Laser engraving is the procedure for getting rid of a part of a material leaving an engraved mark that is visible. Many people think that laser engraving materials are just limited. People also think that many household and other items cannot be engraved according to the specifications of our customers. However, with the improvement in technology, here at Able engraving & design, we engrave many materials according to what a customer may like. Continue reading

Professional Engraving Using Machines Enhances Engraving Activities
Engraving refers to making of designs on a hard surface material such as metallic, stone or any other hard surface. The output may be decorated with jewel products such as silver or gold. Engraving services can be done either by hands or using a machine. However, the two methods are distinguishable regarding output, mode of working and devices used. Continue reading
Traffolyte labels are used in industrial applications and are ideal engraving solutions. Traffolyte as a material has insulating properties and this makes it ideal for application in electrical engineering, especially where labelling is necessary. It is simply a multi-layered plastic sheet suitable for engraving when creating labels. These labels can help to offer information about some points in a system and are especially useful in technical projects that require keen observation and control. Power plants use the labels to indicate voltage at some points and to caution users against interfering with some sections of the system. Continue reading
Laser cutting involved cutting a precise shape from a material using a laser beam. The beam is directed onto the material and it cuts through by burning the material. There are different types of laser cutters available. The choice of laser cutter depends on the material to be cut and the precision required. Similarly, laser engraving involves using laser beams to engrave shapes and patterns on a material with high precision. The processes require skill and close attention to ensure a perfect result. As such, the following tips come in handy for a laser cutter and engraver.
Proper material preparation is central to a smooth process of cutting and engraving.
First, the smoke of the engraving tends to stain the adjoining surfaces.To avoid this, you should cover the material with a masking tape. The masking tape does not affect the strength of the laser beam, while the adjoining surfaces remain protected.
It is also smart to check the laser for presets for particular cuttings. Mostly, workers will find themselves cutting and the same shapes and sizes over and over again. Therefore, it becomes prudent to have preset lasers for each situation and hence worker faster and more efficiently.
Also, running a test cut before the actual cut prepare you for a smooth process.It to eliminate any flaws one might have put during the actual cut.
The tricks also require being able to print a design at a time. This means one has to use layers. The following are some merits of using layers
– You are able to control the order of cuts.The layers allow you to have control over the order of cuts. The control will allow you to be in control of your own designs
-It allows you to host several designs in one file. This platform is great. You get to have all your designs in one file under different layers
– The layers allow you to come up with a guide. The guide can be easily used by other engravers in future projects
It is always important to have a laser that can point where the cutting will be done. There are lasers with red pointer dots that enable the workers to work with precision. The red dot traces the edges of the shape to be cut or engraved and guides the worker through the process.
Engraving is an art of incising a design onto a hard, flat surface by cutting groves onto it. An engraving is a resultant picture from the art. This art can be learned from various institutions while other some people have the art as a talent. There are various sources where one can buy this kind of art. One of these sources is Able Engraving, where you can get products such as nameplates, memorial plaques, instrument panels, rating plates just to mention but a few. Continue reading
