Client benefits

Laser or mechanical engraving : which system should I choose for engraving metal? 

Our engraving experts can advise you to help find the best solution. Don't hesitate to contact them

  • Choose your equipment according to the engraving depth : surface or deep? 
    A laser engraving machine will allow you to obtain a shallow cut or surface mark. 
    A mechanical engraving machine makes it possible to engrave metal more deeply, your engraving will be more durable over time. 
  • Choose your equipment according to the type of work to be carried out:
     A CNC engraver is more versatile : it allows you to engrave, cut and drill metal. It will be able to engrave text, geometric shapes and vectorised logos.
     A laser engraver makes it possible to produce more complex engravings such as logos, high-resolution photos, QR Codes, UDI, barcode, and images without the need to vectorise them. Less digital preparation is required with laser systems. However, you will not able to cut or drill with this technology.
  • Choose according to the time available for the application:
    If you want to produce your engravings quickly, opt for laser technology. 
  • Why choose engraving instead of printing on metal, silkscreen or inkjet ?
    Regardless of the engraving technology chosen (mechanical or laser), the huge advantage of these systems is the ability to produce engravings instantly, either individually or in small or large quantities.
