Laser Engraving

Laser engraving, which is a subset of laser marking, is the practice of using lasers to engrave an object. Laser marking, on the other hand, is a broader category of methods to leave marks on an object, which also includes color change due to chemical/molecular alteration, charring, foaming, melting, ablation, and more. The technique does not involve the use of inks, nor does it involve tool bits which contact the engraving surface and wear out. These properties distinguish laser engraving from alternative engraving or marking technologies where inks or bit heads have to be replaced regularly.

3-D Technical Services Project Samples

CNC (computer numerically controlled) machining (subtractive rapid prototyping) enables 3-D Technical Services to machine the actual material that will be used in production for the prototype. 3-D has multiple machining centers that offer up to 4′ x 8′ capacity. We machine everything from quick Renshape (urethane tooling board) study models to complex machined components for specialized equipment. If it the material can be machined, we machine it. We run SurfCAM software to create tool paths. The client can provide the CAD surface data or we can create it from verbal direction or hand sketch. Our staff has the programming and machining experience to provide the highest quality machined prototypes.

3-D Technical Services has recently added Laser Cutting, Engraving, Marking, and Graphic Imaging capabilities for a wide range of materials.
