Laser & Etch Combination

Etch / Laser Combination 

One of PPD's first 'Etch & Laser' projects was on behalf of the Rotary Club of Mid-Argyll, with close links to PPD we offered to produce the Dux medal for our local high school here in Lochgliphead as a donation - we were after all still in the midst of commissioning and needing as many 'test' runs as possible prior to offering as a service to our customers.

The decision was made to produce such a medal on 3mm brass, something that would be impossible using the etch-only process!

New Laser Cutting Service


We are pleased to announce the completion of the commissioning of our new laser unit.

Our state of the art fibre laser will allow us to combine our existing chemical etching process with the ability of cutting much thicker metals.

This will give our customers greater options in terms of metal type and thickness whilst maintaining the benefits of high quality fine etched surface detail.

Please give us a call for further information or drop us an email with details of a specific project.

The Wonder Room


Over 1000 brass panels were etched and supplied to Haberdashery Ltd. for this unique project, the panels were formed by Haberdashery who constructed a 20m diameter sculpture installed in Selfridges 'Wonder Room'.

The sculpture was installed to mark the 10th anniversary of Selfridges 'Wonder Room', the installation took place over 5 nights outside the opening hours of the store, the sculpture is suspended above the retail space housing the very top of the range jewellery and watches.

From a PPD point of view it's fantastic to see the transformation of these panels into a stunning sculpture, we're proud to have contributed (1000 of them) to an incredible installation.
