Our Machines & What We Do
At Lasergrave Solutions, we have identified the need for more industry based engraving solutions. Our clients include everything from electrical and data contractors to mining and even marine / caravan industry safety needs. Cutting of material is limited to a maximum thickness of 8mm for acrylic & MDF and 3.2mm for layered plastics. Cutting of card stock, leather, cardboard & paper is also possible with our equipment.
An important aspect of what we do that needs to be considered is that our machines require the engraved surface to be relatively flat due to the need to maintain laser beam focus. For more information on this, feel free to contact us.
Epilog CO2 Laser
Our Epilog Fusion M2 has a maximum job size bed of 1015mm x 710mm. This machine is a CO2 laser and is capable of engraving on a range of materials including layered plastics (traffolyte), wood, acrylic, leather, glass, marble, granite and even some textiles. Our Fusion M2 is also capable of doing a black stainless steel etch which is most suited to indoor applications. With a maximum job height of 310mm we can fit larger jobs into the machine if required.
Our Fusion M2 machine is our work horse when it comes to laser engraved traffolyte / layered plastic materials. With a highly accurate laser beam, this machine is capable of incredibly fine engraving where required. Combine this with a large range of colour combinations from various suppliers, we are able to meet the needs of our customers. To see just a portion of the colours available, please click on the link below to view a sample of our colour charts.
Our clients also have the choice of having their labels supplied with or without our premium 3M self adhesive backing. This is applied to our sheets prior to engraved label creation and is a leading brand in material adhesion technology.
Epilog FiberMark Laser
The newest addition to our line up is our FiberMark laser. This machine specialises in engraving of materials that our Helix cannot do such as switch plates and electrical accessories that are typically made from PVC. This material requires the use of a FiberMark laser to safely engrave and prevent the release of harmful gasses.
With a maximum job size of 605mm x 305mm to sit in our machine, we can produce a large amount of industrial engraving tags at once if required.
Using the FiberMark technology, we can also perform three types of engraving on to many types of metals including brass, aluminum and stainless steel. The three finishes include:
This process is when the top layer of the metal is transformed into a black finish where the writing appears. No material is removed during this process so a flush finish is still achieved. This prevents the build up of bacteria etc in the annealed area and is imperative in industries such as medical and health. Annealing is achieved by a reaction in the metal to create a contrasting, permanent, mark.
Laser polishing creates a mark that can mostly appear as a white finish. it carries similar properties to annealing but is not as contrasting in its colour. The process still creates a long lasting, permanent mark on metals and is also a smooth, flush finish similar to annealing.
Laser etching involves the physical removal of material to create a slight recess. It is a permanent, long lasting finish and is best suited for harsh environments. Many customers require this finish on items such as outdoor marker plates, compliance plates or ID tags. Due to materiel being removed and the surface not being left completely smooth where the etching is, this style of engraving is not suited to medical or health industries.
From electrical switch plates to machinery plates and even cable identification labels, our FiberMark laser will create a premium quality, permanent solution to suit your needs.
Our EGX-300 is one of our earlier CNC engraving machines and utilizes technology that was at the forefront before the inception of laser engravers. With a bed size of 300mm wide by 200mm tall, this machine has the ability to rotary engrave small components that may require a milled style finish or a deep than usual finish in preparation for colour filling.
Our EGX -300 has the ability to engrave single stroke character fonts up to approximately 4mm thick. This can be carried out on all layered plastic (traffolyte) sheet colours that are available for our laser engraving machine services.
One unique part of rotary engraving is that when labels are cut out, the cutter tooling creates what the industry refers to as a "V" cut. This gives the label a distinct chamfered edge and can be desirable in some applications. Please note, 3M self adhesive backing is not currently available on our rotary engraved products. This is more commonly used on our laser engraving services.
Although our laser engraving machines complete the majority of the work that passes through the Lasergrave Solutions door, there still some tasks required by our clients that are best left for the unique abilities of our rotary engraver.
