Do you want to find laser engraving machine, carving and cutting wood, acrylic resin, plastic, marble and so on? But we don’t know much about the principle and operation of laser cutting machine. The following will teach you the way to get on quickly.
First ,let us know the basic knowledge of laser engraving machine.
Laser Source: CO2 laser source, 30W-150W
Laser Engraving Materials: Wood, acrylic, plastic, glass, leather, corian, fabric, coated metals, anodized aluminum, ceramics, mylar, pressboard and more.
Laser Cutting Materials: Wood, acrylic, plastic, delrin, cloth, leather, melamine, paper, rubber, veneer, cork and more.
The Advantages of CO2 Laser Engraving:
The laser uses a beam of light as the engraving tool, so no part of the machinery actually touches the material being engraved.
You don’t need a special system to hold down your engraving material, and there are less consumables with a laser engraving machine.
Laser engraving produces a permanent, crisp, highly detailed mark, engraving images at up to 1200 dots per inch.
Then,how to use?
Attached to your computer just like a printer, the laser engraving machine will cut designs you create in most graphic software programs. Set up your page size to the size of the piece you are engraving, create your image, and print it to the laser – it will even cut many of the materials with the same system!
The best way to describe how our lasers work is to compare the system to your printer. Using similar technology, we take the images you typically print to paper, but instead we fire a CO2 laser beam that engraves and cuts your design on a wide variety of materials.
How to make an Image to laser engraving?
1. Start by scanning or importing your image.
2. Import your image into CorelDRAW or a similar design program. Set your page size to the size of the piece you are engraving.
3. Convert the photo to grayscale. Since we are engraving on anodized aluminum for this example, we have inverted the image.
4. Configure the laser’s speed and power, using the suggested settings in the owner’s manual, then send the print job to the laser system for engraving.
5. Complete by choosing your print job from the laser menu and pushing the go button for engraving to begin.
6. Your work is done! With these few, simple steps, you have created a stunning engraving that will last a lifetime!
