we offer you an opportunity to start a laser cutting/engravin
A quite inexpensive but still a very good choice is a laser engraver 2.1 W DIY
To laser engrave or laser cut you don’t need special knowledge or skills. Laser cutting and engraving are very simple.
Additionally, we tell in details how to operate the laser and engraver.
You can engrave wood, leather, stone, plastic, acrylic, glass, metal. We deal with a mechanical method, called “laser engraving”.
As the process of engraving is automatic, you can draw a simple image or an interesting individual pattern for a customer, or offer a selection of ready image samples for engraving.
Thanks to the laser technology, many businesses already provide services for engraving and cutting using their own material or the material of the customer. The following materials have been successfully tested: paper, cardboard, plywood, wood, foil, plastic, acrylic, glass, leather, rubber, aluminum.
Safety precautions when working with the laser:
Lasers also give users other opportunities. By means of laser cutting you can create stencils for etching or welding. Thus, using a 3.5 W Endurance L-cheapo laser with a linear velocity of 3 cm/min., we were able to cut a stencil pattern on a PVC sample, 5 mm thick,
When laser cutting, provide forced removal of combustion products, and you will be able to cut the plywood up to 4 mm thick. Cut out stencils, make printed circuit boards, and etch aluminum. Your customers will be satisfied!
Lasers can be mounted on any 3D printers and CNC machines, as well as on constructors, such as: a DIY iMakeBlock plotter XY 2.0 kit.
Gcode is the primary programming language for this kind of devices. Geeks assemble their own devices, using stepper motors (RepRap). The Endurance L-cheapo laser body has 4 threaded holes, so it can be easily mounted on any CNC device. We successfully install a laser to 3D printers (BFB3DTouch, Wanhao Duplicator i3, Prusa) and DIY constructors (e.g., MakeBlock).
