Why Laser Engraving is Becoming More Important?

The role of laser engraving in the industrial space is a vital one that is growing more important all the time. Laser engraving allows companies to protect their intellectual property, create bespoke items and add enhanced safety measures to their products.

Many companies will use laser engraving to add logos to their products that cannot be simply peeled off. This helps to prevent counterfeits and keep their products authentic and difficult to replicate.

The laser engaging process involves using a laser beam to cut into a material’s surface, creating a depression large enough for the naked eye to see. The most common kind of laser for industrial use is a diode light laser, powered by fibre optic cables that are doped with ytterbium. These lasers can work with just about any metal or engineered plastic.

Laser engraving is used to make ID cards, credit cards and a variety of sensitive documents. Using laser engraving on these ensures that they are hard to duplicate, helping to prevent fraud and resist tampering. Multilayer formats are used on some ID cards to give them an extra level of protection and make them much harder to duplicate.

Industrial businesses are finding all sorts of uses for laser engraving tools. This process is helpful for creating tracking numbers, like barcodes that can be read by RFID scanners. Lasers are also used to provide time stamps, component labels, serial numbers, part numbers and branding, among other things. Laser engraving is crucial to loss prevention, identification, and inventory control, and it is sometimes used in creating safety notices on products or equipment. Its role within the industrial sector is constantly growing as more and more uses are found for it.
