08 Jan HPC Highlights of 2019
2019 was an amazing year at HPC Laser. We sold a record number of machines, both throughout the UK and overseas to educational organisations, design businesses, sign makers, general industrial customers and hobbyists.
We shipped to a number of countries for the first time, including the Falkland Islands.
That being said we thought we’d highlight a few moments from the year.
We kicked off the year at Trophex and showed off the precision of the 60W upgraded LS6840 to create this stunning leather engraving. We’ll be back at Trophex this month demonstrating our machines, offering exclusive deals and chances to win!
Sometimes we have to use unorthodox methods of delivery, like this one in February that proves the importance of an accurate pre-delivery assessment!
These assessments mean each and every time we get to site, we know what to expect and our engineer won’t coming away from a failed installation.
Anita & Paul Collier shared this stunning piece with us!
A piece of plywood transformed into this brilliant celebration wreath using a HPC CO2 Laser Cutter. The design can be personalised according to the occasion!
April saw us attend Sign & Digital at the NEC. We’ll be returning later this year so keep your eyes peeled for details!
Our 20W Fibre Engraver made very light work of some aluminium carburettor chokes:
Chris and Pawel from our engineering team ran the scenic Ravenscar Coastal Half Marathon, taking in the sights around Robin Hood’s Bay between Whitby and Scarborough.
We attended the NEC once more for Makers Central, an event designed to unite makers, creators, hobbyists and artists from all over the world.
We kicked off our summer by heading to London for an Adidas product launch where we personalised brand new footwear.
We saw how fast a HPC Fibre Engraving Machine could really mark a serial number on tool steel:
We continued the summer in style, going old-school with this 60’s VW split screen. If you want to see more designs like this be sure to follow our Instagram page.
Christine at Red Sky Gifts showed us how laser engraving can be incorporated into different art forms with this mixed media canvas. Using MDF, cardboard, acrylic paints, glues amongst other materials, this is one of the best examples we’ve seen of blurring the lines between different styles of art with a laser machine.
This large 1.5kw flatbed LS3015 Fibre Metal Cutter was delivered and installed for a very satisfied client in Leeds. These Fibre Laser Cutters are available with a range of options, from safety enclosures, to laser powers from 500W to 6kW.
We also launched the brand new HPC Laser website which thousands of you have visited!
This compact set up engaged visitors in Event City, Manchester at the Northern Manufacturing & Electronics show, displaying and demonstrating the capabilities of the LS6090 CO2 Laser Cutter and LS110 Fiber Engraver.
We couldn’t resist creating a Halloween mascot so we cut some spare 3mm clear acrylic to make this.
This was the month we decided to showcase customer designs:

Keep your entries coming as we’ll be showcasing your designs every month!
To celebrate the launch of our brand new website we held a competition to win a UK Hip Flasks set, which Hilary won and came to collect in November.
You submitted your Christmas designs, like this one by Gemma Barlow!
December saw one of the busiest and best periods of the year at HPC, we launched our Trustpilot and achieved an ‘Excellent’ rating and also gave away this hamper to the Christmas competition winner!
