In today’s society, there are so many different uses for engraving. Many people look to engraving when they are purchasing special, customized gifts: keychains, rings, bracelets, and many other items can often all be engraved with meaningful messages or initials. In the manufacturing world, however, engraving is used to mark parts and other items with product codes and unique identifiers to help manufacturers with tracking. When it comes to knowing exactly where your valuable parts are, you want to make sure that the code is clear and correct. And there’s one excellent way of doing that: Fiber laser marking machines and engravers.
What are fiber laser marking machines and engravers?
Believe it or not, laser technology was not discovered until 1960. This means that all parts that needed to be marked had to be engraved some other way. Think about how time consuming that would be for the individuals who had to do the engraving. But now, we have the technology to engrave objects clearly, concisely and easily, thanks to fiber laser marking machines and engravers. These machines can produce a wide range of combinations of characters including letters and numbers, serial numbers, graphics, logos, barcode designs and much more. The most convenient part is that no ink or changeable pieces are needed in order to inscribe an object. The engraving is powered by laser technology, which is much more efficient than ink and/or changeable pieces due to the fact that lasers will not leave marks or wear out over time. This means that these machines also save you money in the long run, which is a plus.
What’s the difference between marking and engraving?
Using a laser engraving machine will create deep etchings on an object through direct marking. Laser marking creates a superficial but long-term scribe. Both of these methods can be an excellent way to mark certain objects, but it all depends on your needs when choosing which method is the correct one.
