Laser Engraving Services
At Laserbean, we pride ourselves on our expertise when it comes to providing a Laser Engraving Service.
Our CO2 Laser Cutter has a working bed size of 960mm x 610mm, however material from suppliers may not be in these sizes. Please check the Materials Page for full list we can engrave.

Here are some products that Laser Engraving can achieve:
What is laser engraving?
Laser engraving is also known as laser marking or 3D engraving. It can be a slower process than laser cutting.
We provide several types of engraving, the type will depend on the type of material and effect:
This works similar to Vector cutting, it uses the same paths, however the depth is reduced so that id does not cut all the way through. This is good to mark out lines in plywood or folds in polypropylene.
Areas are engraved using a bitmap image or a flattened vector file (no overlapping shapes).
Instead of using paths, the laser cutter vaporises the material like the movement of a printer, a line at a time.
The laser cutter can be set to make a surface engrave (surface marking) or engrave at depth.
The depth will depend on the type of material, however the deeper the engraving, the longer it will take. The laser head must cut slowly and cover more lines for a deeper engrave.
Not all materials can be engraved at depth.
The laser cutting is able to engrave different depths from a greyscale image giving a 3D effect.
The process is fairly slow and works well on perspex, but can involve a lot of clean up.
Rotary Engraving (Using a Rotary Attachment)
We have a Rotary Attachment for the laser cutter that allows us to engrave cylindrical products, such as our Metal bottles, cylindrical glassware, Wooden cylinders (pictured).
Product dimensions for rotary engraving:
(1) Diameter of the object end to be fitted to the rubber cone pad is 56mm – 94mm. (2) Maximum diameter of object is 180mm. (3) Maximum length of object is 450mm. Maximum weight is 1 Kg.
