Laser Etching and Engraving

Whether you are looking for a decorative and unique finish on your I-Pod ™ or an industrial control panel, laser etching is the perfect solution.

Coloured anodised aluminium in particular gives a very good colour contrast and can be used to produce some striking results. The body of many modern consumer electronic products is anodised aluminium, and therefore can be effectively etched to personalise an otherwise generic device.

Laser etching can be used to add unique information, such as a serial number or barcode to a generic anodised nameplate.

Engraved Plastics

The laser is quickly becoming the tool of choice for producing high quality engraved plastics. Laser engraved plastics are suitable for indoor and outdoor use and are available in a range of colours and finishes, allowing the production of standard signs, nameplates, manufacturer tags and unique business cards. Laser engraved plastics can normally be used in place of Traffolyte or Formica®
