LASER ENGRAVING


The laser engraving is a process fully controlled by computer, where the laser beam physically removes the surface of the material to expose desired design. At Dot Laser it can be done on a various materials such as wood, plastic, leather, glass, coated metal, anodised aluminium. This is the most common option for people who want something personalized or customized -  from simple initials, names etc to creative fine art design.

We can accommodate into our laser items with max 305mm height.

There are two ways of laser engraving: vector engraving and raster engraving. With vector engraving technique laser beam follows the line or path created in graphics software. The raster engraving allows working on 'filled' graphics and images.

Sometimes to get the right and cost effective result its good to combine both methods at once.

If you are not sure what type of engraving would suits better for your project, please contact us and we can advise to choose better option.

DIRECT ON MEDIA PRINTING


At Dot Laser now we specialise also in professional UV digital printing: CMYK+WHITE and clear gloss.

UV printing is one of the most up-to-date digital printing technology in which UV inks are impregnated.

The undoubted advantages of UV printing are:

  • Print on colour, metallic or wood-based materials, composite, matt or glossy. We also print on transparent materials such as Perspex, glass or foil, etc.
    UV printing is used on flat items or irregular shapes such as gadgets, packaging, phone cases, diaries and many more.
  • Unique aesthetics - photographic quality and full palette of colours stun visually and even meet the highest requirements,
  • Reasonable price - UV varnish does not require a significant increase in printing costs, and innovative printers work with very good performance.
  • UV printing technology makes the prints instantly dry and ready to use for further processing.

Our machine allow digital printing on UV-based technology with white ink and UV lacquer at the same time, and the maximum material thickness that can be printed is 100mm and size 770x330mm in max resolution 1440dpi.

Best durability - UV varnishing makes the print top layer resistant to humidity, high and low temperatures, or sunlight - maintaining the highest image quality for years to come.

We produce serial prints as well as single UV prints!

 

 


Combining those two services it creates completely new possibilities - just cut and print.

Compund engraving metals

Compund engraving metals

At Dot Laser we offer compound engraving, this is where we spray on a thin layer of reactive chemicals which is permanently fixed to the surface once the laser comes into contact with the metal. The compound leaves behind a black mark which is more visible. 

We always recommend testing your material first to know what kinds of results you are going to get as every material can react differently.
