We know that choosing a suitable laser cutting machine may be difficult and depends on many factors. In this blog post, we will compare different series of CO2 laser engraving machines provided by Monportlaser. You can know more about what our laser engraving machine can achieve, the uses and functions of different laser engravers. We will provide you with some guidance.

What Is a Co2 Laser Engraving Machine?

A co2 laser engraving machine is a computer numerical control non-metallic laser engraving system that uses a Co2 laser tube to output a high-density laser beam for engraving and cutting.

Co2 laser engraving machine is used for wood, fabric, leather, acrylic, plastic, plexiglass, paper, wool, rubber, crystal, ceramic tile, jewelry, POM, bamboo, and more non-metallic materials. It is widely used in craft production, advertising, decoration, clothing, leather, toys, electronic appliances, computer embroidery and cutting, modeling, packaging and printing, paper products and other industries.             

The CO2 laser machine is equipped with a precision water-cooled Co2 laser generator, which can engrave on almost any non-metallic material surface. Non metallic laser engraving machines can also be used to cut many different materials. Using the rotary attachment, you can engrave any cylindrical object, such as cup, pen holder, musical instrument, etc. The Co2 laser engraving system supports a variety of graphic formats, such as BMP, PLT, HPGL, GIF, JPG, JPEG, DXF, AI, PDF,  etc. Co2 laser machine is equipped with Ruida control system of CorelDRAW, AutoCAD and more professional software. Co2 non-metallic laser engraving machine is compatible with win10, win8, win7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

How Does Co2 Laser Engraving Machine Work?

The Co2 laser generator uses the conversion between the vibration energy level and rotation energy level of Co2 molecules to generate a laser beam. The laser beam is transmitted and focused on the material surface, which makes the material irradiated by the high-energy laser beam evaporate rapidly and form pits. Use the computer to control the X-Y console, drive the laser head to move, and control the laser switch as needed. The image information generated by the software is stored in the computer in a certain way. When the information is read from the computer in sequence, the laser head scans back and forth from left to right, from top to bottom, and line by line along the scanning track, and forms an engraving pattern. Laser cutting can be realized by using a high-power laser. Turn it down for engraving and turn it up for cutting. The laser power level will also affect the engraving depth and cutting thickness.
