Laser It Challenge #1: Pumpkin Pancake – Happy Fall Ya’ll
In this inaugural episode of the Epilog Laser It Challenge, we’re featuring the engraving of a gluten-free pumpkin pancake project with a fun seasonal “Happy Fall Y’all” message. We’ll demonstrate how easy it is to design a file using CorelDRAW, use Epilog’s IRIS Camera to position the graphics, and laser print the graphics onto the gluten-free pumpkin pancake.
Engraving food is always a fun application – it’s easy, it’s safe, and it can customize a variety of textures and surfaces. Over the years we’ve seen people laser engrave cookies, pies, toast, eggshells, even fresh fruits and veggies! And it’s always a popular application around the holidays.
Food engraving always shows off the “wow” factor in just how many materials Epilog systems can work with, but it’s also a very cost-effective way to identify, serialize, and brand different food without added packaging. Plus, the process is quick and easy – just import your text or graphics, use the IRIS Camera system to ensure your graphics are perfectly place, focus the laser, and hit go! In under five minutes you can have customized snacks and goodies ready to eat!
We used the Epilog Fusion Pro 32 with an 80-watt CO2 laser tube for this project.
