"Why should I buy a laser for trophy engraving?"

Trotec lasers are always ready for use, even for a quick or urgent job. Non-contact processing saves a lot in tool and grinding costs, ensuring you turn over the best profit possible – and this is harder to achieve with a milling cutter. Meet any requirement by using the flexibility of laser technology to offer additional services, such as personalisation and individual packaging.

Advantages of Trotec Laser technology

Consistent quality

  • Recurring materials and jobs are stored in a materials database
  • Perfect results for every job
  • Uncomplicated post production

 Advantages of a Trotec laser

"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 -
"I purchased a Trotec laser because of all the time it will save me, the pricing structure, the great offer provided, the affordability, the ease of use and the service offered by the professional and courteous staff – it all made it hard to resist! I would recommend Trotec lasers because they are quiet, compact and affordable. Trotec lasers are easier to operate compared to other equipment."
- Shane Board - owner of Triumph Trophies -
"I chose Trotec because all great engraving businesses use Trotec lasers. I thrive on quality control and Trotec allows that. I would recommend a Trotec because the name says it all – Speedy! The Trotec is faster and much more efficient in all aspects when compared to other processes and technology."
- Greg Putt - owner of Above All Trophies -

Tips for laser engraving trophy cups

"Can metal be engraved with a CO2 laser?"

When laser etching metal with a CO2 laser, it is necessary to apply a paste or spray – which then must dry before the laser process begins. The marking is then burned into the metal with the laser. Once this process is complete, the paste residue must be washed off.

For this operation, a fair amount of energy is required from the machine. Therefore, the laser must be moved at an appropriately low speed. A sharp-contrast finish can be achieved on some metals by utilising this process, but it should be noted that not all metals are suitable for paste/spray marking. It should also be noted that these pastes and sprays are very expensive, and the process is time consuming and slow.

However, metal can be marked directly with a Trotec Fiber laser. A clear distinction is made between engraving, annealing marking, and coating ablation.  

Machines from the Speedy Flexx series are equipped with a CO2 and Fiber laser. Using both engraving laser sources in a single job, without having to manually change any settings, makes work simple, easy and much quicker. The patented JobControl® laser software makes it possible: 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 can be laser-engraved and -cut. The slightly more expensive cast acrylic (“gs”) enables crystal-clear cut edges and white engraving. However, in order to obtain a quality cut, the speed should be reduced. As a rule of thumb, a minimum of 10 W of laser power should be applied per mm of material thickness for a high-quality cut in one run. Laser cutting of extruded acrylic (“ex”) also produces crystal clear edges, but with a small burr. Extruded acrylic requires less laser power for cutting, but it is rather difficult to engrave. Acrylic is prone to flaming if the gases caused by the laser process are not removed efficiently; a high-performance exhaust system is therefore essential. Furthermore, the laser-engraving machine must never run without supervision.
