Engraving natural stone with a CO2 laser
Last week we have demonstrated engraving and cutting of wood and leather, this week we have chosen to work something swords; Marble / blue stone. Laser engraving of marble / blue stone is possible and gives a nice result. These natural materials are often encountered as tiles and as a decoration element. Although lasers can not cut these types of materials, they can be used for engraving, to give it a personal note.
Standard blue stone tile of 50 x 50 cm
We used a bluestone tile of 50×50 cm. Often used for tiling driveways, paths and terraces and we have engraved the name and house number in the tile. It does require a stronger laser, at least 80/100W, to engrave with sufficient speed and depth.
Want to get a quote, demonstration or your own material?
You are most welcome to see whether laser technology is a suitable solution for your cutting or engraving application or application. Bring your digital design or material to a demonstration and we can view the result on the spot. Of course you can also send it.
The deep contrast of the polished stone and the engraved surface provides a clear and beautiful finish. For larger products, MetaQuip has a special machine in the portfolio that can be placed directly on top of the granite, to avoid the heavy stone having to rest on the machine.
