Personalised Gift Machines

Discover the possibilities of the personalised gift market.

Have you ever bought a personalised gift from Etsy or Not on The High Street? Chances are it will have been manufactured on a laser cutter or a CNC router.

Laser cutters are ideal for engraving names, dates and places onto many materials such as wood, plastics, glass, leather and with a Thermark spray, even metals. 

CNC routers open up further avenues of manufacturing due to the extensive tooling available on the market. Tooling can allow cuts to be straight, bevelled and also 3D effects, as well as multi-level engraving.

CNC Routers

Bespoke furniture can be produced quickly by any CNC router. For example, this butterfly shelf has been routed on the Olympus CNC router with minimum effort and experience and then handpainted as required.

See more information on our range of CNC routers.

Laser Cutters

Laser cutters are the perfect machine for adding engraving or for cutting out thinner materials such as ply, MDF and acrylic. These beautiful words have been cut on an Oculus benchtop laser out of ply.
