Identification of industrial parts

Industrial signage goes in an area where productivity is important, your laser sign engraving machine is fully capable of producing batches. You may also be interested in industrial identification applications. With a CO2 laser table, it's entirely possible to offer engraved identification labels to expand your market, even in stainless steel, thanks to certain coloring products to be applied before engraving (such as Metal Marker G).

As a sign laser maker you can mark, for example:

  • industrial identification plates (serial numbers, machine characteristics, etc.);
  • CE marking supports;
  • industrial synoptics;
  • or even front panels of electronic control units

The opportunity of product personalization

With a laser sign engraving machine, you can also consider personalizing products. Personalized gifts with a custom inscription are all the rage these days. As a real added value for customers, personalization enables products to be resold at 4 to 5 times their retail price.

If you're resourceful, this is an excellent opportunity to reach both a private and professional audience with:

  • products engraved with the recipient's name or marked for a specific event (photo frames, personalized jewelry);
  • a range of products made from wood, notably bamboo (key-rings, pens, water bottles, etc.), acrylic or paper (bookmarks, etc.)
  • Products can be created in small series, and sold both online and in physical stores.

With a laser cutting and engraving machine, you can also develop a range of cut-out gifts and models in wood or acrylic. Numerous free patterns are available on the internet to get you started. Objects cut into custom shapes are often more attractive than personalized everyday objects.

Create custom products using acrylic materials

Laser sign engraving machines can be used to create communication media in paper, for example (business cards, greeting cards), but also in acrylic. This opens up interesting perspectives and creative possibilities. On acrylic, for example, with a UV printer, it's possible to print the media before laser-cutting them.

This makes it possible to produce advertising media such as flyer displays, small table-top displays in hotels/restaurants, small labels with QR codes for menus, or anti-covid barriers.
