What is the difference and commonality between laser engraving machine and laser cutting machine
? Can laser engraving machine be used for cutting, or can laser cutting machine be used for engraving? Many new customers still have a lot of doubts about the difference between laser engraving machine and laser cutting machine.
Let's look at difference between laser engraving machine and laser cutting machine.
Difference 1: Laser power
Laser cutting machine for metal needs to reach kilowatt high power,but the power of laser engraving machine is generally less than 130W. The spot will increase as the power, which makes the engraving effect not precise enough.
Difference 2: Working format
Laser cutting machine has a large format working size, and the laser engraving machine has a relatively small format working size. Why does the laser engraving machine has a smaller format? Because the CO2 laser will attenuate optical path as the moving distance of the laser head increases. which will case bad effect.
The commonality of laser cutting machines and laser engraving machines
Both laser cutting machine and laser engraving machine use a laser to generate laser beam to irradiated onto the surface of the material to cause the material to reach a melting point to be vaporized. In some cases, the laser cutter can be used for both cutting and engraving.
