Laser power: With increased power comes increased flexibility
The most important thing to consider when choosing the laser power of your laser system is the application that you run most frequently with the laser. If you are primarily using your laser system for engraving, laser power between 25 and 80 watts will achieve great results. For laser cutting or for very high-speed applications, laser power of more than 80 watts is recommended. The type of material used will help to determine what laser power will be most efficient. E.g. Engraving paper typically requires less power than engraving wood. Low power can be used to create a shallow, uniform engraving on acrylic. When processing engraving materials, such as TroLase, higher power means faster work.
Trotec software can easily manipulate the laser power. However, the hardware determines the maximum power. Consider this: The higher the laser power, the greater flexibility and materials you will be able to process.
