Advantages of cliché laser for pad printing

The advantages of the laser process over other methods are numerous:

  • Unprecedented speed: Printing blocks are completed within minutes, allowing the production process to continue uninterrupted and the pad printing machines to be used optimally.
  • Cost savings on personnel: The fast laser technology minimizes the time required for making clichés, saving personnel costs.
  • Reduction of film costs: Because films are no longer needed to make clichés, savings are made on the costs of film material.
  • Unparalleled precision: The precision of the laser makes it possible to produce clichés exactly in the same location by using a base plate with dowel pins. This minimizes set-up time, even on colorful print jobs, and eliminates the need for repeated adjustments for consistent and accurate results.

Features of the desktop cliche laser engraving machine

High Speed – Permanent Engraving

Engravings with cliché fiber lasers are usually placed within a few seconds and are permanent: resistant to chemicals and remain readable even under mechanical stress.

High resolution and precision

Thanks to the wavelength of 1064 nm in a fiber laser, a very small laser point is created, resulting in high precision for engraving and marking. This wavelength is 10 times smaller than that of a CO2 laser (10.6 µm), which means the fiber laser has a much smaller spot size. This allows even the finest details to be engraved effortlessly with extremely high precision and resolution.

Maintenance free

Cliche laser engraving and marking machines are virtually maintenance-free. In combination with the long lifespan and high engraving speed, these types of machines are extremely suitable for use in almost any working environment.


The MetaQuip desktop cliche laser works with a laser source that scans over the workpiece through an XY mirror in the laser head. This is the only moving part in the machine which ensures reliability and a long lifespan. Depending on the height of your workpiece, you manually set the focus height of the laser head. The control is done with a computer or laptop on which the laser software is installed. We can also supply these if desired.


Metal: silver, gold, titanium, stainless steel, aluminum, alloys and a large number of other metals.
Number of plastics

laser software

MetaQuip cliché laser engraving machines are easy to operate and control with the supplied laser software.
With this software you can make your own design, enter text or import a vector design (logo) from other design packages such as Solidworks, Adobe Illustrator or other (vector) design programs.
The software supports importing of graphic image formats such as Coreldraw, AutoCAD, Photoshop and AI, PLT, PCX, DXF, BMP, SHX or TTF.
The laser software comes with a Dutch manual or our EzCAD course.

Lightburn for cliché fiber laser
Optionally, we also offer Lightburn for cliché engraving lasers. This software was created by ex-Apple employees and is super user-friendly. The advantage is that it is also available for Mac and Linux. More information.

Industrial air filter

When working with cliché lasers, toxic gases and small (metal) dust particles may be released, depending on the material to be engraved. It is important for your health not to inhale these! MetaQuip therefore supplies a certified one as standard industrial air extraction along. In addition to preventing possible health problems, the extraction also prevents these (electrically conductive) dust particles from contaminating your fiber laser machine, which benefits the lifespan of the machine.
