Laser Engraving

At Lightning Laser, we sometimes find that our clients are not as familiar with laser engraving services as they are with laser cutting. They might be confused as to what exactly laser engraving achieves, what its benefits are and the materials with which we can work with. If you are seeking to engrave a product, we highly recommend you look into this tool. We believe laser engraving to be one of the most efficient and accurate methods of engraving out there.

What Is Laser Engraving?

The purpose of laser engraving is to engrave a specific picture, piece of writing or logo onto a surface. At Lightning Laser, our clients are looking for a highly sophisticated and professional design that will last a long time. Using the laser engraving services of a fiber machine is the perfect way to achieve these results. These machines are accurate, detail-oriented and produce engravings that are impossible to wash or wear down. Unlike ink and other engraving methods, laser engravings can only be removed via a grinding machine. These designs last a lifetime, and no amount of aggressive washing or scrubbing will damage them. Laser engravings are also pleasantly smooth to the touch and work on a wide range of materials.

Laser Engraving Services Offered at Lightning Laser

At Lightning Laser, we offer laser engraving services that work on a variety of materials. While we specialise in steel engraving to suit the majority of our clients, we also work on timber, plastic, rubber, aluminium and other metals. Steel and metal laser engravings can be carried out on objects of almost any size, from dog tags and keychains to large pieces of signage. Many businesses appreciate the permanency and professional look of laser-engraved signs, as they can be a way of communicating the strength and longevity of the brand. Some clients also employ our laser engraving services to create customised wall art and decorations.

At Lightning Laser, we use the best laser engraving machines possible to achieve the desired result. Our computer-controlled designs are accurate in a way that cannot be matched by jobs done by hand.

Why You Should Choose Lightning Laser?

The team at Lightning Laser are not only extremely experienced and knowledgeable, but we work with exceptional computers and engraving machines. We have a reputation for performing flawless laser cuts, steel engraving and all kinds of other services. We also offer additional complementary services for getting even better results.

These include the following:


Hot dip galvanising is the process of applying zinc covering to steel or iron in order to protect the material from rust. Galvanising also delays erosion and essentially protects your structure from potential disaster. It produces a uniform thickness throughout every part of the metal, so that even small, possibly hidden pieces of steel, such as nuts, bolts and couplings, are covered.


Anodising is the process in which a metal, usually aluminium, is coated with a protective oxide layer that makes it tougher and more resistant to abrasion. Anodising also maintains the metallic look of its materials and retains its brilliant sheen longer than any other coating methods.

Powder Coating

Powder coating is a dry finish method of coating that is applied mostly on steel objects. It is more efficient, durable, cost-effective and environmentally friendly than most alternatives.
