NLT Handheld Laser Engraver


At Needham Coding we supply customers with a variety of portable and/or handheld laser engravers. We ensure that our range of machines are not only portable, but are also affordable, and can produce high quality marking.

There is a limited range of industrial handheld laser engraving machines in the UK because of safety reasons. Nonetheless, if you are looking for the flexibility of a portable laser machine, we believe that our range of machines are not only powerful, but also offer great value for money.

N-Lase Hand Held Laser Engraver - Marking a vertical partNLT Handheld Fiber Laser Marking

Our new NLT series of handheld fiber laser marking systems have been specifically designed to be flexible, simply hold the laser head against the part you wish to mark, then click the button.

The NLT Handheld portable laser engraver is very simple and easy to program, import designs, logos, identification marks in almost any format into the software and set the material requirements. The system can be controlled via laptop or tablet and is extremely quick to set-up so you can operate anywhere.


Static and Dynamic (In-Line) Applications

NLT Handheld machine is ideal for two types of applications:

Static Marking Of Large Parts

Needham NLT fiber lasers are perfect for situations whereby large components require laser etching. Rather than face the impossible task of getting your part to the laser marking station, why not take the laser marking system to the part? This is exactly the situation our NLT has been designed for; fully portable, trouble free laser marking of large components.

In-Line Dynamic Applications – Production Lines, Conveyors Etc

Due to the compact footprint and lightweight unit, the NLT Handheld is also ideally suited for integration within production lines, conveyors etc for marking products on the fly/dynamically. Due to intelligent galvanometer mirror tracking the system can laser mark components as they move.


Handheld Laser Engraver: Software

The NLT series of MOPA fiber lasers come with extremely powerful software that can be installed on to any PC or laptop which is then connected to the laser unit to enable you to mark all kinds codes such as barcodes, 2D data matrix codes, logo’s, images and text. The PC or laptop only needs to be connected to select messages and can be disconnected during the marking process.


Applications & substrates

The NLT is capable of marking the following substrates:

Stainless Steel, Steel, Aluminum, Carbide, Nickel, Titanium, Cast Iron, Chrome, Painted Metal Alloys, Multi-Coated Metals, Plastics, Backlit Buttons, Polycarbonate, Polypropylene, PVC, Rubber, Composites, and more.



NLT Handheld Ultra-Portable Series

Off-site marking and engraving is now made easier with our ultra-portable version of the NLT Handheld Laser Engraver featuring a small portable control unit and battery operation for marking on-the-fly.

Benefits of Fiber Lasers

Fiber is arguably the best technology for laser marking due to it’s flexibility when it comes to materials, encompassing most plastics, metal and many organics:

  • Reliability: our fiber lasers have a 100,000 hour working life (MTBF)
  • Cooling: our fiber lasers are air cooled, thus eliminating the need for a water chiller unit
  • Power consumption is significantly less
  • NO maintenance
  • NO consumables
