Laser Engraver Comparison

Try Doing These with an Expensive Laser.

Large Stones


Wood Signs

Going Portable

The fact is, expensive laser systems costing $10,000 - $50,000 can not carve deep into any stone, glass, or tile. Lasers can only do flat surfaces with a light surface etch.

We live in a 3-D world but with a laser engraver system you can only engrave on flat surfaces. If there are any irregularities in the shape, lasers will not be able to engrave. SCM’s engraver and Jet Stream systems however are able to engrave on flat, round, irregular, and everything in between. Whether you want to engrave on wood, glass, stone, ceramic, metal, or even something as fragile as an eggshell SCM has the system for you! The best part is that you can engrave deep into stone, wood, glass, ceramic, and concrete with SCM’s equipment, while laser will barely leave a light surface etch. From one of a kind creations to mass production, SCM’s equipment can do it all!

The systems from SCM are portable. You can go on-site to engrave your designs on projects that are already in place like large signs, windows, monuments, and many more. With lasers you can only engrave as large as your laser bed, while with SCM’s equipment you can engrave as large as you desire.
