How Schools Are Utilizing Laser Machines Today

Laser machines are already being used in educational settings across the country. Students in Kansas are utilizing the laser engraving machines in education to engrave footballs for homecoming and award medals for the cross country team. In Pennsylvania they engrave tiles to make into coasters as a fundraiser. In Colorado, students in the robotics club use the laser engraver to cut wooden models and etch logos into the bodies of their robots. A laser engraving and cutting machine can be used in art, science, and industrial classrooms and add numerous options to boost your curriculum. The skills that students learn and develop when operating a laser can help them excel in fast growing fields and industries that span the gamut.

Why AP Lazer?

First and foremost, as previously mentioned, AP Lazer’s laser machines offer the greatest freedom so that your students can get the most use out of it. Our patented open architecture features a removable laser top which allows the operator to use the laser machine in a variety of configurations. Keep the laser top on its home base and it functions like a traditional ‘boxed-up’ laser machine, engraving small items such as trophies and awards. Remove the top from the home base and place it on the Utility Carriage, and the operator can then roll large, bulky objects directly beneath the laser head for engraving or cutting. The equipped EZ Leveling Wheels allow one to adjust the four corners of the machine independently. Utilizing this feature also makes it possible to place the removable top directly onto any flat surface such as wood or granite flooring and engrave directly on the surface.
