We get a lot of questions about what we can actually do with our laser in regards to materials. A basic list of things we can cut and engrave are listed on our custom services page. One thing that is asked about often is metal. Can we cut metal? Unfortunately no, not with the type of laser we have. Can we engrave it? Absolutely!
For example, John has been engraving guitar petals for Retro Mechanical Labs for a couple of years now.
We picked up these anodized aluminum travel cups at Costco yesterday to show what we can do with our laser on metal. (And to have on hand and fill up with tons of coffee in the upcoming holiday show season!) John tested out our header logo on it and they turned out great.
Another small project customized pet ID tags. Our fur babies needed new ID tags so we whipped these up.
Basically, the possibilities are endless for projects in regards to metal engraving. Cups, tags, plaques, labels... the list goes on. If you have more question about metal engraving shoot us a note and we'll back to you.
