Laser Etching & Laser Marking onto Stainless Steel


Stainless steel components often need to be individually identified to ensure lifetime traceability.

As stainless steel is such a hard material, the standard engraving process needs to be done very slowly – making several passes to gain the best results,  and then the engraving needs colour-filling with paint to highlight the text – all this adds considerably to the expense.

By using our laser etching methods developed over many years, both these processes are completed at the same time, the text is permanently black and and the marking will never rub off continuing to identify the part for life.

Complicated shaped components can be very difficult or impossible to engrave using standard cutters especially when the text size is tiny and clearances are small.  Our lasers are able to engrave text less than 2mm without any distortion or loss of clarity and clearances are irrelevant . We design specialist jigs to ensure that each line of text is correctly aligned on each machine part.

Due to the vast range of different stainless steels available, we always insist on carrying out a sample engraving for our customers before full production is begun.  We employ several different etching techniques, choosing the one that is most suitable for your stainless steel variety and finish.

Stainless steel switch plates and electrical accessories can be engraved using these methods too.

Anodised aluminium can also be etched/marked in a similar way using a variety of different techniques.

Bulk Order – Valve Discs


We’ve just received another large valve tag order to complete a project at Kings Cross Station.  The redundant Goods Yards have been transformed over the past couple of years with brand new buildings and offices. Each valve and system in the building need to be permanentlyvalve-chain identified.  Our valve discs and fixing chains allow our clients to ensure this is achieved easily.

Not so long ago valve discs were simple,  V1 to V1000+ was perfectly adequate but with the massive development in integrated building system design this solution is no longer ideal.  Each valve disc may need to show the valve no. together with the system it belongs to.  Therefore each tag may require more engraving – maybe 3 lines of text instead of one.  Most engravers charge per character – so there can be a huge cost increase on a large project.  However, our lasers handle such variations quickly and simply and so we only charge according to the disc size chosen – 3 lines of text – same price!

White Valve Discs

Get me out of Trouble Blanks

Sometimes things don’t always go according to plan, do they?  What to do when the apprentice drills the hole too large or the old fixing is bigger than the new one?  It is at times like this that our customers need to find a solution quickly, one that looks professional and doesn’t cost a fortune.  We are proud to say that we have often been able to solve such problems easily and speedily, by simply cutting blank plates that can be fitted to hide the offending hole or mistake.  We can cut all sorts of sizes and shapes to ensure a neat finish and make good the problem.

Recently we were asked to provide some self adhesive grey discs to disguise dozens of speakers that had been incorrectly installed.  By using this simply technique the speakers did not have to be removed and refitted, therefore saving days of extra work and keeping the project on schedule and budget – PHEW!

On another occasion Nurse call points were being replaced with newer versions but these were slightly smaller and the screw fixings were different too.   To replace the back boxes would have meant re-plastering or filling around each point considerably adding to the installation time and cost.   We simply cut appropriately sized “frames” to fit over the hole dimensions – this covered the gaps but allowed access to the wiring behind and the new fixings were securely made.

We are called LASER TECHNIQUES and are always developing new “techniques” to help our customers, so if you have a problem – don’t delay – get in touch – our solution might just surprise you!



Exterior Signs

All the acrylics we use are suitable for siting outdoors.  Not all engraving laminates can withstand the elements but ours will survive outside happily for many, many years.  Our signs do not require regular maintenance – an occasional wash with soapy water and a soft cloth will remove any dirt built up and ensure they can always be easily read.home-slide1

When mounting any signage it is important to allow for a little movement.  Signage will expand and contract with temperature changes. By simply drilling over sized holes and not over tightening the fixings, bowing and hole splitting can be avoided. Always consider where and how your sign is going to be displayed.  We stock a wide range of fixings – something for every situation. We are always happy to assist our customers if they are unsure which type will be the perfect solution – just give us a call.
