A quality finish for your product

The process of laser marking component parts has become an established finishing process for many industrial sectors, overcoming many of the issues created by more traditional contact marking methods. For over 15 years, Thinklaser has provided individuals and industries alike with cost effective, high quality, on-time subcontract laser marking and engraving services.

Laser Cutting and Engraving

The addition of high powered CO2 flatbed technology to the subcontract department now means the availability of laser cutting and engraving services for non-metallic materials, with the ability to process material sizes, in sheet format, up to 1400 x 900 mm.

By using laser technology as a creative tool we are able to support non-industrial applications such as:

  • Architecture and model making – cutting and engraving such materials as finn board, grey board, card, plywood plastics and much more.
  • Textiles and fashion – Cutting and engraving manmade materials through to natural materials such as leather
  • Packaging – Cutting and engraving foam inserts for product placement
  • Furniture design
  • Glass engraving
  • Sign makers and display makers
  • Paper and card cutting and engraving
  • Woodworking – cutting, engraving, marquetry

We currently provide some of our customers with other production activities such as material supply, product sub assembly and QC.

    What materials you will use for your components? (include any information about coatings where applicable).
    How many will you need to mark? (Estimate batch size if you can, it will help in generating a more accurate response to prices and delivery).
    Will you require first off samples to evaluate?
    When will you need them back?

    We will respond by giving you:-

    A per unit cost to laser mark your parts (all pricing is based on a machine hourly rate and will include any specialist tooling).
    A heads up on any options you have regarding the material process (we may suggest changes to your marking in order to enhance the results or provide more cost effective solution).
    Any potential pitfalls with the type of application you have.
    Simple and straight forward advice on the application (how to get the best economics from the laser marking process).
