Laserfication

Ok, I know there is no such word but I bet GW will have used it at some point so here it is, some laserfication. Today was the start of the graphics application and this is one of the Model 75 tubes being laser etched, the video was taken with a mobile phone so is a bit shaky however it does give an idea of how the process is performed. What you cannot see is the huge power source or the trunking containing the laser itself or the servo controlled mirrors that control the actual positioning of the laser on the surface. This is type 3 hard anodised aluminium which is noticeably harder to laser etch than the normal decorative anodising however it does look good and is certainly more durable.
