Laser Engraving Services in Los Angeles, CA

Laser engraving produces high-contrast, high-resolution designs that are permanent and work on a variety of materials, some of which are especially unique, like anodized aluminum. These markings are created using industrial-strength lasers that remove a very thin layer of pigment from the substrate material. The process does not interfere with anodizing, and etched surfaces can withstand exposure to cleaners, solvents, chemicals, and saltwater without fading.

At Hai Tech Lasers, Inc., we offer exceptional engraving services to the greater Southern California area and beyond. The following passages explain how engraving is used and why laser engraving specifically is preferred over other engraving methods.  

Benefits of Laser Engraving Over Traditional Processes

Compared to manual engraving, laser engraving offers the following benefits:

  • Dust-Free: Laser engraving machines use heat instead of pressure to create patterns on a substrate material. Heat from the laser makes the material oxidize, thereby changing the surface appearance without leaving unsightly residue and dust. 
  • Minimally Invasive: Laser engraving can be performed at a range of depths without any direct contact at all. Surface marks can even be done on stainless steel with no depth. Overall, lasers are less damaging than manual engraving and keep the substrate material’s physical integrity intact. 
  • Precise: Lasers provide a level of control that’s impossible to achieve manually. Compared to hand-engraving, the process is swift, clean, and highly repeatable, with little room for human error. 
  • Versatile: A single laser engraving machine can be used to create a host of different designs with only minimal calibration. They can also produce exceptionally complex patterns.
  • Affordable: On average, laser devices last longer than other engraving machines and require less maintenance, resulting in savings that can be passed along to the consumer.
  • Fast: Lasers can be programmed to render virtually any design in a matter of moments. Because the process is automated, it’s easy to scale production runs as needed according to demand.
  • Long-Lasting: Laser-engraved designs are permanent but can wear over time, depending on the substrate material that’s used. Soft metals, for example, may experience more signs of wear than hardwood. In general, however, laser-engraved designs tend to have a longer lifespan compared to other engraving methods.

Applications of Hai Tech Lasers, Inc.’ Laser Engraving Systems

Laser engraving is ideal for applications that require an extra touch of individuality. The jewelry, wedding, and consumer goods industries, for example, frequently use laser engraving to add personal details to their products. 

Laser engraving is also a practical solution for business-to-business applications as well. Bar codes, serial numbers, matrix IDs, and other forms of tracking information can be laser engraved onto objects for inventory and information management purposes. Ultimately, laser engraving can add functional value to any product that mandates permanent demarcation, regardless of the industry or purpose.

Our laser engraving machines are ideally used for varied applications, including:

What Material Can Be Laser Engraved?

Most materials can be laser engraved, as long as they can be exposed to heat. It’s even possible to engrave many types of fabric using a laser, even though they’re not typically conducive to traditional engraving methods. 

Certain surfaces, however, reveal greater contrast and are less likely to wear or tarnish. Here are some of the most popular substrate materials that can be engraved with lasers: 

  • Metals
    • Aluminum
    • Brass
    • Steel
    • Stainless Steel
    • Titanium
  • Plastic, acrylic, and rubber
