The Absolute Best Customer Service Around

I’ve learned how awesome laser marking is! The new station for laser marking is creating a lot of buzz around our shop floor and in our offices and we are very happy with the performance of the EMS400. Everyone can’t believe how fast it is.

Moataz Ibrahim, Protocase Incorporated

I have been nothing but pleased with the entire process and relationship I have had with TYKMA Electrox. I bought a Minilase a couple years ago and everything went off without a hitch.

Jeff Forbush, Owner, 4Bush Weapons

The TYKMA Electrox Minilase 20W fiber laser has been a great asset for us. We were able to quickly migrate our production from older laser technology to the Minilase. It produces a higher-quality mark in less time.

FAQs About Custom Laser Engraving Machines

Can you help me determine the laser marking system I need?

Absolutely! Our team members have extensive experience and they have done it all and seen it all. No matter what your industry focus or application need is, we’ll either have a solution in mind or be able to develop one in our state-of-the-art labs.

We’ll discuss the parts and products you plan to mark, their material composition, their size, their applications and the environments they will be found in, and more to help you decide on a variety of laser marking options.

How will I know if I need a MOPA fiber laser, a CO2 laser, or a UV laser?

The laser system you ultimately select will be largely based on the materials you plan to work with. As discussed in our laser comparison post, high-powered MOPA fiber lasers are more suited to various metals, plastics, coated materials, and more. CO2 lasers, on the other hand, are employed when wood, glass, some plastics, rubber, cardboard, and other softer materials are being marked. UV lasers, meanwhile, are adept at cold marking, which is ideal for silver, gold, and copper, along with polyethylene, silicon, and other surfaces.

Our team will discuss each laser type with you when planning your custom laser marking machine, letting you select the best option for your facility’s needs.

Can I incorporate accessories into my custom laser marking machine design?

Yes! Our team supplies a wide range of accessories for our equipment, including rotary devices, fume extraction systems, handheld pendants, programmable Z-axes, focal lenses, benchtop tool posts, and more.

During our discussions about your custom system, we can go over accessory options so you can get exactly what you need in your operations.
