The efficiency of your laser can be best described in “parts per hour.” So, when working on a high-volume promotional products order, tracking your parts per hour is an excellent method to measure the productivity and profitability of your laser system. Quick and accurate setups for each new order make a dramatic effect on the productivity of your laser and are the key to increasing your parts per hour.

To achieve efficient engraving, you need a fixture and template. An engraving fixture allows you to accurately position dozens of parts to be engraved on the engraving table, and a software template allows you to lay out the graphics and text to engrave on each part.
