Ready to Personalise

We've listened. We've identified. We've answered.

As a UK manufacturer of laser engravers, we are often approached by different industries with unique and interesting requests for marking or engraving products. In recent years, one industry in particular has been the retail sector, with the word 'personalisation' as a key necessity to assist with offering next-level customer experience. Whether you're a bricks and mortar store, a digital native or a company that provides goods and services behind the scenes; we have witnessed a real surge in personalisation through these recent years.

Of course our laser engravers are technically capable of offering an engraving service but the 'package' needs to be so much more suitable for retailers to truly maximise on a unique, innovative and exciting experience for their customers, ultimately raising the bar for something unique, accessible and affordable for personalisation. That said, the create. range is more than just laser technology.

More than just laser technology

Rotary Device

A rotary device is the perfect accessory to assist with marking curved surfaces such as rings and bracelets; not just the outside circumference, but inside too. The rotary holds the part into position within its claws and then rotates the part underneath the laser beam to mark it in a consistent motion to ensure the desired mark is achieved. The maximum diameter for the rotary device is 65mm.

 The bed of the create. is also a tooling plate that the rotary is fixed onto. Therefore, if you need room for a bigger part inside your laser, the rotary can simply and easily be removed to accommodate this and make more space.

Tablet PC with Lightburn Software

A tablet PC is also included within the package. It arrives preloaded with Lightburnsoftware which is great for layout refinement and editing your artwork before it is marked onto your product. Lightburnallows you to easily import your artwork in many common vector and image formats, such as AI, PDF, SVG, DXF, PLT, PNG, JPG, GIF, BMP. You can easily arrange, edit and create new vectors within the editor too.

The software is super versatile where you can apply settings changes to power, speed, number of passes, cut order, brightness and contrast and more which allows you to get super creative, designing and developing your own personalised finishes, making them unique to you.

Simply send your creations directly to your laser and watch it go!

If you can think it, you can create it.


As well as your create. laser, your package also includes a small, compact extractor which takes away any fumes when laser engraving using HEPA filters.

For those using precious metals, the extraction company offer a service for the filtration of gold, silver, platinum etc.

We recommend that the neat little extractor sit underneath the bench of your create. laser.

Positioning Camera

The positioning camera allows for clever accuracy when aligning and setting up your products for marking. The camera sits overhead and allows you to see a real-time visual of your product and what you're going to mark; making for efficient set-up and positioning whilst simultaneously giving reassurance on high precision accuracy too.
