Laser Engraving

Trotec Laser's state-of-the-art laser engraving machines are designed to deliver quick, clean, and quality results for a broad range of materials and manufacturing needs.

Engraving Examples
  • Laser engraving is basically the process of creating the mark, material is removed or vaporized during the laser process.

  • Laser engraving wood is a process in which several layers of wood are removed to achieve a desired depth into the wood.

  • Laser engraving a sign is often done with two-ply plastic, (material with a top layer, the cap, laminated to a contrasting color, the core). The engraving process involves the laser removing the cap exposing the core.

  • Laser engraving metal is a process in which the laser removes layers of the material to create depth. This process is used to guarantee permanence in the mark.

Laser Engraving Advantages
  • Laser engraving is an abrasion-free, contact-free process that does not require adjusting or clamping of the material to be engraved; therefore, the user is not exposed to potentially hazardous moving parts.
  • Laser engraving does not involve tool bits, which wear when they come into contact the material surface and have to be replaced regularly.

  • Laser engraving clean! Laser engraving is a clean, environmentally friendly, means of production which produces clean edges and fine details.

  • Laser engraving is fast! Trotec manufactures the fastest lasers on the market.

  • Laser engraving machines are easy to operate. Using standard graphic layout programs and quick one-touch commands novice to expert users will get high-quality output every time!

  1. Even as a professional Rayjet dealer ( http://www.rayjet.de ) I have never heared of of seen engraved beef jerky (might have to do with the fact that it's everything but not common here) . Anyway, a very nice and informative article with enlightening picture material. Thank you very much.

  2. Thanks Jürgen!

    I agree, engraving beef jerky is very strange, but alas possible. We had a customer who decided to buy our laser to engrave business cards made out of beef jerky!

  3. I've just purchased a brand new speedy 300 specifically to engrave wooden photo frames and wow it's revolutionized my business. Not only can I now engrave 4 frames in 1/4 the time as my epilog Zing but the result is much cleaner and sharper :)

    Take a look at my profile link to see some of the items we are engraving on the trotec machine :)

  4. Super! Glad to hear you're loving your Speedy 300, your frames are looking good too!
