How To Laser Engrave Metal

Laserpecker laser engraving machine is a high-precision, high-efficiency engraving machine, suitable for engraving metal and non-metal materials. It uses a laser beam to cut or engrave metal materials with very high precision and speed without unnecessary thermal damage to the material. So, how does a laser engraving machine engrave metal?

Which Metal Materials Are Laser Engraving Machines Suitable For?

Laser engravers are suitable for many metal materials, including stainless steel, copper, aluminum, brass, titanium, tungsten, iron, gold, and more. The effect of engraving metal with a laser engraver machine is related to the color of the panel and the type of metal. The same equipment may also be used to engrave more atmospheric metals, such as Pikachu.

How Does a Laser Engraving Machine Improve Thermal Damage To Metal Materials?

The LaserPecker 3 laser engraving machine generates heat during the engraving process. If the heat is not well controlled, it may cause unnecessary damage to the material. There are three solutions: control the power of the laser engraving machine; control the speed of the laser engraving machine; use a cooling system.

  1. Control the power of the laser engraving machine
    The higher the power of the laser engraving machines, the greater the heat generated when cutting metal, which will affect the quality of the material. Therefore, it is very critical to control the power of the laser engraving machine. As the power decreases, the heat generation will also decrease accordingly. However, for different types of metal materials, it is necessary to determine different initial power values, and then continuously adjust the values according to the actual situation.
  2. Control the speed of the laser engraving machine
    The faster the Laserpecker 2 laser engraver, the less heat it will generate. However, too fast speed will also affect the cutting quality and efficiency. Therefore, it is necessary to make a trade-off between quality and efficiency, and adopt an appropriate engraving speed.
  3. Use cooling system
    During the laser engraving process, it is necessary to provide stable cooling for the laser. This cooling can be water cooling or natural cooling. Water cooling is better than free cooling, but also requires more equipment costs.

Tool Selection For Laser Engraving Machines

Different types of metals require different types of knives, as this ensures that the quality of the engraving is not subject to excessive heat damage. Commonly used knives include carbide, laser knives and diamond knives. Carbide is a cobalt-based alloy that is common in metal cutting, while diamond knives are suitable for harder materials.

Advantages And Disadvantages Of Laser Engraving Machine

Laser engraving technology has the advantages of high precision, high efficiency, high speed, and no pollution. In addition, laser engraving only needs one machine to realize cutting and engraving of many different materials, saving equipment costs.

However, the TwoTrees TTS-55 laser engraver also has some disadvantages. It requires strict maintenance and care, requires very high operating skills and safety awareness. Therefore, it is best to be operated by professional technicians to ensure the normal operation and maintenance of the machine.

In Conclusion

In short, laser engraving technology is a very important engraving and cutting technology, which has been widely used in many fields. For those who want to use a laser engraver to engrave metal materials, they need to pay attention to the points mentioned above, and constantly adjust the technology in practice to obtain the best cutting effect.
