How A Laser Engraving System Can Help Promote Your Business

Marketing a company takes a lot of money, and sometimes a new company does not have the budget to complete all the marketing tasks they wish. If the company purchases a laser cutting system, it increases their ability to market the company at a cost that only includes the acquisition of the laser engraving system and the supplies to operate it.

Once your company has the ability to personalize items, it's time to market the company. Purchase small gifts for clients. Some of these items might just be small paperweights given out to customers as they enter your store. Others might be free drinking glasses or writing instruments. Use your laser engraving system to engrave your company's name and phone number or website into it. Offer to give out additional items to your best customers to share with their business partners as an effort to spread exposure of your company's name.

In addition to giving these items to your customers, leave them in public places. Locations such as shopping malls, grocery stores and libraries have high numbers of visitors. By leaving your carved gifts for others to find at these locations, they will become curious about who you are and research your company.

Some customers might enjoy collecting your engraved handouts, and this can increase your sales by increasing to offer them as promotional items. Offer to customize products for your customers by using your laser cutting system to customize each product. The laser engraving can be complimentary to those that spend a certain amount of money. Develop your customer base, and then retain their loyalty using the engraver. That initial purchase of a laser engraver can help your company slowly expand to the level needed.

How Laser Engraving Works

If you have ever wondered about how an image or letters appear on an object, it may be due to laser engraving. This process is relatively simple and is used in place of inks or tool bits. Inks wear off and tool bits wear out over time. Moreover, they are not as precise or consistent. Lasers, on the other hand, are very detailed and dependable. They are also becoming more cost-effective as technological advances drive down the price. 

Lasers are used in many different industries serving many functions including general part marking for traceability and branding, metal cutting, and paint removal. It's this diversity in applications and ability to work with many different materials that is convincing business to choose laser engraving. Clearly, lasers are becoming the present and future for all marking and engraving.   

In terms of the actual process, it is completed with a laser engraving machine. The laser engraving machine consists of three parts: the laser, the controller, and the surface. The laser obviously is the energy beam used to make the engraving. The controller is the computer device that handles the laser and controls the intensity, direction, etc. The surface is picked to match what the laser can act on.

Depending on the laser engraving machine – there are three types – the actual process of laser engraving will involve a high energy beam striking a material and removing it. This is due to the heat that is converted from the laser light beam. The intensity of the energy and spread of the beam can be adjusted depending on the material being used.

Product Spotlight: MX Series Overview

Vytek manufactures several machines that are capable of excellent marking results, but today we’re going to focus on the MX Fiber Marking Series.  Before we delve into the specifics of the line, though, let’s give a quick refresher of why an industrial marking system is a smart choice.  

Not all marking projects are straightforward and similar; plenty of them have their own unique demands.  The great thing about marking with a laser, is the incredible amount of flexibility it affords the user.  Multiple parameters can be adjusted on each laser marker in order to adjust the process to suit your needs and ensuring an unparalleled level of control, quality and speed.  As for applications, laser marking is effective on plastic, blackened steel, aluminum, chrome, stainless steel and automotive filter caps.

With the MX Marking Series, our goal was to create machines that combined the high quality you’d get from a Galvo system with the Gantry’s impressively wide range of uses.  If your part size or automation is on the impractical side, MX is a wonderful alternative to the more rigid Galvo setup.  The MX’s large working areas (12” x 24”, 24” x 36” and 24” x 51”) produce a high amount of productivity.  And who wouldn’t want an extraordinary amount of efficiency from their equipment?  Keep in mind that this is just one line of Vytek’s laser markers.  If you feel something else would better suit your direct part marking needs, take a look at some of the other options Vytek offers you.

Product Spotlight: MX Fiber Marking System

The MX Fiber Marking System series fiber-based marking system was created to combine the finest elements of Galvo systems and gantry systems. The MX Fiber Marking System series was created as an alternative to Galvo systems for marking applications where part size or automation is not feasible. The system is an immensely productive machine with very large working areas available at very competitive price compared to other Galvo systems. There are 3 MX models to choose from, with available working areas of 12” x 24”, 24” x 36” and 24” x 51”.

There are tons of advantages of using a Gantry marking system like the one available in the MX Fiber Marking System. By utilizing a fully-loaded table, an operator can walk away from the process and have time to do something else. The MX boasts a smaller spot size than a typical Galvo system—fully capable of cutting light metals (model and power dependent). The cost of operation is very low with the system operating at 110 volts and using as little as 12 amps. It also requires very low maintenance and generates little noise. With it being a fully-enclosed system, it can be put almost anywhere. Most importantly, the system is very cost-effective and easy to use!
