ABOUT THE PROCESSES

Laser cutting/engraving requires a flat surface or a rotation tool that allows the laser to remain at a fixed focal point from the material. This focal point (the laser beam is focused via a lens) means that the cut edges have a very small, taper.

There are three functions of the laser cutter - CUTTING, ENGRAVING and MARKING.

Cutting is obvious. Engraving and Marking are two methods to create an image on the material. Engraving is much like printing - the laser moves left to right, creating a solid, or lined image. Marking is a cut line that doesn't go right through but unlike engraving, the laser follows a line instead of the left to right motion. Marked images must always be composed of lines, not solid shapes.

Cutting and Marking are much faster, and therefore cheaper than Engraving.
