For beginner of the laser industry, maybe you have very limited laser knowledgy. In this article, we will introduce you the factors that should be considered before buying a laser machine.
First of all, you must have a a comprehensive understanding of your demand of the laser machine before purchasing. What is the main application, what to engrave, cut or mark with that machine? And how big or maximum size of the materials to be processed? And another very important thing to know is if you need to process metals, as that may decide the type of laser you must have, the most popular laser type include co2 laser which are good at processing nonmetal materials, and fiber laser machines are highly recommened for metal processing, accordingly the cost is higher.
Usually most laser machines are functional. Laser cutting, laser etching, laser engraving is just a couple of settings, so Rochase think you don’t have to buy specific machines for specific jobs when a single machine can do other jobs, as most Rochase laser machines are versatile.
Regularlly, mall laser machines are cheaper, well the disadvantage its processing area is smaller also the power maybe lower. That means the materials to be processed is also smaller, as the materials shouldn’t be larger than the working bed of the machine, and the laser might working slower than higher power lasers.
Except size, power, materials and application, other factors you may also need take into consideration is the exausting system, cooling method which may generate some noise and influnce your neighbours.
