Application Update: Rust Removal

Combine water, oxygen, time and a metal surface and you’ve got a recipe for rust. Rusted equipment can kill a project and may cause major problems during operation or even compromise structural integrity. Plus, rust formation never actually stops once it’s taken hold. Removing it can be virtually impossible. While there are a variety of…

Best Practices in Weapons Marking, Etching, and Engraving

Inscribing your name on an object you craft inextricably links your integrity to the quality of the item you create. Weapon smiths in particular must be men and women of their word, because the reliability of the weapons and ammunition they craft–and by extension, the reliability of the maker–becomes quickly evident the moment a weapon is used….

Laser Marking for Microstamping & Ballistics Identification

Advanced laser technology is poised to help satisfy the challenging requirements of a controversial gun law, while lifting the financial burdens placed on gun manufacturers and consumers who need to comply with that law. Microstamping is a promising approach to tracking crime scene evidence back to the firearms that may have been used in a crime.   It involves engraving microscopic markings…
