N-Lase Desktop™


The N-Lase Desktop features an advanced and powerful British-manufactured laser system, which boasts multiple premium features as standard.


This desktop laser engraving machine packs a serious punch. Powered by an incredibly reliable, fast, accurate and versatile MOPA fiber laser, the machine incorporates smart features that drive efficiency (such as programmable z-axis as standard), yet manages to remain in an ideal desktop configuration.

Designed and built by Needham Laser Technologies in the UK, the N-Lase Desktop will allow you to mark or engrave everything from car parts to jewellery.  As part of the N-Lase Series, this Desktop laser marking machine is perfect for use in workshops, small-scale production lines and easily trolley-mounted for portability.

A wealth of laser marking applications


Plenty of materials can be marked using the Desktop laser, including the majority of metals (titanium, steel, aluminium, gold etc.), plastics, painted or coated items, carbide and many more. The Desktop offers the flexibility to etch and engrave everything from industrial manufacturing parts to giftware items.


Ergonomic design


The system brings you maximum efficiency during your marking operation. Just load the part, then press start and the entire marking process is fully automatic. For ergonomics, there is a manual, three-sided vertical door for part loading, which is coupled with a large part-loading table. The focus finder system and programmable-z features makes the system a breeze to use.
