What you should know about laser engraving.
Would you like to learn more about laser engravers before making an investment? Find out everything you need to know about laser engraving in this guide.
For the user, laser engraving is as simple as printing. In technical terms, the laser beam heats the material, causing it to vaporize, melt or burn.
CO2 laser systems are mainly suitable for processing non-metallic materials, such as wood, acrylic, glass, and paper. Fiber lasers are best for metal marking and high-contrast plastic marking.
The optimal laser power depends largely on which application you perform most often.
Advantages of laser engraving compared to mechanical engraving and digital printing.
Laser engraving, mechanical engraving and digital printing are different methods of labeling or marking materials such as metal, plastic, wood and glass. Laser engraving uses a laser beam to vaporize the material, thereby creating a permanent marking. Mechanical engraving uses a tool to cut or score the material to create the engraving. Digital printing involves printing a digital image directly onto the material. Choosing the right technology depends on the specific requirements and the desired results.
How to buy the right laser machine?
What factors must be considered when choosing a laser engraver? The following criteria are crucial for choosing the right laser system.

Reliable technical service
Wondering which laser system is right for you?
This exclusive eBook provides answers to all the questions that come up before buying a laser machine. They will serve as a basis for deciding which laser is right for you.
How can your company benefit from the laser engraver?
Thanks to process-optimized workflows, a wide range of materials can be engraved in high quality without the need for any time-consuming template-making or onerous pre- or post-processing. This enables you to work more efficiently, increase productivity and at the same time reduce costs and improve your brand image.
Calculate prices and increase profits
Laser engraving means that you can increase the price of personalized products many times over compared to the original item. End consumers are generally willing to pay more for products with a personal touch. In most cases, it’s possible to charge 5 to 10 times more than you would for a standard product. Both single items and larger orders can be economically processed with a laser machine. For larger quantities, it is helpful to work with templates so that you can engrave several parts in one operation, thus saving time.
High power facilitates enormous flexibility
The recommended laser power depends on the individual application. If the laser is to be used primarily for engraving, you will achieve excellent results with laser powers between 30 and 120 watts. For laser cutting and high speed applications, we recommend using laser power of more than 80 watts. The maximum laser power affects both the quality of your products and the working time. For example, if you engrave anodized aluminum at 80 watts compared to 30 watts it’s more than twice as fast at 80 watts.
While you can regulate the laser power via the software, the maximum power output depends on the hardware. Therefore, the following applies: A high-powered laser machine offers more flexibility since you can use it to process many different materials.
|Material||Recommended laser power (watts)|
|Engrave||Engrave and cut|
|MDF (6 mm)||40||60|
|Plastic sheets (1,6 mm)||40||40|
