Laser cutting technology
has traditionally been used in industrial manufacturing contexts, but recent
advances in technology have meant that machines for laser cutting have reduced
in size quite dramatically, meaning that they are now used in schools, libraries
and independent workshops.
Below are some
applications of laser machines in gift industry?
- Engraving gift products.
- Personalized Corporate gifts like glassware,
stationary or crafts.
- Engraved keepsakes.
- MDF and Acrylic showpieces.
- Beautiful laser cut candy boxes.
- Laser cut Wedding Invitation Cards
- Laser cut and engraved MDF boxes.
- Decorative items for various festivals like
Diwali, Eid, Rakshabandhan etc.
- Awards and trophies.
- Designer Gift tags.
Benefits of Using Laser Technology
Lasers are far more
precise than a human could ever be. As it is a light-based cutter, it is
perfectly straight, even at the smallest point. It can cut to a size of 0.32mm,
which would not even be a visible deviation to the human eye, and the entire
cutting process is pre-programmed on a controller, meaning that there is no
risk of human error in the process, and no need to worry about the burning or
defacing of a valuable gift. There is a guarantee of straight edges, and laser
engraving allows for an ornate message to be printed on to a gift for added
personalization. This is ideal for a laser-engraved wallet, for example.
A laser cutting and
engraving machine can decorate almost any material, regardless of hardness.
This makes it an ideal solution for glass and wood engraving, especially, with
key ring engravings and named glasses being some of the most popular laser
engraved gifts on the market. As the area that is heat-affected from laser
cutting is so small, there is little to no risk of cracking even in the finest
glass product, so it is a safer option for engraving than the manual
alternative. Some of the most used raw materials in gifting industry are MDF,
Acrylic, Plastic, Coated Metal, aluminium etc.
The safety and precision
of laser cutting and engraving mean that it is the preferred technology for
even the most expensive jewellery. Be it the task to hallmark gold jewelry or
make beautiful designer MDF or acrylic jewelry, laser technology is the maker’s
Because the process of
laser engraving is computer-programmed, it allows for minute, last-minute
changes that can be symmetrical if necessary. Not only that, but different
types of laser cutter can be used on different materials to ensure the cleanest
possible finish to a gift. For example, a laser micro jet is used if the
material is likely to accumulate debris while being cut, meaning that even
larger gifts can be cut, using a wider laser, without the risk of damage or
build-up or dirt. This is a process often used on large laser engravings on
As laser cutting and
engraving is done by a programmed controller communicating with a laser device,
there is no element of precision manual work involved, meaning that the overall
cost is lower both for a vendor and a customer. The speed of production is also
much greater, allowing suppliers to produce and sell more units with a greater
Laser cutting and engraving technology is well-established in many markets, but
is still growing in the gift market. Its applications are almost endlessly
applicable, and so companies investing in cutting and engraving machines at
this time are still ahead of the curve, and will be able to offer a higher
quality, more versatile and more customisable customer experience than most
