What Is A Laser Engraver?
Laser engraving machine is also called cnc laser engraver, laser marking machine, etc, is a kind of high precision cnc machine tools integrating mechanical, optical and electrical systems, it takes laser source as the processing medium,
Laser engraver, also known as cnc laser engraver, laser engraving machine, is one kind of laser equipment integrating mechanical, optical and electrical systems, it takes laser source, including Fiber laser, CO2 laser and UV laser, as the processing medium to engrave or etch 2D/3D drawing on the surface of different kinds of metal and non-metal materials, when working, the high density laser beam which is generated by laser source is emit onto the surface of workpiece to melt and vaporize the processed material instantaneously under laser engraving irradiation can enable laser engraving to achieve the purpose of processing.
How Many Types of Laser Engraver?
Laser marking machine can be divided into different groups in terms of laser source, including fiber laser engraver, co2 laser engraver, uv laser engraver; Laser engraving machines can be roughly divided into non-metal laser engraving machines and metal laser engraving machines. The non-metal engraving machine can be divided into CO2 glass tube laser engraving machine and metal RF tube laser engraving machine, whiles the metal laser engraving machine can be divided into fiber laser marking machine and metal fiber laser engraving machine.

How It Works
What Are the Advantages and Benefits of Laser Engraving?
The advantages of laser engraving machine are summarized as follows:
(1).Wide range: can process a variety of non-metallic materials and metal materials. And the price is low!
(2).Safe and reliable: Non-contact processing is adopted, which will not cause mechanical extrusion or mechanical stress on the material. No "knife marks", does not damage the surface of the processed parts; will not deform the material;
(3).Accurate and meticulous: the processing accuracy can reach 0.02mm;
(4).Eco-friendly: The diameter of the light beam and light spot is small, generally less than 0.5mm; cutting processing saves materials, safety and hygiene;
(5).Consistent effect: ensure that the processing effect of the same batch is completely consistent.
(6).High-speed and fast: high-speed engraving and cutting can be performed immediately according to the pattern output by the computer.
(7).Low cost: not limited by the number of processing, laser processing is cheaper for small batch processing services.
How to Choose A Suitable Fiber Laser Engraver Machine?
There are various products of laser engraving machines on the market, which have quite different working performance, application and price, it is not easy job to decide the very suitable laser engraver machine especially for new comer in the field, so how to choose the right laser engraver machine?
1) On what material to sculpt
According to the difference in laser generation, laser engraving machines can be roughly divided into YAG and CO2. The former is mainly for the application of metal products, and the latter is mainly non-metallic. The current laser equipment on the market is mostly the latter.
2) Product content to be processed
Laser equipment can be roughly divided into three types of engraving, cutting and marking in different ways of use. Basically, some are special machines, and some have multiple functions. They should be selected according to the main needs.
3) Product size to be processed
That is, the choice of the size of the laser engraving machine, but it should be noted that a large machine format is not necessarily good, because large-format equipment is of course more expensive, and some poor-quality machinery and equipment have average laser output at various points on the large format The degree of instability makes the engraving products of the same table vary in depth, so it is correct to choose the most appropriate format. 4) Laser tube power
Depending on the material and content of the engraving. The appropriate wattage of the laser tube should be selected. For example, the engraving of acrylic and two-color plates does not require too much laser tube power, but for example, wood and stone carving and cutting of any material It may require a laser tube with a larger power in order to receive more results with less effort.
In a short period of time, more products can be produced at a faster speed to create higher profits, so the speed is often the key to receiving orders and making money. The speed of the American Epilog laser equipment is up to 304.8cm /Second, the lowest speed is also 203.2cm/second, which is far different from the average product on the market of only 106cm/second.
The biggest difference between laser engraving and traditional engraving equipment and manual engraving is high accuracy. At present, only Epilog laser equipment in the United States reaches 1200 dpi, other imported brands and a few domestic products can reach 1000 dpi, and the accuracy of some domestic equipment is still very low.
7) After-sales maintenance service
The after-sales maintenance service of machinery and equipment is very important, but people often fall into a wrong myth. Everyone always thinks that domestic machinery is produced domestically, so parts are quickly and conveniently obtained, but it is unknown that imported machinery and equipment of good quality are not easy to damage Therefore, there is no need for frequent maintenance. On the contrary, poor-quality machines need special attention because they are often damaged.
