Many of today’s low price laser marking machines lack the necessary features to compete with more expensive models. In contrast, the low-priced Minilase-e laser-Engraving Machine (MLMe) from TYKMA Electrox of Chillicothe, Ohio appears to buck the trend and offer high end designs along with many cutting edged features that compete quite favorably with higher priced machines.
MLMe’s fiber laser system
MLMe’s engraver offers several nice features including an ergonomic and lightweight manual front door that retracts by a spring-loaded mechanism. There’s a fold-out touch screen that provides full operational control along with machine status and a port that allows you to view fumes and dust being extracted.
The MinilaseTM Pro SE includes software that easily allows you to mark text, graphics, create barcodes, and date and serial codes. The machine attaches to your computer using a standard USB 2.0 connection.
The machine will calibrate objects and is extremely flexible with a wide dynamic engraving strategy capable of producing graphics, logos, graphics, bar codes and high-speed characters.
The advantages of a laser
- The marks are permanent and can’t fade or bleed and can withstand harsh conditions including sunlight and rainfall.
- Although tracing marks is easy, to remove them is impossible without destroying the surface.
- The Minilase machine is very inexpensive to buy and use.
The MLMe Pro SE is the Minilase entry-level system. It is very affordable, easy-to-use and the etchings created are precise. The machine can mark nearly any substrate from plastics, metals, fabrics and others, and it backed by the company with a 3-year comprehensive warranty.
Although many lower priced laser marking machines on the market today lack the necessary features to successful compete with higher priced machines, the Minilase MLMe seems to offer high-end specifications for an economical price. The machine can easily become the perfect starter laser etching machine for someone beginning their own laser-engraving business.
