BENEFITS OF USING LASER ENGRAVING TO PERSONALIZE JEWELRY
Laser engraving on metal was first really becoming poplar in the early to mid-15th century.
And it soon became a popular way to leave messages, add meaning, and designate certain items as belonging to a particular individual.
This was the start of what we call traditional engraving.
And for centuries it was relegated to just a handful of metals that were easy work with- mostly gold, silver, copper, and platinum.
With the rise of new technology and the development of high powered laser engraving.
However, people now can engrave on harder materials easily and achieve much finer detail.
Now we can enjoy the benefits of using laser engraving on many items such as rings, pendants, bracelets, earrings, and watches to just name a few.
1.Why Choose Laser Engraving?
Laser engraving is a highly developed process of “ablating” the chosen metal by removing upper layers of the metal to create an image.
And it is with great precision and a high level of detailing.
Laser marking does not remove any of the material to create the image but rather uses an annealing process.
It uses heat to change the color of the surface layer of the metal.
So this provides an image while maintaining a smooth and solid metal base.
Engravings of laser is a clean, environmentally-friendly system.
It is chemical and residue free and does not pose a risk for the other parts of the jewelry.
Such as gemstones and watch faces.
Laser technology allows highly skilled and talented jewelers the opportunity to create exquisite designs with little to no risk of damaging the item itself .
Laser marking offers the very finest in precise detail and allows virtually identical duplications.
When necessary without worry over imperfections and changes in the design.
Which makes it perfect for marketing materials.
Engravings from modern laser technology yields stunningly beautiful work which lasts longer than traditional engraving.
And it also can be done on a wider range of metals and on everything from small ring to large pendants and plaques.
It’s possible to engrave just about anything into the metal of your choice- text or graphics.
And you can also set the deign so it engraves at very specific depths, allowing for single or multiple dimensional engravings with ease.
2.Economical and Ecological Impact of Laser Engraving
One of the big benefits of laser engraving technology and equipment is an affordable and environmentally conscious way to personalize jewelry and create stunning pieces.
“Fiber laser engraving systems are ideal for the engraving of jewelry.
The machines use a laser beam delivered in short pulses needed for quality ablation and annealing.
The equipment generally lasts for more than 35,000 hours of life and uses little in the way of consumables.
Choose a laser engraving system that comes with laser engraving software containing a wide variety of fonts and images.
Which will enable you to perfectly personalize any jewelry items”
