Every capital investment is a huge decision, and buying a laser marking machine is no exception. Despite the high initial cost, the investment is worth every penny for a growing number of manufacturers.

How Does Laser Engraving Work?
By Jerome Landry on July 16, 2021

Laser engraving is a process that vaporizes materials into fumes to engrave permanent, deep marks. The laser beam acts as a chisel, incising marks by removing layers from the surface of the material. The laser hits localized areas with massive levels of energy to generate the high heat required for vaporization.

What Is Industrial Laser Ablation?
By Xavier Godmaire on September 02, 2020

Laser ablation occurs when a laser beam removes material from a localized area. Used in various industrial applications, this process can create permanent marks (laser marking), remove contaminants and coatings from surfaces (laser cleaning), modify a part’s roughness (laser texturing), cut through a surface (laser cutting) and much more.
