Glass bottle laser and mechanical engraving

Creating a whiskey or champagne bottle engraving with a laser is very fast as the material absorbs the laser beam without heating up or damaging its content.

The result of laser engraving is polished, resembling a sandblasting effect.

Several techniques exist to achieve high-quality laser engraving on a wide range of glass and crystal products: 

  • The most common method involves placing a wet paper on the surface before engraving to lower the temperature on the glass surface and prevent splinters. 
  • Gravotech recommends using the Halftone mode in the Gravostyle™ software. The laser heat is distributed more evenly, thus avoiding overheating points that could cause splinters. This mode eliminates the need for wet paper when proceeding to a wine, champagne or whiskey bottle engraving. 


Laser engraving advantages 

  • CO2 lasers can mark glass, wood, cork, leather, and generally all organic materials (paper, cardboard, etc.), allowing a single laser to offer multiple customization possibilities without the need for a second machine. 

  • The laser beam is 0.1mm wide, enabling high-precision engraving. This makes it easy to engrave special designs on objects with complex shapes

  • During laser engraving, there is no need to securely hold the piece, as the engraving is done without contact. Therefore, there is no risk of damaging the item or the tool with incorrect machine settings.

When using a mechanical wine bottle engraving machine, there is no risk of breaking the bottle or glass as the machine pressure is adjusted accordingly. 

The use of engraving gel helps prevent glass splinters and extends the life of your tools. 

The engraving result is white. As a groove is carved in the glass by the diamond tip, mechanical engraving gives a handmade appearance to the personalized gift. It is particularly well-suited for stroke fonts or unfilled logos. Combine mechanical engraving with Gravotech gilding wax on your custom engraved liquor bottles to enhance the elegance of the engraving. 


Mechanical engraving advantages

  • As the engraving is carved, it is possible to add color with gilding wax to enhance the engraving and achieve an elegant finish on the engraved gift. 

  • Mechanical engraving technology provides an authentic appearance to personalized bottles and accessories. 

  • Mechanical engraving machines are versatile tools that can engrave various materials, eliminating the need for multiple machines. 

  • The engraving process becomes part of the customer experience. The viewer sees the engraving appear before their eyes.
