Create Beautiful Designs with Laser Engravers for Glass
Glass laser engraving and etching have become popular techniques for producing images, patterns, and logos. Whether it's pint glasses, shot glasses, coffee mugs, wine glasses, wine bottles - well, you get the idea - lasers work wonderfully for customizing all kinds of glass products!
Glass engraving and etching with one of our laser engravers produce a beautiful frosted effect, allowing you to etch custom logos and designs on nearly any glass product.
A Rotary Attachment option makes setting up glassware for engraving a breeze! The rotary allows you to easily set up different sizes of glasses, mugs, vases and wine bottles for engraving. The rotary turns the piece as the laser etches your pattern. No special measurements are required to create these custom etchings!
With a laser engraving machine you can implement simple, precise and impressive engravings on glass, mirror or crystal. Achieve fascinating matt effects, the finest contours or details – whether you laser engrave photos, texts or logos into glass. Engrave wine glasses, champagne glasses, champagne flutes, beer glasses, bottles, mirrors or window glass with special effects. This process is particularly easy using the rotary engraving attachment. A wine glass or other drinking glass with an individual engraving, e.g. for various celebrations, is a perfect and memorable gift. In this way, every laser-engraved glass is unique.

How to laser engrave glass
When a laser beam hits a glass surface, the moisture and air trapped between the silica elements react by expanding. Since the glass is rigid, this expansion causes microscopic fractures on the glass surfaces which is what we see as fracturing and chipping or simply engravings.
The basic steps for laser engraving are quite easy to follow. Once you have correctly set up your laser and put the necessary safety parameters in place, follow the following process:
1 - Develop your idea (this can be an image, name, logo, design, etc.)
2 - Design it with the help of design software. While you are at it, be sure the engraver is compatible with your files. Some of the machines on the market are sold with their own software while others are created to be compatible with other software so find out the compatibility of your device with the software before you begin.
3 - Send your design to the machine. You can adjust laser strength, number of passes, depth of cut, line thickness, and speed. It is important to test the glass under varied settings to know the right combination for the best results.
4 - After the engraving task is complete, clean your glass a little. Use a nail brush to remove shards and rubbing alcohol to clean off any residue.
Optional Rotary Attachment for Cylindrical Objects
For engraving cylindrical glasses, it is recommended to use of a rotary roller attachment. It is connected to the laser software and can thus rotate the glass perfectly during the engraving process to ensure a precise and undistorted image on glass. Some of the best rotary rollers in the market are listed below
