Laser Etched Wind Chime
As a year-end class gift to a teacher, one of our customers had purchased a cast iron wind chime. They wanted to engrave the chime with a thank-you message along with the signatures of all of the students. This was a good challenge since the type of cosmetic finish was unknown, and the large cast-iron chime was quite heavy. CCD performed some etching tests in an inconspicuous area of the chime to dial in the laser settings. We then fabricated some support rollers and other modifications for our laser’s rotary attachment (since it was really designed to hold much smaller, lighter-weight objects). We think the wind chime turned out great, and we hope the teacher will love this beautiful keepsake.
