What is the difference between a laser cutter and a laser engraver?

laser engraver

First of all, both should be electrical. As far as I know,laserpecker 2 laser engraver many people always mistake CNC engraving machine and laser engraving machine as one thing. In fact, there is a big difference between the two, and with the development of the times, the difference is becoming more and more obvious, with the continuous maturity of laser technology, the advantages over the traditional computerized engraving are becoming more and more obvious. The following is mainly from the dot matrix engraving, vector cutting, engraving speed, engraving intensity, spot size, engraving materials and other aspects of the two comparisons.

1. engraving intensity: engraving intensity refers to the intensity of laser irradiation to the surface of the material. For a given engraving speed, the greater the intensity, the greater the depth of cut or engraving. You can adjust the intensity using the engraver panel or your computer's print driver.laser pecker 4 The adjustment is 1% in the range of 1% to %. The higher the intensity, the faster the speed. The depth of cut is also deeper.

2. Engraving speed: first of all, the difference between CNC engraving machine and laser engraving machine engraving speed,laser pecker pro engraving speed refers to the speed of the laser head movement, usually expressed in IPS (inches / second), high speed to bring high production efficiency. Speed is also used to control the depth of cut, the slower the speed the greater the depth of cut or engraving for a given laser intensity. The speed can be adjusted using the engraver panel or by using the computer's print driver. The adjustment is 1% in the range of 1% to %. The advanced motion control system of the Hummer machine allows you to get super fine engraving quality at high speed engraving.

3. spot size: In fact, CNC engraving machines and laser engraving machines have different laser beam spot sizes. Adjustable lenses with different focal lengths. Small spot lens for high resolution engraving. Lens with large spot for lower resolution engraving, but for vector cutting it is the best choice. The new unit comes standard with a 2.0-inch lens. It has a spot size in the middle, suitable for a variety of occasions.

4. Spot Engraving: Spot engraving is exactly the same as HD spot printing. The laser head swings left and right, each time carving a line composed of a series of dots, and then the laser head moves up and down at the same time to carve multiple lines, and ultimately constitute a full-page image or text. Scanned graphics, text and vector graphics can use dot matrix engraving.

5. Vector Cutting: Unlike dot-matrix engraving, vector cutting is done on the outer contour of the graphic. We usually use this mode to cut through materials such as wood, acrylic, paper, etc. We can also mark the surface of various materials.

6. can be engraved materials: wood products, plexiglass, metal plate, glass, stone, crystal, corian, paper, two-color plate, aluminum oxide, leather, resin, spray metal.
