Laser Engraving Explained

Lasers have been around for quite a while but they are also very trendy little items.   Laser printers are well-known, of course, but most people don't have a clue about where the laser is or how it works inside the printer because the machine will not function if you have the cover open.

Happily, laser engraving is totally different.  When we're engraving you can actually watch the laser burning or cutting its way through the material. 

The word laser is actually and acronym standing for: l(ight) a(mplification by) s(timulated) e(mission of) r(adiation).   In relative layman terms it means that a device whose output in an invisible region of the electromagnetic spectrum focuses all it's output on an extremely small spot where the entire energy is discharged.  Little wonder the idea of laser energy has fascinated science fiction readers and writers and, as a practical working tool, most of the rest of us, too.
