Our laser cutting & engraving machines offer the best value for money that you can buy

MaxLaser’s diverse range of laser cutters and engravers for sale in South Africa has made us the go-to provider of these fantastic machines. Whatever size your business is now, adding a laser cutter to your arsenal is guaranteed to help you reach new markets and bring in more customers.   

However, we do understand that for many companies, especially smaller businesses and start-ups, the upfront cost of a laser cutter can be prohibitive. This is where our innovative laser cutting machine finance offering can help. 

Depending on the model you choose, we offer either a 2- or 5-year finance option to make purchasing our laser cutting machines for sale in Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Johannesburg more affordable.

You also have the option to put down a lumpsum payment towards the model of your choice, if you wish, to reduce the amount of interest you pay or the duration of your loan. Please note that because MaxLaser is not a bank, the arrangement you have with us will essentially be a rent to own agreement.

Summary of our laser cutting machine finance option:

  • Rent to Own model 
  • Choose between a 2-year (24 months) or 5-year (60 months) term 
  • Option to put down a lumpsum deposit to reduce your monthly repayments 
  • The 2-year term is generally offered on our Flux hobby laser cutting machines in South Africa, and 5-year term on our Thunder laser machines, laser marking machines & UV printers
  • You will receive a monthly repayment breakdown before we draw up an official agreement

Choosing the best laser cutting machine for sale to fit your needs

The most important factors to consider when comparing laser cutting machines for sale in South Africa are as follows: 

  1. Application – will you be marking, engraving, or cutting with your machine? 
  2. The materials you want to work with – wood, acrylic, leather, rubber, cork to name a few. The laser cutting & engraving machines will be your best bet. If you looking to mark on metal then a Mopa or Fiber laser will do the trick.  
  3. Bed size – how large are the objects you’ll be working with, or do you want to be able to cut several objects at once?
  4. Power – Will the machine run for just a few minutes a day, or hours at a time?
