3D Laser Engraving - History and TechniquesInternal laser engraving advantages:

Laser engraving is a technology that has been in use since the 1970’s but gained prominence in the 1980’s with the introduction of small format laser machines. To this day however, laser engraving is quite intricate and requires computer systems to guide the motion of the laser beam, which produces amazingly clear and precise engravings.

Crystal and glass engraving is a quite fascinating process. When laser comes in contact with the crystal, the surface heats and tiny scratch-like fractures form on or within the crystal. That is caused by the "chipping" of the natural grains of the crystal. The technique allows generating highly accurate images both on the surface of the crystal and even within the surface (this technique produces what is known as 3D laser crystals).

3D Laser Engraving for Crystal Awards

One of key applications for laser engraving is the trophy and award industry, especially engraving crystal awards. Glasso USA is a leading crystal awards engraving company, servicing all of US and Europe. We can laser engrave virtually any type of crystal or glass. Although we offer on surface engraving, most of our clients choose us for 3D laser crystal  awards, with engravings done within the crystal itself.
