Ultimately, image quality and speed might be the deciding factors even after price has been considered. These two aspects of a laser system are probably the most important features an educated consumer can look at. Systems that are slow or that produce poor image quality are not going to be nearly as profitable or productive for the consumer.

For those considering the purchase of today’s laser engravers to accurately compare speed and image quality, ignore the advertised speed and resolution numbers and have the manufacturers engrave your artwork using two or three materials that you provide. Then, compare the ease of setting up the job, the time it takes to finish the job, the ease of switching from one material to another, and finally, the image quality.

Performing this simple, real-life comparison shows you more about a laser system than anything else.
