Introduction about CNC Laser Engraving Machine
A laser engraver or laser cutter is a laser engraving machine with CNC (Computer Numerical Control) that use laser beam to engrave or cut patterns, pictures, signs, letters,logos on 2D/3D surface; while the laser engraving is a process that vaporizes the layers from the surface of the materials into fumes through the heat energy generated by laser to engrave permanent, deep marks.

Benefits to Use Laser Engraver
1. Laser Engraving Machines Are Versatile
From large-scale manufacturing to small shops,from engraving hobbyists to professional sculptors, laser engraver has increasingly become the first choice for engraving, because of its wide application. It can not only engrave various materials, such as wood, acrylic, metal, etc. but also can perform different operations depending on how the user or operator configures their settings, like laser cutting, engraving, marking, and even laser etching.
2. Laser CNC Router Engravers Are Precise
Based on computer numerically controlled (CNC), the processing accuracy of the laser engraving machine can reach 0.02mm, and it can perform high-speed engraving and cutting according to the image pattern designed by the computer.
3. Laser Cutting Machines Are Safe and Reliable
Compared with mechanical engraver, laser engraving machines incising marks by the laser beam hitting localized areas with massive levels of energy to sublimate the material surface. There’s no direct contact between the material and the laser cutter, reducing the likelihood of material contamination and an accidental marking.
4. CNC Laser Engravers Are Cost Saving
Since the diameter of the laser beam is generally less than 0.5mm and the less heat generated during operating compared to mechanical cutting, the cutting process can reduce the misshapen and deformed of the materials. What’s more, laser CNC engraver outperforms its industrial counterpart--computerized engraving for saving the time and labor needed to set up an engraving job.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is There Some Engraving Advice on Solid Wood?
It is recommended to wet the wood with water first before using a CNC laser engraver to carve solid wood materials or you can use something to block the material, because it will generate some sawdust particles during engraving, which will cough after contact. After getting wet, the carved wood pellets are moist and do not float easily, which will not cause some unnecessary problems.
2. How to Laser Carve acrylic?
1. Make sure your acrylic material is devoid of scratches and cracks at first.
2. Set a lower resolution about 300DPI and change the black in the graphics to 80% black for getting a better engraving results;
3. Focus the laser beam on the acrylic, set the power to 25% – 50% and the speed at 350mm/min;
4. Lay a damp paper towel over the acrylic or apply a thin layer of soap to the area to be engraved for dissipating heat,and then start your business.
5. Once the process is done, let the acrylic cool down then remove the melted acrylic residue using soap and water.
3. How to Maintain CNC Laser Engraving Machine？
Be sure to check the lens and clean it if necessary after daily working, or it will affect the accuracy of engraving and cutting-- because the top lens and mirror are right above the laser beam that means they are exposed to a lot of dirt, fumes, smoke and debris.
Like any machine that is used frequently, the vents, table tray and exhaust port of laser engraving machines, which might get clogged with dust and other materials, need to be cleaned for the engraver to work properly.
CNC laser engravers have increasingly met the needs of the public. Hope you will meet the most suitable one as soon as possible!
