heat to create a permeant marking on the metal. There are2W laser that can work with spot of light and uses as 0.1mm for wood engraving.
