Here's what some of our clients are saying...

Barrie Lever

The machine is working very well - it is a pleasure to use.

We see tangible differences in the quality of both engraving and cutting in comparison with far eastern machines.

With materials such as 1/8" ply, the beam in the CTR handles intricate details far better.

We have found the CTR TMX65 machine works very consistently across a wide range of materials, we are very pleased.


I received my TMX 65 (80W) in January 2019 and I love its power and capability it is a joy to work with. 

I’d like to thank the CTR support staff for their endless patience and rapid responses to my myriad questions as I learned the ropes.  When my machine suddenly stopped working  late one afternoon I received instant telephone advice, immediate fix files sent by email, and, when it was evident that the Leetro machine controller had developed a fault, an engineer was despatched to my premises early on the next working day.  He replaced the controller and got me back up and running in no time at all.

I earn my living from this machine and it is very comforting to know that capable CTR support is just a phone call away.

Cross Manufacturing Company

Thank you to all at CTR for collaborating with Cross to build us a bespoke machine. It was a simple brief but the complexities of incorporating our existing laser power unit were quite challenging.

The end result is exactly what we asked for thanks to the engineering efforts from your team.

Sims Selections

Thank you so much for being so helpful when answering my million and one questions about my new machine. Your patience, guidance, kindness and helpfulness made it very easy for me to go with this company.

Gary who installed the machine and trained myself and my husband was very helpful and friendly. He went through everything thoroughly which has left me confident and even more eager to crack on and use the machine.

Many thanks


K. Peterkin, Kave Woodcraft

Having now owned two Chinese import lasers (a small k40 and a large Redsail clone 700x500 60w) and having no end of issues with these machines cutting reliable I decided to buy British. After doing a load of online research I found that CTR are one of the only ACTUAL UK manufacturers of CO2 laser cutters and don’t simply source and import "the best Chinese machines"
We therefore booked a demo at the HQ in Northampton. We were made very welcome, had a full demo of the laser cutter we were interested in as well as the software and attached devices such as air cleaners and rotary attachments. Using our own design files we had provided.
We were then treated to a full tour of the manufacturing facility where you can see all the machines being built in house. From metal forming to CNC carving and electronics, it’s all there.
It didn’t take much thought to place an order for an 80w cutter there and then. We look forward to the machine being installed, tested and trained by one of their staff on our premises.
What an amazing service and support you receive.
Can’t recommend enough.

Atec Engineering Ltd

We were delighted to have met CTR at the MACH14 show as we were looking for a new laser, seeing the machine in action and speaking direct to the owner of the company was brilliant.
We are up and running with our machine and really pleased with the support and service that we have been provided.

Newport High School

Please can you thank all the staff at CTR, our new TMX65 laser machine is outstanding and far superior to other laser cutting machines we have previously used.
The support staff at CTR have been continously helpful and have provided the school with an excellent service of care.
Thank you!

M. Scrivin, KJE Technical

I just wanted to take an opportunity to say thank you very much for sorting out the installation of our engraver.
The service we received was really efficient and we appreciate greatly the effort to get the machine installed so quickly, the customer service was fantastic.
I would also like to pass praise for the efforts of the engineer, Luke. He was very knowledgable about the machine and was very helpful. I also felt that he went beyond what I would expect to ensure the machine was working for me.

D. Henwood, Icknield Community College

We didn't realise we had purchased more than a laser cutter from CTR. Indeed in a recent service visit, the engineer spent a lot of time demonstrating what the machine could do after he had undone our mess. He arrived with a smile the same day within hours and soon we were functioning again. This relationship and quality of aftercare weren't in the purchase price!

G. Georg, Paragliding

We have been running our laser here in the Austrian Tyrol for three years using it nearly every day. Apart from few necessary adjustments there has been no need for any maintenance. Due to a computer crash, which was a problem of our own making, we have lost the software. The problem we have had with getting the software again was solved by CTR with a quick e-mail – in next to no time! What a service! Thank you very much – we are very pleased with the machine and the support.

J. Cope, St. Dominics Sixth Form College

Just wanted to convey my thanks for all your help with our purchase. From initial enquiry to final fitting, you have made the whole process very easy to understand and user friendly as well as being professional and helpful. I can see why you were recommended to us.
I cannot recommend you highly enough and look forward to using our new machine!

P. Thurlow, Four Dwellings High School

We have been running our laser for over a year. I can safely say that it is used every day, on some days it is used almost continuously with a queue of students waiting to access it (oh for more budget and a second laser!).
Apart from cleaning the lenses/mirrors there has been no need for any maintenance. The only problem we have had with the software was solved with a quick phone call; it was a problem of our own making! What a difference this machine has made to the quality of our students' work - it has really helped bridge the gap between design and manufacture.

S. Stalker, Weymouth College

Firstly can I just say how pleased we are with our laser cutter, it is absolutely fantastic and just what we wanted. Thank you for your help regarding the size of machine we wanted as I know this is a new machine as the others you stocked didn’t work for us size wise. It is working brilliantly and exceeding our expectations, it has all been very exciting.
Once again thanks for supplying us with a fantastic machine, it’s great we love it.

J. Ling, Cover-Up Accessories

Please can you thank everyone at CTR - we're really pleased with the machine you just installed!

We're looking forward to getting some great new products out of it in the next few months.

R. Hunt, Shape Express

I have been delighted with our purchase of the laser machine, it has exceeded our expectations and opened up a whole new market for us. Together with CTRs fast and local support I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for a laser engraver/cutter.

J. James, St. Georges College of Technology

Some really good stuff is being produced using the laser. The machine is working really well and cutting superbly from cereal boxes to 6mm plywood, with the odd bit of acrylic and banana in there too for good measure and fun!!!

S. Thomas, Llanidloes High School

We are very pleased with the new machine, and the support from CTR. All queries ( which are usually down to users forgeting something or changing a setting ) were answered immediately and your staff were very knowledgable - sorting out all the issues over the phone.
I can recommened your services to any educational establishment as excellent value for money, including the kind of support I would expect.

D. Hassett, Sandringham School

Our CTR laser has been an excellent addition to the Design and Technology faculty, it allows students to produce professional quality products from a wide variety of materials, CTR have provided a very good service and excellent value for money.

M. Pickering, Budget Signs

A very helpful knowledgeable company. Sorted my problems out within a day! Even though they did not supply our laser, still more than willing to help - thanks Neil for everything!

D. Owen, Hawarden High School

Our CTR laser has helped a lot in the school and features as a major part of our 6th form curriculum, with laser work now figuring in most pupil's projects.
The company has been great in helping us. We have had several teething troubles of our own making and been in touch with CTR, and the company has been very useful and helpful in solving the problems.

P. Hussey, Pewsey Vale School

Your helpful and knowledgeable staff were able to answer my questions and provided encouragement to start some laser work in our school.

S. Potter, Warden Park School

Excellent support ... and we can see the huge impact it will have in quality and adaptability for the students.

K. Wilson, Sandhurst School

The laser machine from CTR Lasers has been really valuable, especially for keystage 4 & 5 this year... It is really easy to use.
We’re really pleased with the level of service. Any problems have been solved quickly and excellently.

M. Kent, St. John Lloyd RC School

The fella's delivered and installed yesterday - superb service and very clear training given.

M. Willis, St. Georges Academy

Love the new laser cutter I thought the old was good but this one is great. Please thank the two guys who installed the laser for being very helpful.

O. Starling, Sir Frederic Osborn School

Just wanted to thank you for all your help, we have now placed an order after finally jumping through all the hoops.

Thanks again for your advice
