Features to look for in a large format laser system

Laser Dave will also provide a comparison of lasers and machanical engraving machines, and give an overview of features to look for in a large format laser system, including

  • Broad system capabilities.  If you can cut and engrave a wide range of materials such as acrylics, wood, textiles, thin films and foils, and cardboard, you will have the freedom to reach new markets and adapt to changing market needs.
  • Safety.  If the beam path is fully enclosed, then the laser machine is a safety class 2 laser solution, eliminating the need for special safety measures.
  • Low maintenance design. A lower maintenance design, especially if it can protect sensitive system-critical components, will improve efficiency, extend product longevity, and improve processing results.  
  • Features that boost efficiency. These might include high-speed processing capabilities, ergonomic design, and minimal post-processing requirements. 
  • The ability to produce fine details. Precision processing capabilities increase product value and selling prices, and allow you to meet a wider range of customer needs. Good vision registration software, for example, can allow you create more interesting and detailed product designs and cut printed signs, displays, and POS materials to exact specifications with minimal scrap and rework.
