“Why should I buy a laser machine for trophy engraving?”

Trotec laser machines are always ready to be fired up and used, even if it’s just for a quick or urgent job. The non-contact processing capabilities will save you a lot of money in tools, as well as your usual grinding cost. This will mean you’ll always turn over the best possible profit, which is much harder with a milling cutter. You can easily meet any requirement by making the most of the flexible, intelligent machines. You can even begin offering your customers additional services, including personalisation or packaging. The sky really is your only limit with laser technology.

"I bought a Trotec to replace an old laser. The Trotec was not the cheapest laser - however the ROI was enough benefit to cover the initial upfront price difference. Also, Trotecs support level is fantastic. Trotec lasers are serious machines that are very fast and easy to use. It only takes hours to learn the Rayjet software, and the interface is very user friendly."
- Ian Stuart - manager at Trophy Superstore -

Tips for Laser Engraving Trophies

“Can I engrave metal with a CO2 laser?”

When you engrave metal with a CO2 laser, you need to apply a paste or spray. It then needs to dry completely before the laser process begins. Your desired marking is then burned into the metal with your laser. When the process is completed, you need to wash the remaining paste residue off your workpiece. This operation requires a fair amount of laser energy, so the laser needs to be moved at a very low speed. You can achieve a sharp-contrast on some metals this way, but the pastes and sprays tend to be quite expensive.

However, metal can be marked directly – without the use of additional equipment – with a Trotec fiber laser. A clear distinction can be made between engraving, annealing marking and coating ablation, and a fiber laser is capable of all these processes.

Machines from the Trotec Speedy Flexx series are all equipped with a CO2 as well as a fiber laser source. You can use both sources, without having to manually change any settings as you go, which will reduce your work time greatly. Metal marking has never been so easy; Simply assign the desired laser source to each colour of the graphic, and you’re ready to go!

"Acrylic is not the same as acrylic?"

Acrylic is a great material that can be engraved and cut with a laser. There is cheap acrylic and expensive acrylic, and the slightly more expensive cast acrylic ('gs') produces beautiful, crystal-cut edges and white engravings. However, if you want to obtain a quality cut, you should always reduce the speed. Usually, a minimum of 10-Watt laser power should be applied per mm of material to achieve a high-quality cut in the one run. Laser cutting extruded acrylic ('ex') also produces beautiful edges, but with a slight burr. It does, however, require less laser power, but it’s somewhat difficult to engrave. Remember, acrylic is prone to flaming if the laser gases are not removed effectively. So, a high-performance exhaust system is essential. The laser engraving machine should never be run without appropriate supervision.
