PROFESSIONAL LASER ENGRAVING SERVICES IN SINGAPORE-title

PROFESSIONAL LASER ENGRAVING SERVICES IN SINGAPORE

The most common use of laser technology, the laser engraving process can be applied on a variety of materials, including ceramics, plastics, papers, MDF, foil, glass, wood, textiles, all forms of metal and much more. This technique results in quicker surface or deeper penetration of the material, and more effective removal of excess waste for ultra-fine details and finishes.

Unfortunately, the detailing and precision simply cannot be achieved through the use of mechanical systems or other traditional techniques – which is why we offer state-of-the-art laser engraving services to those who wish to revel in superb laser engraving results!

WHAT IS LASER ENGRAVING

A laser processing method involves removing the surface of the material to create contrast with depth. The resulting laser engraving is permanent and very resistant to abrasion.

Generally, there are three laser techniques that provide a permanent engraving solution – the processes of Marking, Etching and Engraving. While these three processes may seem the same, the techniques have their own set of unique features and applications that suit different laser jobs requirements.

Laser Engraving

Laser Marking

Laser Etching

The Process:

  • Material will vaporise due to the high-heat processing creating a cavity in the surface that is visible at eye level.

The Process:

  • No disruption and low heat  transfer to the material due  to low-powered beam processing. (Also known as surface annealing for metal.)

The Process:

  • Uses high heat to melt the surface of the material to create a shallow cavity in the surface.

The Outcome:

  • Removes a portion of the  surface area.

The Outcome:

  • Discolours the surface of the material.

The Outcome:

  • Removes a portion of the  surface area.

The Appearance:

  • Engraving alters the surface finish of the materials. 

  • As the engraving depth increases, they form deeper marks which can be achieved by repeating with several passes. 

  • Typically, the mark depth can be up to 0.005” (0.127mm) or more depending on the material.

The Appearance:

  • No removal of material  during the process. 

  • No damage and altering the  strength of the material.

The Appearance:

  • Etching alters the surface finish of metals. 

  • Typically, the depth of  etching is no more than 0.001” (0.00254mm).

  • Should the depth increase, it will be considered as engraving.

The Touch:

  •  Gives a slight to heavy  textured finish.

The Touch:

  • Gives a smooth surface  finish.

The Touch:

  •  Gives a slight textured finish.

Suitability:

  • For components that are subjected to heavy wear and tear, and are required to withstand harsh environmental conditions.

Suitability:

  • For marking on safety components, medical equipment and other components that require QR codes, logos and other identification information.

Suitability:

  • For uncoated, anodised or plated metal surfaces as well as polymers and ceramics.

BENEFITS OF LASER ENGRAVING

✓ It gives your product a personal touch with a customised design.

✓ It is extremely versatile and can be utilised on several different types of material, including wood, MDF, textiles, cardboard, paper, foil, glass, ceramics, organic materials, precious metals and much more.

✓ It enables precision marking on a product’s parts with their reference numbers and other important manufacturing information.

✓ It is permanent and very resistant to abrasion.

✓ It is a reliable, efficient and cost-effective process that delivers a result of substantially higher quality and output (can produce individual, small and large quantities) than the traditional engraving techniques, such as chisel using tooling pins, stamping and moulding methods.

✓ It is a safe and environmentally-friendly engraving technique that requires no direct contact. It also requires no chemicals, inks and toolings, such as bit heads, as the material will evaporate or burn/melt. Thus, there is minimal wear and tear to the engraving equipment during the engraving process.

✓ The laser technology makes it possible to achieve the finest motifs with maximum precision. Virtually everything that can be drawn can be engraved and marked using a laser.

APPLICATION – MARK ANY OCCASIONS WITH EXPERT LASER ENGRAVING

Laser engraving is extensively used in almost all industries, such as aerospace, automotive, electronics, gifts and souvenirs market, jewellery manufacture, medical, manufacturing, processing plant, semiconductor manufacturing and many more. Manufacturers, suppliers and customers can use laser etching and engraving to mark on practically any customised branding logos, designs, QR codes and other important product information.

In this increasingly competitive market, engraving one’s company’s logo and name on signages and merchandise prove to be an excellent branding strategy that helps to solidify the brand’s identity and message. In fact, the stronger the brand, the greater the competitive edge. It’s no wonder why laser engraving has become a sought after approach for those with marketing needs. In addition, its high demand is also attributed to the several industrial and government regulations that require clearly distinct product and part identification as part of manufacturing requirements.

Our laser marking, etching and engraving services are able to provide a permanent marking solution with precision and detailing as refined as 1mm, fulfilling industrial and government regulations, all whilst adding a branding distinction to your products and parts.

Make special with our range of engraving machines of the finest quality laser applications, the best in today’s market. With a touch of pristine accuracy, our machines are perfect for those who wish to add an aesthetic personalisation on plaques,  nameplates, badges and pins to trophies, signage, giftware and more. From minimalist designs to challenging ones, our machines can engrave virtually any design on different materials. Our use of advanced laser technology, combined with our in-depth expertise, gives us the ability to provide immaculate finishes, whatever your laser needs may be.

TAKE NOTE OF LASER’S SUITABILITY WITH PLASTICS

An important disclaimer note: not all plastics types are recommended for laser application procedures.

Highly-utilised plastics such as acrylic and PMMA are types of plastics that are safe for laser application. Avoid plastics such as PVC and polycarbonate, as they will produce dangerous gases and dust during the process, which will harm both the operator and the machine itself as they can be a source of corrosion. Hence, be sure to be aware of the types of plastics that you should avoid when using laser applications to prevent premature degradation of the laser equipment, and also in maintaining the work safety and health of the personnel in operation.

Materials should not be processed with a laser are:

  • Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) (Laser processing produces dioxin!)
  • Carbon Fibres (Carbon)
  • Polyvinyl butyral (PVB)
  • Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE / Teflon)
  • Beryllium Oxide

Be aware of other materials that contain halogens (fluorine, chlorine, bromine (e.g. flame-retardant material), iodine and astatine), epoxy or phenolic resins.
