Personalised Wrist watch

Using a Speedy flexx laser to customise the engraving on a wrist watch

Try engraving and marking various materials in just one simple step


Preparation

You will need:

  • Wristwatch with stainless steel case
  • Lego for placing the items in the laser machine

Machine used:

We used one of our flexx laser engraver series machines for creating this beautiful sample


Step by Step

Step 1: Import Design

Create your design or feel free to import our available file template. We scanned the shape of the watch to our laptop to adapt our design. Assess the height difference inbetween the materials. This figure is needed for the z-offset (for this sample we used, there is no height difference between metal and leather). We explain the significance of this step and teach you a few more tricks. Flexx technology is explained here.

Now send the job to the laser using the following driver settings:

Process mode Resolution Cut line Halftone Others
Standard 1000 dpi none Color -

Suggestion:

For perfect results everytime, just position or adjust the design by sending the graphic elements for the housing and wristband separately. Using the assistance of the laser pointer, you can position the graphics accurately always.


Step 2: Marking the wrist watch

Enter the material parameter settings - note that these settings can vary depending on the laser machine you are using and its available power.

Always Remember: When engraving using flexx, always focus on the metal resp. on the material that will be processed with the fiber laser.

Step 3: Post-processing and assembly

The best part when engraving your wrist watch is that it does not need to be cleaned after engraving! Thanks to the annealing process, the metal surface remains unchangedand the watch is ready to be worn by it's owner just immediately!
