Die Gravur ist die häufigste aller Laserbeschriftungsanwendungen. Dabei entsteht die Beschriftung durch Abtragen mithilfe des Laserstrahls – der Laser wird als Meißel eingesetzt und trägt genau die ausgewählten Bereiche des Werkstücks ab.
Die Lasergravur ist eine Hauptfunktion unserer redENERGY-Faserlaser. Mit unseren Lasern können flache bis tiefe Gravuren auf Metallen und industriellen Keramiken jeder Art erstellt werden.

The aerospace industry is one of the largest and most crucial industries in the world. It encompasses many different areas, with consumer and business travel being the most important, but it also involves transport, military aircraft and even space... read more >
Lasers have become an incredibly important part of the semiconductor industry. As the industry has grown, so too has its need for efficient, reliable and cost-effective processes to match demand. Lasers were the obvious solution for this, and they... read more >
Laser engraving has become a crucial process for many industries around the world, transforming manufacturing and production lines. But, it’s a process that bears many similarities to other types of laser processes, and one would be forgiven for... read more >
Laser engraving is one of many laser-based processes but is undoubtedly one of the most useful. It is used to leave a clear and visible engraving on a material.There are many reasons that one may use this process, perhaps for aesthetic reasons... read more >
Brass is a metal alloy of copper and zinc. The material properties of brass include; low melting point, high conductivity, and being highly malleable. These properties can vary depending on the specific alloy of brass being used. Brass alloys can... read more >
While cutting and engraving are two separate laser processes, they have many similarities, and so a single cutting laser setup can also be used to laser engrave materials too.
In the article below we explore engraving with lasers... read more >
Thermal Barrier Coats (TBC's) are used in aero engineering and gas turbine manufacturing to extend the lifetime of components. TBC's are also becoming more commonly used in the automotive industry to reduce heat loss from engine exhaust systems.... read more >
Our redENERGY EP-Z Laser benefits from having longer duration pulses which can have significant benefits in engraving applications.For this application WF 39 which is a 500ns pulse (full width) was used to achieve 0.2mm depth on this logo in a... read more >
Our range of redENERGY Pulsed Fiber Lasers can be used to mark a variety of etching textures and oxide colours on to Sterling Silver Jewellery. This mark is possible over a large focal range with a working distance of over 1mm.The butterfly... read more >
Engraving is the most common of all Laser marking applications, the engraving process is produced by the Laser beam removing material to create a mark, where the Laser acts like a chisel and blows away selected areas of the subject material.This... read more >
Our range of redENERGY Pulsed Fiber Lasers are ideally suited for a range of engraving applications. For fine engraving the high beam quality of the 20W SM Laser gives finest control and beam quality. However, for applications where width of mark... read more >
The introduction of our redENERGY EP Laser series with its ability to deliver longer pulses has proved to be ideally suited to high quality deep engraving of stainless steel.Experimental studies have shown that material removal rates can be... read more >
