Laser Last Week – 5-13-12

Welcome to Laser Last Week where we explore some of the new information being published around the web dealing with laser engraving and assorted services.  The focus is on the unique and remarkable, not the mass produced commodity.  This week there were only 3 links that were interesting enough to make the list. If you have found any that I have missed, please let me know in the comments.  Enjoy.

Laser Last Week Links

  • 5-16-12 – Etching and Laser Engraving – Fabrication Specialists, Inc. – A local Mobile, AL company that specialize in architectural millwork.  The most impressive item for me on their page was the 72″ diameter glass engraving they created. Using a laser to create a mask, they used an abrasive particle blasting system to do the frosting and etching.  Very impressive.
  • 5-13-12 – Hillsborough schools fighting back against costly thefts – Tampa Bay Online – In an effort to prevent stolen property, several schools in the Tampa Bay, FL area have been using laser engraving to personalize and label laptops, musical instruments, and other items that have a high risk of being stolen. Their plan seems to be working.  The first picture on the page shows a laptop that was returned after the thief tried to unsuccessfully scratch off the laser engraving.  How can an idea like this help you, your family, or your business?
  • 5-13-12 – Laser Cut Leather iPad Handle – Instructables – These days, iPads are becoming more and more popular, so why not have some custom accessories?  This project walks you through creating a laser cut leather for your iPad with a little engraving on the back.  Just what you need for those you want to keep a good grip on your iPad.
