4 Unique Laser Cutting/Engraving Applications

Posted April 17, 2016 12:00 AM by Epilog Laser

Of course lasers can tackle industrial applications like serializing tools or etching barcodes on plastic components, but what about the fun stuff? Well, there's plenty of that.

Say you're tailgating and in the mood for a cocktail - why not whip out that handy leather -bound metal flask made JUST for you? Wait, you mean your flask looks like everyone else's? Not if you've got a laser.

Check out this video as we laser engrave family crests and initials on this awesome flask made of leather and stainless steel. https://youtu.be/_9BR-kt_svg

And if you're not so much into the boozy projects, there are only about a zillion other things you can do with a laser…

Custom cookies anyone?

Or maybe a one-of-a-kind-iPad branded with your latest vacation photo?

…Or how about some new kicks?

Food, aluminum, fabric, glass, whatever! A dual-source laser system is going to allow you to perform all kind of applications - from industrial jobs to all the custom one-offs you can imagine!

Want to learn how it's done? Join us and watch Bob Henry, of Epilog Laser, use the Fusion M2 dual-source system to engrave and cut all kinds of materials. Follow along on his computer screen as he walks through setting up artwork, determining settings, and then send all kinds of jobs to the laser.

You are excused your ignorance of proper etiquette as you hail from America. One would never consider attending a polo match with Prince Charles without taking a wee dram in a flask.

If I were forced to attend a polo match with His Royal Earness I wouldn't dream of taking a wee dram in a flask- a job like that calls for a keg!!

Cyclists (the mountain biking species predominantly) still have them - special cages made just to haul them, and the main magazine of the Eastern species of these kooks sells flask with their logo on them. (didn't think advertising for them by posting a pix was appropriate) Nothing quite like a high speed 6 mile descent down a twisting mountain trail after a good shot of Jack. Helps to kill the pain after the required crash. (remember - if you go mountain biking and don't crash - you aren't riding hard enough)
