Stainless steel is one of the most popular materials used in custom laser engraving services. It is strong but yields just enough for designs to register clearly. Since there are no additives like epoxy or paint, the markings won’t chip away or fade over time.

Non-Destructive Laser Machiningon Steel and other metals

AP Lazer leaves a favorable mark on every business that uses its laser machines. We designed each model to be versatile and to accommodate a broad range of needs, including those of manufacturers and retailers of stainless steel products.

Our machines use infrared laser created by running electricity through a tube filled with CO2 gas. The result is a high-temperature laser that can cut cleanly through a broad range of non-metallic materials. And as for metal, when modulated by CNC technology, it can also leave clean, clear, and crisp marks and engravings on metalic surfaces. You won’t see unsightly burn marks, discolorations, or rough etching when you use our laser machines.
