Laser engravers are investments that pay off. The increased capabilities create opportunities for improving creativity, expanding your product offering, and engraving and cutting without finishing – providing endless opportunities to win new customers. Laser engraving has many benefits over other methods such as etching, embossing, mechanical engraving, and CNC router. For starters, lasers are highly versatile. They can process a huge selection of material types, shapes and sizes. Materials can be processed directly and precisely with the laser engraver without any additional setup, chemical additives or post processing. You can work with products of many different shapes and sizes comprised of several materials such as metals, plastics, wood, leather, textiles, glass and paper. Laser systems provide you the flexibility you need to process them without complicated, time-consuming and expensive setups. Using laser technology, you can create precise engravings and marks with even the finest details. You will also enjoy total freedom when it comes to the design, because basically everything that can be drawn can be engraved and marked with the laser.

Endless possibilities

Laser engraving is used in several industries to create a huge range of products. Lasers are used by awards and trophy shops, companies who personalize products, architects to create models, sign shops, packaging industry, and many, many more. Because laser engravers also provide unlimited design possibilities, the possibilities are even broader.
