Built upon a tradition of pride in craftsmanship and service, Susquehanna Glass has long been in the business of making things personal. In 1910, Albert Roye installed a glass cutting machine in a small shed behind his house and opened the Susquehanna Glass Factory. Two years later, Albert's brother, Walter, joined the business. The operation grew, eventually moving to its current location in Columbia, Pennsylvania, a stone’s throw from the original shed where it all began.
Laser etching is the process of using a highly concentrated beam of light to etch, or burn, a material’s surface.
The advantage of using a laser is it’s ability to precisely replicate intricate designs and monograms.
Our computer-driven laser machines are used to decorate many shapes and sizes of glass, crystal, wood, metals, acrylics, and leather. Computer imaging software is used to align, size and set the intensity of the laser beam for the image to be duplicated. Once all of the settings have been adjusted, the laser moves back and forth, etching the image into the material.
