Albert Einstein developed the theory of radiation that lead to the development of LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) technology. It wasn’t until the early 1960s that scientists discovered how handy a focused beam of laser light could be. It’s unlikely they realized that within 20 years, this technology would take the marking industry by storm.
As the years progress, laser marking technologies evolve and improve.The range of applications for laser marking, engraving, cutting, and etching, are now probably well beyond what the original inventors or Albert Einstein could have imagined.
Some of the applications of laser marking include:
Laser marking (including etching, engraving, and cutting) is used across more industries and for more applications than you can imagine. This is a small sample of the industries where laser marking provides creative, compliant, and efficient products and services across the globe.
- Automotive parts
- Medical equipment and implements
- Food and pharmaceutical applications
- Business cards
- Personalized gifts and promotional items
- Arts and crafts
- Musical instruments
- Military and law enforcement
Materials for laser engraving and marking technology
- Natural materials like wood, paper, cardboard, and fiberboard
- Stone and glass
- Metals and coated metals
Three primary benefits of laser marking
- High-speed marking applications help in industries where high productivity and mass production are important
- Durable marking that is resistant to heat, acid, and abrasion that won’t damage the material’s surface
- Laser marking is currently the ultimate in high-precision marking across a wide range of industries
Latest technology in laser marking
One of the latest in new laser marking technology is handheld engraving machine technology. Imagine the current and future benefits and applications for this kind of equipment across virtually every industry.
- Ease of operation
- Low voltage power source
- Superior laser beam quality
- Durable and reliable
- Meets the governmental and industry strict standards for marking
- Programming versatility
- Freedom for marking, embossing, and engraving
This new hadn held technology gives users the accuracy and speed they expect from laser technology without sacrificing the precision, accuracy, and character sharpness of large machines.
Just like larger laser systems, hadn held laser technology offers options like accessories and attachments that can expand your business applications and offerings.
Not only is hadn held laser tech new and exciting, the programming and control apps are wider and easier to use. The hadn held design is ergonomic, lightweight (lighter than you would expect), and comfortable to use even if you’re marking, etching, cutting, or engraving all day.
WYSIWIG software (like you see with website design on computers) can be used on your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop, making it even easier to control. You don’t have to be hardwired into your Internet-enabled devices either. That’s right, new hadn held laser machines allow you to connect via WiFi, Bluetooth, or a wired connection.
Hadn held laser marking machines like MarkinBOX are bringing new life into the laser marking, engraving, etching, and cutting industry. The applications are limitless for identification marking on wine barrels and pipes for pipelines to creating personalized gifts and art for consumers.
