What is Deep Laser Engraving?

Deep Laser Engraving is a process by which a beam of focused light interacts with the surface material to vaporize or remove many layers leaving a cavity in the surface that is noticeable to the eye and touch. The amount of material removed and the depth of the cavity can be controlled by a skilled engineer to produce quality engravings in any material type.

Deep Laser Engraving vs. Laser Engraving or Etching

The difference between deep laser engraving and laser engraving/etching is a matter of depth and where the line falls is subjective based on the shop you are dealing with and the material to be engraved. Going .005” deep on aluminum is very different that doing it on titanium and both are different than stainless or tool steel. An operator must have the skill, experience and most importantly the right laser for deep engraving on that material because most lasers generate heat. Excessive heat while deep engraving will damage and potentially destroy a part thus choosing the right laser engraving service provider is crucial.

Not only can we reach the depth you need, we perform deep laser engraving measurements on all depth critical jobs and provide documentation if needed for quality purposes.
