What is a CO2 Laser Machine?
CO2 Laser Cutter Engraving Machines are very popular amongst crafters, sign makers and other industries that process materials such as leather, card, acrylic, plywood, cloth etc with high accuracy and complexity.
make custom logos on acrylic, wood, paper, metals, plastics, and other materials. As standard, a CO2 Laser can only mark onto anodised, and coated metals, they will not cut. You would need a Metal/non-metal cutter that utilises oxygen as an assisting element to cut through thin metals.
A CO2 Laser uses a gas-filled glass tube and a number of glass mirrors, to fire a focused laser beam through the tube and down through the laser cutting head. Once here it exits the nozzle through the focus lens and hits the surface of your material.
The cutting depth and speeds are all controlled in our machines by a software interface, in our case Lightburn or RD Works. A very easy-to-use editor for producing laser-cut designs and controlling all aspects of the machine, from cutting speeds and powers to whether or not you want to raster engrave or just cut.
With a laser cutting machine, you are able to produce a wide array of products from laser engraved gifts to unique laser cut products, without ever having to outsource any of the work.
Our own range of CO2 laser machines comes in a wide variety of bed sizes and configurations from small desktop-styled machines up to high-capacity large-format machines.
