What Is The Difference Between LaserPecker 2 and LaserPecker 3?

Although LaserPecker offers relatively few models, its high price range may make many potential buyers hesitant when deciding to invest in one. After all, buying can be a big commitment, and it can be hard to change course once a choice is made.

Even when buyers consider adding a few hundred dollars to their budget, it can be challenging to determine whether the extra cost is ultimately worth it. As a result, there have been many discussions on the site about which laser engravers offer the best value in two of our most popular products, the LP2 and LP3, and whether they are worth buying.

Let me briefly introduce the main features of these two models. The LaserPecker 2 uses diode laser technology utilizing the latest compressed spot technology with a wavelength of 450nm. It's great for engraving on wood, leather, and some types of metal, but bare metal requires additional prep. To turn a diode laser into a stainless steel engraver, you need laser bond spraying. Simply spray on the adhesive marker and engrave as usual.

The LaserPecker 3, on the other hand, uses infrared laser technology with a wavelength of 1064nm and is designed for metal, plastic and leather engraving. If metal or plastic engraving meets most of your needs, then we wholeheartedly recommend the LP3 model.

To assist in this decision-making process, we would like to highlight the main differences between the two machines in terms of parameters and applicable materials. By reviewing these distinctions, we hope customers will be able to make an informed choice that meets their needs.

However, if you are interested in engraving metal, leather and plastic materials, don't miss the LaserPecker 3. The machine can be perfectly applied in different industries such as jewelry, medical, automotive, aviation and energy.
