Materials suitable for laser engraving

Make a lasting impression with your customers with personalized, laser engraved promotional products. With a Trotec laser device you will own a universal tool that will allow you to design advertising gifts that are both individual and useful at the same time. Whether key chains, glasses, ball pens, USB sticks, or Zippo® lighters - with laser engraving you can easily personalize promotional products.

Refine wood, acrylic, textiles or glass with a CO2 laser. Using a fiber laser, you can quite easily label and mark metals (stainless steel, natural aluminum…) or plastics (polycarbonate, polyamide…). With a laser machine from the flexx series, use both laser sources in one system to become even more independent in terms of materials when engraving promotional products. This allows you to work much faster, more efficiently and more cost-effectively with a Trotec laser engraving machine than was possible before with advertising printing.
