Laser engraving is simple, elegant and truly timeless choice to customize your promotional USB flash drives.
Your Logo: With Lasting Precision
The Art of Customizing a USB flash drive using a highly precise computer-controlled laser head to engrave, mark, or etch your company logo onto the metal surface of the USB casing is different from other types of engraving:
The technique of laser engraving does not wear out any tool-bits, and so there's thus no need to have anything replaced. This is a great advantage and makes laser engraving a very fast, flexible and powerful way of customizing USB flash drives. Due to the relatively low set-up costs this is also a very suitable customization method for medium wholesale volumes and rush orders of promotional USB flash drives with logo customization.
However, the technique of laser engraving can be complex, and requires advanced computer systems to control the movements of the laser head. With professional high-end equipment precise, clean and tactile engravings can be produced at a high speed.
When engraving or altering the USB flash drive surface is not desirable, a technique called marking sometimes can be applied.. Marking is by combining a range of various techniques, such as print and hot-branding. Todays modern laser engraving machines are more and more frequently also capable of performing advanced markings that would have been done by other equipments a few years ago.
Laser engraving suits best for the metallic surfaces of our USB flash drives, USB flash pens and looks especially attractive on our promotional metal gift-boxes.
We also highly recommend laser engraving for our full metal USB flash drives, such as the Metal Flash, the Iron Memo, and the Iron Twister.
The appearance of the engraving on the USB flash drive depends on the material of your preferred model as well as on the intensity of the laser. Shiny metallic engravings as well as dark engravings with a high contrast are feasible.
High Precision Laser Engravings on USB Flash Drives
If your company logo or artwork is based on few colors, text elements or icons, laser engraving might be a good choice for your USB flash drives.
How does it work?
The set-up for laser engraving to customize USB flash drives is easy and straight forward:
Based on vector graphic file our production creates a control program for the engraving unit. The laser head of the engraving system will then burn your logo onto the surface of the USB flash drive casings, removing the metal material very efficiently, as the laser beam can be designed to deliver energy to the surface in a manner that converts a high percentage of light energy into heat.
The laser head controlled by the engraving system is moving precisely. Advanced computer-controlled machines carefully regulate the trace of the laser beam to achieve a consistent depth when removing the metal material. Absolute durability and precise outlines of your logos and text indicate a perfect quality:
Laser Engraving on Stainless Steel
The position of the computer-controlled laser head is known precisely by the controller, and it's not necessary to add extra barriers to the surface to prevent the laser from deviating from the prescribed engraving pattern, and as a result, no resistive mask is needed in laser engraving. This is the main reason why this technique is different from older engraving methods on common surfaces.
Laser engravings are a very environmental-friendly and material-saving procedure: As there are no further materials needed, and no waste resulting, laser engraving is one of the most eco-friendly customization options for USB flash drives.
