Applied Laser Engineering have a very long standing history in the design and manufacture of a wide range of laser engraving systems which have found application in various printing, texturing, coating or scanning environments in industries including flexible packaging, bank notes and security printing, ink transfer, TFT displays and embossing of paper, plastics etc. 

Our speciality is in machines which produce engravings into a typically cylindrical form where high resolution and high accuracy over the work-piece are required.  Engravings can be of a graphical nature, a simple texture or really almost any pattern that you can think of.  Flat sheet engravings can also be produced either wrapped onto a drum or in the flat using our new X/Y systems.  Systems can utilise a drum scanning technique, galvo scanning or acousto-optic scanning or a combination there-of.  A wide range of substrate materials can also be engraved including polymers, metals, and ceramics to date.

Our systems offer a great deal to the Printed Electronics arena, either directly or modified via an R&D collaboration for a specific end purpose.  All aspects of our systems are designed and built in-house including software, electronics, mechanical and optical disciplines and we utilise a range of various different laser sources, often customised to suit any particular application.  Therefore we are very comfortable to enter into the design of a customised solution.

Normally, our work centres on the sale of laser engraving machines. However, it is very apparent that the printed electronics sector is at a fledgling stage, so perhaps it is early days for us to sell machines into this industry. We have therefore decided to offer an R&D service so that potential end-users can ACCESS our technology. An initial proof-of-principle sample and development work will be conducted free of charge.  However, an appropriate commercial arrangement can be agreed upon for subsequent R&D.
