3.Laser-engraving texts are distorting and ghosting

Causes and corrective actions: The product is not stabilized or not placed in the specified position. It is also possible that the product or machine is moved during laser engraving. In this case, you can fix the product in the specified position and avoid touching the working machine.

Besides the three main reasons mentioned above, too fast marking speed, excessive looseness or tightening of some parts of the equipment or other problems may lead to laser-etching words’ deformation or ghosting.

If you encounter problems that you can’t solve by yourself, you’d better contact with the equipment supplier. Otherwise, you can ask the laser marking machine supplier or KingStar for help.
