Additional assistance is available at $40 an hour remotely and $80 an hour on-site plus half travel. Installing the laser cutter is an extra service that averages around $200. Our mirror system inside the lightweight robot guides the light onto the cutting head. The individual mirrors are actively cooled, and precisely guide the beam through all axes. There is no need for a moving light guide cable, which makes the laser cutting machine very streamline and lightweight.
The laser’s heat is amplified and guided through optics, which points the heat to the area of the workpiece that needs cutting. As opposed to the vector cutting technique, which cuts through the material, this process cuts the layer or top surface of the material only. This is whereby, using a different color, the image is engraved into the material. This is achieved by setting the laser cutting device to a lower power level. The machine unfolds very fine and detailed dots producing the desired design without having to perforate through the material. With the KKmoon 20W Desktop Laser Engraver, you can cut soft materials such as wood up to a maximum of 8-millimeter thickness.
Beam quality– When discussing CO2 laser cutters, the beam quality is often defined by a TEM or a 1/e square rating with TEM00 being a “perfect” beam; not necessarily to best beam mode for cutting plate. Which machine, fiber laser cutter or CO2 laser cutter, would make the most sense for your company? I submit that this choice is dictated by which machine makes your parts for less money; in some cases a lot less money. This article cannot define the costs to make your parts, but it can define the cost to make certain parts, and speaking with potential machine suppliers can help you get a handle on the cost to make your parts.
Our affordable financing programs with 0% down payment and 30-day hassle free return policy allow us to have the best deals for commercial, professional and industrial laser cutters and engravers. Additionally, it’s worth having a conversation as to how the laser might integrate into the company’s network. Some applications still remain better suited to CO2 lasers, such as applications that require good edge quality on thicker or specialized materials. Also, some manufacturers may feel comfortable with CO2 technology because they’ve used it for several years, and the company has in-house maintenance expertise. Every day, or after 8 hours of solid laser cutting, be sure to check the lens and clean it if necessary. The top lens and mirror are right above the laser beam which means they are exposed to a lot of dirt, fumes, smoke and debris.
The inclusion of an operating CD shows Voiern’s commitment to delivering good service. Voiern has specialized in laser technologies for over 12 years and takes pride in their integrity and customer relations. The WR3020 K-40 laser cutter is Voiern’s desktop laser cutter, which is a great option for its small size, affordability, and high power.
There was an occasion or two where the software threw out an error in Mandarin that I didn’t want to dismiss without a quick pass through Google Translate… but for the most part, it was solid, stable and fun to use. If you need to do something beyond what the free software can handle , Beam Studio can import JPGs, PNGs and SVGs. If you only need a certain area scanned (like, say, the top half of the work area, or the rough area around something you’ve already cut), fortunately, that’s an option. As with Delta, Flux is turning to Kickstarter for the launch of beamo. They sprinted past their goal of $25,000 pretty quickly, currently sitting at roughly $350,000 raised with a little over a week to go. The early-bird models are going for $849, with the company pinning the final MSRP at $1,500.
