How is Laser Engraved Glassware Made?
To understand the process of laser engraving glassware you first need to have some idea how that glassware is made. At the most fundamental level glass is created by heating silicon (otherwise known as sand) to 1,700-2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. At that point it transforms into a thick, viscous, but transparent liquid that can then be either poured into a mold or gathered up in quantity by a glass blower and transformed by hand into a vase, plate, bowl or glass. When the liquid silicon cools it retains its transparency. If the manufacturer or glass blower wishes to added color or other effects they can add dyes or other elements at various points during the process to achieve their desired result. That might include adding various metals such as lead, cobalt or even gold to the molten silicon to achieve breathtaking effects.
Once the glass is finished it’s ready to be sold. Or, if the customer wishes, we can take any of our shot glasses, glass bottles, and tumblers, wine glasses, pilsner glasses, flared pint glasses or heavy duty glass beer steins and engrave them with their choice of text and/or graphics. This is done by way of a laser engraver. Etching glass with our state-of-the-art lasers is a non-contact process that doesn’t require the shot glass or wine glass or beer mug be clamped down or otherwise restrained in a way that might damage it. The laser engraving process itself does not damage the glass in any way or produce flaws or weaken the integrity of the engraved glass.
Perfection on a Microscopic Level
When a glass is etched with a laser the surface itself is only affected in the most superficial of ways and the resulting matte finish is similar to a “satin” finish you see on brass, bronze and aluminum. It’s a soft effect that contrasts with the clear, luminous surface of the rest of the glass. As the laser beam contacts the surface of the glass - regardless of what type of glass it is - it heats up the components of the glass including any metal that may have been added to buttress its integrity or create tinting or other effects.
None of these structural elements will react negatively to the laser, since the amount of heat it is bringing to bear is minimal. The air and moisture trapped in the glass however, does react to the laser. Those molecules expand ever so slightly and create almost imperceptible, microscopic effects on the surface of the glass. These effects when viewed as a whole create the characteristic satin or matte finish everyone loves to see on engraved shot glasses, wine glasses, beer mugs and more.
