Ideal Uses for CTR Laser Engravers
8th June 2016

Laser engraving machines have a vast range of uses and have completely changed the face of the engraving industry. They can be fitted with a 30W-60W laser power, where lower powers can make these machines ideal for engraving rather than for cutting.

Higher laser powers are available for cutting or bespoke applications.

Their versatility is one of their key benefits – they can create accurate and precise results through the use of computers when engraving many different materials. These include:

  • Wood
  • Acrylics
  • Paper and card
  • Glass
  • Cloth, leather and fabrics
  • Stone, granite and ceramics
  • Rubber
  • Foams
  • Coated metals


This shows the true flexibility of these machines – they will work well with both sturdy and delicate materials, producing highly accurate results even when creating the most intricate designs. The machines that we supply are designed to offer supreme performance. They can accept bitmap images such as photos or even scanned drawings, right through to vector files generated from hi-tech up-to-date CAD software.

Safety is a central factor when considering any laser machine. Our laser engravers are safe to use and require little human interaction during the process. They run using the laser software, therefore needing no human input whilst engraving.

Laser engraving machines can be used to produce beautiful individual results, but they can also be used to carry out replications. The laser technology that our machines use means that each replication will be precise, so you can make use of it for producing prototypes and carrying out production runs.

Here are some of the top ways in which laser engraving machines can be used:

  • Creating bespoke designs
  • Making architectural models and prototypes
  • Educating students and creating an endless range of educational projects
  • Engraving awards, displays and signage
  • Pyrography projects

All machines come with an air assist pump, a sealed laser cooling system, laser design software and offer a range of fume extraction systems to meet your requirements.

You will receive full operator training and support, and your lasers can be installed on-site for you.
