Atomstack laser engraving machines and CNC engraving machines are two types of CNC machine tools that are very common in modern manufacturing. Although they can all be engraved, their working principles, application ranges, advantages and disadvantages are all different. This article will start with the basic concepts of laser engraving machines and CNC engraving machines, analyze their differences and characteristics, and look forward to their application fields and future development trends.
The Basic Concept Of Laser Engraving Machine And Cnc Engraving Machine
1. Laser engraving machine
The Atomstack S20 Pro laser engraver is a device that uses a laser beam for surface engraving. It is mainly composed of laser beam, lens, controller, gas injection system, etc. It can engrave metal, non-metal, stone, glass and other materials. The laser engraving machine controls the cutting depth and shape by adjusting the power, speed, frequency and other parameters of the laser beam to achieve high-precision and high-efficiency processing.
2. CNC engraving machine
A CNC engraving machine is a device that uses computer numerical control technology to engrave the surface of an object. It is mainly composed of a frame, a workbench, a motor, a controller, etc., and can be used for processing various materials such as metal, non-metal, and wood. Compared with laser engraving machines, CNC engraving machines can perform three-dimensional engraving, which can better show the curve and shape of objects.
The Difference Between Laser Engraving Machine And Cnc Engraving Machine
Although both Atomstack S30 Pro laser engraving machine and CNC engraving machine can realize engraving on the surface of objects, they have obvious differences in the following aspects:
1. The working principle is different
The working principle of the laser engraving machine is to evaporate or dissolve the surface of the object through a high-energy laser beam to realize the engraving process on the surface of the object. The CNC engraving machine cuts the material on the surface of the object through a motor-driven tool to achieve engraving.
2. The scope of application is different
Laser engraving machine is suitable for the processing of metal, non-metal, stone, glass and other materials. It can engrave on the surface of materials with high hardness without causing additional damage to the materials. CNC engraving machines are suitable for processing soft materials such as wood, plastic, foam, etc., and cannot be engraved on materials with higher hardness.
3. Accuracy and speed
Laser engraver can achieve higher processing accuracy and speed, because the diameter of the laser beam can be adjusted to a very small size, which can engrave finer materials. Therefore, laser engraving machines are usually used in industrial production that requires high precision and high speed. The processing accuracy and speed of CNC engraving machine are relatively low, and its processing cost is cheaper, so it is more suitable for the production of family handicrafts.
4. The software control system is different
The control system of the laser engraving machine uses laser cutting software, and it needs to be used together with drawing software such as CAD and CAM to realize the control of the engraving process. The control system of CNC engraving machine controls the processing process through special controller software.
Application Field Of Laser Engraving Machine And Cnc Engraving Machine
1. Application field of laser engraving machine
Ortur Laser Master 3 laser engraving machine has been widely used in industrial production and manufacturing, such as electronics, automobiles, aerospace, toys and other fields, which can achieve high-precision and high-efficiency engraving processing while maintaining the original material Quality and texture. In the field of personal consumption, laser engraving machines are also used in DIY engraving, seal making, tableware making, gift customization, etc.
2. Application field of CNC engraving machine
CNC engraving machine is suitable for home handicraft production, wood carving, toys, advertising boards and other fields. Since the cost of CNC engraving machines is lower than that of laser engraving machines, it is more suitable for personal DIY production and small-scale processing.
4. Future development trend
With the continuous upgrading and development of the manufacturing industry, the application range of laser engraving machines and CNC engraving machines will become more and more extensive. In the future, with the advancement of technology, these two machines will be more used in industrial production and personal DIY fields. The common development trend is: higher precision, more efficient processing, more diverse material processing capabilities, and more convenient operation and management. In addition, with the digital transformation of the manufacturing industry, the improvement of human-computer interaction and automation in the process of processing will also become a key development direction.
In a word, LaserPecker 3 laser engraving machine and CNC engraving machine are widely used in modern manufacturing industry, and there are differences in their working principle, scope of application and precision. In the future development, the application range and technical level of these two CNC machine tools will continue to improve and expand, bringing more development opportunities and changes to the manufacturing industry.
