Laser engraving is a technology that uses a laser beam to etch or mark surfaces with high precision. This technique is commonly used to create permanent markings on a wide range of materials, including metal, plastic, glass, and wood. Laser engraving is a versatile process that can produce intricate and detailed designs with excellent accuracy, making it a popular choice for personalized gifts, promotional items, and industrial applications. The laser beam vaporizes the surface layer of the material, creating a contrasting mark that is highly durable and resistant to fading, peeling, or scratching. Laser engraving can also be used for cutting and etching, allowing for the creation of complex shapes and patterns.
