If you have a product that needs to be engraved? Bringing it in-house would save you money and time.
Until recently, most small- to mid-sized businesses outsourced laser engraving and cutting jobs like serializing company assets, creating corporate signage, branding promotional products, and other laser applications. However, advances in equipment and technology have largely eroded the economic barrier to bringing laser engraving and cutting capabilities in-house.
As the demand for laser engraving/cutting services grows and production runs increase, manufacturers are faced with increased costs from contractors. For this reason, many manufacturers are considering bringing this function on-site. As new products incorporating laser engraving gain traction in the market and the volume of work outsourced increases, there comes a point when the monthly spend on custom laser services is no longer cost-effective.
Sometimes, the time taken to contact suppliers and reserve space in their production schedule can lead to delays ranging from one day to one week (or more!). Manufacturers can reduce production and delivery lead times by installing laser equipment in their own factory. Delivery time pressure and the need to satisfy unpredictable customer demand can be minimized by taking control of laser cutting and having laser engraving/cutting resources available “on tap.”
Thanks to advances in technology, many features previously available only in large-scale industrial engraving machines can now be found on smaller desktop models, while still maintaining a reasonable price point and providing the same high-quality results. Today’s lasers offer the speed, productivity and efficiency to help increase throughput and reduce scrap rates. Constant improvement of design and manufacturing processes have produced laser systems that are more durable and that require less maintenance than older models. As technology continues to advance, laser engraving/cutting machines remain quite user-friendly.
The laser marking process produces a permanent, crisp, highly detailed mark and allows for engraving images up to 1,000 - 1,200 dots per inch. Lasers also provide an extremely fast way to customize products. Engraving multiple pieces at once is made easier with a laser system that allows the user to quickly create a jig to hold items in place and engrave as many pieces as will fit in the laser’s work area.
