The Brass Plaque: A Timeless Classic

☝️🐉Ah, the brass plaque. Is there anything more dignified? Brass plaques have been around since the days when knights roamed the land and dragons were a legitimate concern. Well, maybe not the dragons. But these plaques exude a timeless charm and sophistication. Made from high-quality brass, these plaques are perfect for memorials, dedications, and historical markers. Here at Javik Laser, we use both rotary engraving and laser engraving techniques to ensure every detail is perfect. Whether it's a heartfelt message or intricate design, our brass plaques are designed to stand the test of time.

How We Make Them: State-of-the-Art Equipment

At Javik Laser, we pride ourselves on using the latest technology to create our range of plaques and nameplates. Here’s a look at some of the state-of-the-art equipment we use:

Rotary Engraving

Rotary engraving is a classic technique that uses a spinning cutter to carve designs into the surface of the plaque. This method is perfect for creating deep, precise engravings on materials like brass and stainless steel. It’s a versatile technique that can be used for everything from memorial plaques to door signs.

Laser Engraving

Laser engraving uses a focused beam of light to etch designs into the surface of the plaque. This technique is incredibly precise, allowing us to create detailed text and images with ease. Laser engraving is ideal for creating intricate designs on a variety of materials, including brass, stainless steel, and aluminium.

Laser Etching

Laser etching is similar to laser engraving, but it creates a shallower mark on the surface of the plaque. This technique is perfect for creating detailed designs without cutting deep into the material. Laser etching is often used for information plaques and data plates, where clarity and precision are essential.

Chemical Etching

Chemical etching uses a combination of chemicals and masking techniques to create detailed designs on the surface of the plaque. This method is perfect for creating intricate patterns and text on materials like stainless steel and brass. Chemical etching is often used for compliance plates and machine plates, where durability and precision are key.
