Using a laser to engrave materials leaves you with an incredibly detailed and permanent engraving that can reach up to 1200 dots per inch. This means that the design is so incredibly accurate that it is hard for the naked eye to distinguish the dots on the image. When it comes to reproducing graphic images, the quality delivered by small laser engraving equipment is virtually unmatched.
These machines offer an incredibly fast and efficient way of customizing a myriad of products. Many times they can even be set up to engrave multiple pieces one after another. The application for this type of equipment is limited only by the user’s imagination. They can be used to put identifying marks on everything from company keys to employee identification badges. They can also be used to create incredible keepsakes or awards. If a company is interested in issuing identification badges to their employees as a security measure, these machines make it possible to create one of the kind designs that cannot easily be reproduced.
Small laser engraving equipment can be used to create serial badges in order to prevent the theft of valuable equipment or belongings, and can often engrave any image from any photograph once it has been scanned in to a computer.

The more knowledge an individual has regarding graphic design, the more intricate an impressive of an image they can create. These engraving machines can engrave on just about any surface big or small and leave a permanent marking.
