Laser Engraving Metal Flasks
Prepare the Artwork
Start by customizing your artwork as necessary. Because there is a slight curve to the flasks, it’s best to size your artwork so that it remains in the center of the piece. This will ensure the laser doesn’t go out of focus on either side when engraving.
Determine your Parameters
Test different speed/power/frequency settings for your flasks. Generally, you will not need an excessive amount of power to remove the coating. We used 100% speed, 40% power, and 500 DPI on an 80-watt Fusion Pro 24.
Prepare your Material
Place your flasks on the laser bed, focus the table, close the lid and run the job.
After the job is done, wipe any leftover residue from the surface of the flasks using a cleaning solution, and then rinse them off with water. For this project we used Blu from Enduramark.
