Systems Ideal for Shops and Factories

If you oversee a machine shop or factory and are wondering what laser engraving machine to buy, we recommend first considering the LaserGear BOQX.

  • A front-sliding vertical door, a power focus adjustment feature, and a built-in focus finder tool for height adjustment

These systems are perfect for a factory floor because Class 1 units are totally enclosed, featuring the safest laser marking environment possible. The small size, and their ability to fit at any virtually workstation, makes these units particularly desirable.On top of this, the Class 1 design makes it so no laser safety glasses are required, so movement within your facility can go on unimpeded.

Systems Ideal for Hobbyists and Small Businesses

One of the markets we designed our LaserGear line was for hobbyists, as many people who enjoy making crafts have discovered the value of using a laser engraving system to make marks on metals, plastics, painted and coated materials, and more.This market has some overlap with small businesses, as both sectors may be new to marking and want a simple, entry-level system to utilize in their operations.

So beyond our BOQX laser marking system, we also provide the LaserGear QUBE20W which is ideal for both hobbyists and small businesses.

Key features of the QUBE20W include:

  • A Class 4 design ideal for tool post use or integration applications within a production line
  • Our premier Minilase Pro SE laser software which allows operators to control their marking via a laptop or PC with a USB connection
  • A 20W MOPA fiber laser
  • An 18-month comprehensive warranty
  • I/O for automated system control

These systems are perfect for hobbyists and small businesses because Class 4 units are designed to be utilized in an open environment or integrated within a production line. So if your facility has a high throughput of parts that are in need of marking or engraving, this may be the answer for what laser engraving machine to buy.

Systems Ideal for Hobbyists and Small Businesses Looking to Increase Production

As you consider your search for which laser marking system to buy, another option is our deluxe QUBE60W laser engraving system.

Like the QUBE20W, the QUBE60W includes the following features:

  • Our premier Minilase Pro SE laser software which allows operators to control their marking via a laptop or PC with a USB connection
  • An 18-month comprehensive warranty
  • I/O for automated system control

However, the QUBE60W differs in a few ways from the QUBE20W, and is the more powerful of the two systems. Its differences include:
