After experimenting with 3D laser engraving over the past few weeks, we are pleased to announce that we can now offer the service in addition to our normal 2D service.
Unfortunately we are not at present in a position to prepare the graphic for customers (unless it's really simple) and can only work from ArtCam or Rhino files supplied.
We can recommend a couple of companies for you to contact for artwork or there is a selection of stock 3D models to choose from here (both of these companies offer a custom graphics service):
If you're visiting The Jewellery and Watch Show Birmingham as part of The Spring Fair International in 2014, please take a moment to visit our stand to see the latest new designs including the whole ranges of both the GETi Titanium and Black Zirconium rings in one place, plus a selection of laser engraving samples both in 2D and 3D. Apparently it's one big party! (So I've heard anyway - don't quote me though :-)
Stand number: 17V15
Fantastic ranges of Titanium and Black Zirconium rings, together with reseller marketing support in the GETi Stockists directory. What are you waiting for? :-)
Can Titanium rings be removed in an emergency?
There seems to be a lot of myths and legends concerning this topic so I will try to put the record straight. Titanium is a material that is not particularly hard but is very strong and has a high tensile strength. Many people are unsure as to the difference between hardness and tensile strength and often get them confused. Let us consider diamond, the hardest material currently known to man. If you had a rod of diamond that was 25mm in diameter and 1 metre long, you wouldn't easily scratch it or mark it but if you try to bend it over your knee, you would probably find that it would snap like a carrot.
A laser, which is an acronym of Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, is a highly focused controlled beam of single colour light and can be used either to discolour the surface of a component or to vaporise material by laser ablation to produce a deep engraving. The laser parameters and position can be precisely controlled to provide high contrast marks in the form of barcodes, data matrix codes and logo graphics. If a surface is painted or anodised then the laser can be used to precisely remove the surface to give a contrast. By choosing a contrasting colour translucent substrate, a graphic can be backlit for night and day readability for example on car dashboards and aircraft cockpit controls.
What materials can be marked?
All metals (both precious and non-precious), most plastics, glass and many ceramics can be marked or etched.
As the demand for more personalized items of jewelery has increased, many jewelers are appreciating the benefits of lasers and their engraving capability.
Titanium was first discovered by clergyman William Gregor in 1791 who, basically didn't know what it was until in 1795, Austrian chemist Martin Heinrich Klaproth identified it as a new element, gave it the number 22 and named it Titanium after the Greek Gods - The Titans. Even in those early days a gap in the market was spotted for Titanium rings but, due to the lack of technology available at the time, jewellery designers were unable to meet the demands of the public for this hot new material and so designs lay dormant for 202 years until in 1997 GETi started production on them.
This is a question that gets raised quite frequently.
Many Titanium ring suppliers give a warning about taking care with getting the size right as it can't be altered in the future - this isn't strictly the case as it all depends on different factors.
