Laser engraving on metal

Metal laser engraving service

The fiber laser is the ideal system for laser engraving on metals. We refer to all types of metals:: iron, steel, aluminum, copper, titanium, gold, silver, etc.

This type of system allows the engraving to be given the necessary height, both in negative (he engraved drawing remains inside) and positive (the engraved drawing remains in relief). As well as making a superficial engraving (marking).

In CUSTOM3D, the fiber laser system we use also allows us to make engravings in areas with curvature or non-planar areas, which would be a type of 3D laser engraving.

2D laser engraving is the basic engraving. That is, a 2D drawing can be engraved giving it a specific depth (low relief), or the area adjacent to said drawing can be engraved, leaving it with a specific height (high relief).

3D laser engraving is what allows you to engrave a 2D drawing on a curved surface and/or make engravings of 3D drawings (solid). In the first case we refer to recording a 2D drawing on a 3D surface. In the second case we are talking about recording a 3D drawing on a flat surface or even on a curved surface.

In other words, engraving and marking can be done in four ways:

  • A 2D drawing projected onto a flat surface, basic engraving.
  • A 2D drawing projected onto a non-planar surface, a 2D drawing projected on a 3D.
  • A 3D drawing projected onto a flat surface.
  • A 3D drawing projected onto a non-planar surface, a 3D drawing projected onto a 3D.

In the last 3 cases we talk about 3 types of 3D laser engraving.
