A variety of natural stones can be successfully laser etched. Granite is the most popular stone for creating headstones and monuments. Laser etching turns the stone a light gray to white color that stands out on the granite face. Kern’s HSE laser system can be equipped with the Z12 monument package. This package allows for heavy stones of up to 12″ thick to be placed on the laser table. A roller bed allows a single operator to load and unload the stones. Slate, marble and limestone are just a few other stones that are used with lasers.
