Engraving has been an art, a hobby, and a profession for many ages. It has been performed on various objects like wood, metals, plastics and many types of organic material. In the olden days, people used manual tools to carve out images or patterns on different kinds of these materials. Pointed tools, struck on the back by hammers, magically gave shape to stone, woods, and, of course, metals. Later, mechanical engravers came into being.
Today there are laser engravers assisting craftsmen in their craft. Carving out designs on glass surfaces, which was an extremely difficult task and required hours of patience, is now made easy with the help of laser engravers. Laser engravers are used for heavy industrial work, like etching names of corporations in their products. If you desire that your products could not be duplicated by anyone, use laser engravers which engrave with such fine print and precision that it is nearly impossible for anyone to duplicate the design.
Rubber stamping is another widely used field for lasers, in fact more widely used than almost anything else, as everyone needs a rubber stamp to make permanent ink marks on documents. Schools, colleges, hospitals, government organizations, industries, businesses, and many others; just about everyone need a rubber stamp. The usage of laser systems for rubber gaskets, security seals, and address stamps is highly recommended: It enables the user to have the dates or names of people engraved on them. Rubber is a splendid material for laser engraving and cutting, as you can perform precision cuts at very tight tolerances.
The laser cutters are highly preferred over mechanical cutters.
