The moving mass is constant, so dynamics are not affected by varying size of the workpiece. Flying optics machines are the fastest type, which is advantageous when cutting thinner workpieces. HACO fiber laser cutting machine with an integrated loading and unloading system.
Our in-house service team has carefully inspected and refurbished our used machines to ensure quality and value to your shop. Many of our used machines also come with factory-certified warranties. See our current list of used laser cutting systems for sale here.
Shandong Leiming Laser is committed to the development, manufacture and sales of fiber laser cutting machines. As the “darling” of metal processing in the new era, the laser cutting machine can be said to be the product of modern science and technology. Laguna Tools’ CO2 laser cutting machines include working area options of 24″ x 40″, 36″ x 52″. We offer CO2 lasers with a locating accuracy of +.01 mm, as well as cutting speeds of 236 in/min and engraving speeds of 700 in/min. This allows you to create highly precise engravings in a short amount of time.
Realistically there is no one right or wrong engraving machine on the list. You may need something with serious cutting power while others might want something as a hobby device, or to help their up and coming Etsy store. There’s no shortage of engraving and cutting machines on the market. And with such an expansive price point it’s tricky to pick one over others. After all, you can get some impressive devices at the top of the price point.
There’s always a market for something compact and efficient, especially for the hobbyists out there. Unfortunately, it can’t, but then again you could say the same for a number of the other entries on this list! If you want something that cuts organics nicely but not to the highest possible precision then go for it. I’d recommend this as a training setup in shops looking to expand, or for the keen hobbyist. There’s always a time and a place for these types of devices, you just need to have realistic expectations of what they can do.
We offer unparalleled customer care in the world of laser cutting. We provide free email customer assistance for any issue regarding warranty work on the machine and basic troubleshooting with instructions and videos for the first year. We can also offer remote support to those who need guidance while installing their devices during the first 30 days.
Older rules of thumb that have been used for decades for CO2 lasers do not necessarily translate to newer machines. Often, they assume that their existing dust collector can simply be hooked up to the new machine. Manufacturers should also reevaluate dust collection equipment if they are moving to a laser with higher wattage. One shop we were working with developed problems with their laser cutters shortly after moving from a 4 kW laser to a 6 kW laser. A dust collector with a lower air-to-cloth ratio solved the problem. The products cover the full power series of fiber laser cutting series, laser processing and welding equipment and cleaning equipment, etc.
CNC Laser Cutting has many advantages over Flame, Plasma, and Waterjet Cutting methods. As the Laser’s heat application is tightly focused, it requires less power and the material’s heat-affected zone is reduced. Many high-end industrial Laser Cutting machines are accurate to 10 micrometers and have a repeatability of 5 micrometers. CNC Lasers can affordably cut and etch a wide variety of materials, even the non-metallic materials that typically cannot be cut by Flame or Plasma processes. CO₂ and YAG Lasers are similar in construction but are used differently. C0₂ Lasers with lower power levels are used for engraving, while ones with higher power levels are used in industrial applications for welding and cutting because of their reasonably low price.
