Step by step

mirror engraving with laser
Step 1

Step 1: Preparation

First, put a piece of anodized aluminum in the area that you want to engrave. By doing this, you do not engrave the work area too. Alternatively, you can also work with the honeycomb table. Then, you set the mirror with the mirror side facing up into the laser.
After that you can engrave the mirror glass, reflective side up, with your desired pattern. Glass does not react with the fiber laser, and so only the mirror layer is removed by the laser. The glass itself is not scratched because it reacts only to the wavelength of the CO₂ laser source.

Step 3: Cleaning

The cleaning afterwards is very easy because the erosion and dust of the engraving lands on the table under the mirror and not on the mirror itself.

Step 4: Painting

The last step involves the painting. You apply acrylic lacquer to the back of the mirror. The final result: The mirror layer is removed due to the engraving. This part of the mirror is now transparent. So the colours of the paint remain bright and intense because of the transparency of the glass.
