We just completed a job for Bespoke Millwork that we wouldn't have been able to do a couple of months ago because we didn't have the equipment. Their job required laser engraving and laser cutting 5 pieces of 16 gauge stainless steel that you see above. Three of the pieces were 29" wide and 42" tall, and the other 2 pieces were large odd shaped cut-outs. If you have been reading my blogs for a while, you may remember the one where I introduced a new piece of equipment, a 250W Coherent laser (we were getting it set up in the picture below), We put it to use and laser cut all 5 pieces.
The morning started here as usual. Once the computer woke up there was an inquiry to custom engrave a brass bell similar to one in our website gallery. She needed it right away! Well, our work load was full, we don't sell bells, the customer had to provide it, and there was no way she could get one, get it to us, and have it by lunch. As I walked from my desk to the coffee pot, I heard our owner, Lloyd, on the phone talking with someone about a bell. Now, I've only been here for 5 months and this is the first time anyone has asked to have a bell custom engraved, so I thought this must be the same person. Lloyd hung up and I asked if he had been talking to someone about custom engraving a brass bell and he said he had - she would be here in 20 minutes, and we were going to laser engrave it while she waited! I knew our workload was full so I asked what the story was, knowing it had to be good. It was!Read More
DuraBlack is a relatively new product that outperforms laser markable black anodized aluminum and acrylic labels and due to its ease of processing is a lower cost solution for permanent marking. DuraBlack was developed by the maker of Metalphoto. It was engineered to withstand harsh industrial and military operating environments without the extra step of applying a protective topcoat (which is required for Metalphoto) making it more cost effective. It works well for assest management, permanent instructions or identification. DuraBlack is imaged with a marking laser to produce a durable, high-resolution barcode, QR code, or human-readable image.
