With a mechanical engraving machine, the surface of the material is removed with a milling cutter. The haptic effects of the deep engraving, which can be achieved using the mechanical approach, are particularly popular. The deep engraving looks very high quality, especially on metal surfaces. However, this technology also has limitations: Engraving of acrylic surfaces and fine engraving of paper or leather are not possible. A laser engraving machine is the ideal addition to future-proof your engraving company. Why? We’ll give you 5 reasons why you should buy a laser engraving machine:

1.  A laser engraving machine is easy to operate

Operating a mechanical engraving machine requires special knowledge and experience. A laser machine, on the other hand, is very easy to operate. We develop our lasers and software in such a way that every laser machine user can achieve perfect results quickly and easily.

2.  A laser machine has an infinite number of possible applications

The mechanical engraving machine impresses with the processing of metals and with deep engraving. A laser engraving machine can process an almost infinite number of materials: Wood, glass, paper, textiles, metals, stone, acrylic, leather and much more. In addition, you can cut as well as engrave with a laser machine. Discover the possibilities: You can find our material list here.

3.  Buy a laser engraving machine and increase your productivity

With a laser engraving machine you can engrave and cut multiple workpieces at the same time. Different engraving patterns are also possible in one operation. Save your graphic files and use them over and over again. This saves valuable preparation time and results in creative freedom.

4.  High precision of the laser

The laser technology boasts maximum precision: Engrave the finest details and the smallest fonts. Cut filigree and complex geometries with the non-contact laser technology.

5.  New products: Photo engraving personalization

The use of a laser engraving machine allows you to expand your product portfolio: For example, you can engrave photos on acrylic, leather or wood. You will find a variety of ideas in our collection of laser samples.
