Make a lasting impression on your customers with personalised, laser marking and laser engraving of promotional products. With a Trotec laser device, you will own a universal tool that allows you to design advertising gifts and promotional items that are individual and useful at the same time. Whether key chains, glasses, ball pens, engraved usb sticks, zippo engraving or lighters, personalised promotional products are easily created with a Trotec laser system.

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 of the flexx series, use both laser sources in one system to become even more independent in terms of material. This allows you to work much more efficiently, faster and more cost-effectively with a Trotec laser engraving machine than this was possible before with advertising printing.
