Atomstack laser engraving machine has become one of the main tools for making personalized gifts, home decoration and other types of products. To achieve high-quality laser engraving effects, you need appropriate engraving parameters. This article will introduce how to choose the appropriate one from the following three aspects. parameters:
1. The Influence Of Engraved Item Material On Parameters
Different materials have different reaction characteristics, so it is necessary to select appropriate parameters according to the type of material. The following are some common materials and corresponding parameters:
Wood: Wood is generally easier to engrave, but different types of wood have different hardness, so it is necessary to adjust the power and speed parameters of the Atomstack S20 Pro laser engraving machine according to the hardness of the wood. In general, the power range of wood is about 40-80W, and the speed range is between 1000-1500mm/s.
Plastics: Plastics are more difficult to engrave, and some harder plastics will melt. Therefore, low power and appropriate speed need to be selected. Generally, the power range is around 10-30W, and the speed range is between 500-1000mm/s.
Leather: The engraving effect of leather is very good, but the thickness and hardness of the leather need to be considered, so that the power and speed parameters can be adjusted. Generally, the power range is between 30-60W, and the speed range is between 1000-1500mm/s.
Glass: Since glass is a fragile material, a lower power LaserPecker 3 laser engraving machine is required for engraving. If the power is too high, the glass may crack. Generally, the power range is between 5-10W, and the speed range is between 100-200mm/s.
Metal: Metal is a relatively difficult material to carve, but through the use of some skills, a certain degree of carving can be achieved. It should be noted that different metal types have different power requirements. Generally, the power range is between 30-100W, and the speed range is between 1000-2000mm/s.
Stone: The stone is relatively hard, so you need to choose a higher power Atomstack S30 Pro laser engraving machine for engraving. At the same time, pay attention to controlling the speed to ensure the depth and clarity of engraving. Generally, the power range is between 80-120W, and the speed range is between 500-1000mm/s.
2. The Influence Of The Engraving Position On The Parameters
Depth: If you want to depict a deep pattern, you need to choose a higher power and control the speed at the same time. While maintaining depth, pay attention to clarity.
Curve: In the part of engraving the curve, you need to choose a lower speed and a higher power, so as to ensure the smoothness and clarity of the curve.
Details: If you want to portray some detailed patterns, you need to choose a smaller power and an appropriate speed, so as to ensure the clarity of details.
3. The Influence Of The Characteristics Of The Equipment Itself On The Parameters
Focal length: Most laser engravers are equipped with a focal length adjustment device. By adjusting the focal length, the best focus position can be obtained, thereby improving the clarity and precision of engraving.
Dot pitch: The dot pitch refers to the distance between each point. The smaller the dot pitch, the higher the engraving accuracy, but it will also increase the engraving time. Therefore, it is necessary to select an appropriate dot pitch according to the requirements.
Through the introduction of the above three aspects, I believe that you have already understood how to choose the appropriate parameters, but in the actual carving, you need to pay attention to the following points:
1. First make a sample, test the effect, and adjust the parameters appropriately.
2. During the engraving process, observe the laser engraving effect and adjust the parameters in time to maintain the best effect.
3. The lens needs to be cleaned regularly to ensure the cutting quality.
4. Do not adjust the parameters casually, so as not to damage the equipment or cause potential safety hazards.
Summary: Selecting the appropriate parameters can make your engraving effect more beautiful and clear. By balancing and adjusting various factors, the personalized products produced will be more brilliant, and work efficiency and quality can also be improved.
