laser engraving machine can improve efficiency, the carved surface is smooth, rounded, it can carved quickly reduce the temperature of non-metal materials, to reduce the deformation of carved objects and internal stress; can be widely used for various non-metallic materials for fine carving areas.
Laser engravers can be divided into professional laser engraving machine, professional laser marking machine, professional laser cutter. Following advices maybe help to choose a laser engraver
But how can I choose the right laser machine, there are 5 steps for you reference
1) What is kind of materials will the machine engrave:
Generally, laser engraver can be divide into two kinds: YAG and CO2. The first one is special designed for metals engraving, the second one is for non-metal materials.
2) What kinds of application you want to get:
Engraving equipments including laser engraver, laser cutter, and laser marking machine. According to different application, some equipment is multifunctional while some are special engravers just for one function.
3) How much power do I need?
25-40 Watts –It is special for stamp carving and simple engraving and thin material cutting, not recommended for thick cutting or dual head applications.
40-60 Watts –Medium production power level for deeper, high speed engraving and slightly thick cutting operations. 60-80 Watts –High production power level provides increased throughput deep engraving and cutting.
100-180 Watts – Very high production power level that is ideal for heavy cutting and deep, higher throughput engraving. For example, if you want to cut acrylic of thickness of over 2cm (Include 2cm) or other thick material; you can choose high power lasers.
200 Watt – GSI, Imported from UK. It can cut at most 3mm iron and thick non-metals. It is very suitable for thin materials cutting.
500Watt – YAG. It can cut at most 8mm iron. Anyway, it can cut brass, aluminum, stainless steel, titanium and so on.
More profit can be realize in short time with high working speed. So speed is the important factor on whether you can get the orders and get the profits.
5) Other features:
Apart from above mentioned features, there are a couple of other things to remember when choosing engraving machines. Good mechanical design is also important for you; it makes your working more stable and convenient some optical device can extend machine’s application.
The information above hopefully is helpful to you and buys a right machine for you use. All in all, your detailed information will be helpful for us to suggest the best suitable laser engraver to you.
