I’m looking to laser engrave different names on 100 water bottles for my kids school.
The bottles will be aluminium or steel and probably covered in a paint or powder coating.
The tool page says “anodised metals ONLY FOR ENGRAVING (contact @lasertechs if you want to etch metals)”
- What is anodised metals?
- Is aluminium or steel ok for laser engraving?
- Does the paint powder coating type matter?
If ok to use:
- would I have to use the rotary attachment?
- if I engrave up the side of the bottle and focus at a mid height would it not work/look poop? (Presumably this depends on the font size/radius of bottle)
Sorry for all the questions, I’ve only used the machine a few times.
