Laser engraving and cutting, the process is very simple, as the use of computers and printers to print on paper. You can use in Win98 / Win2000 / WinXP environment variety of graphics processing software, such as CorelDraw and other design, scanning graphics, vector graphics and a variety of CAD files can easily "print" to the engraving machine. The only difference is, print the toner to the paper coating, and laser engraving is over almost all of the incident laser material wood, acrylic, plastic plates, metal plates, stone and other.
Laser engraving by engraving mode can be divided into lattice vector cutting and engraving:
◆ lattice carving
Engraving resembles high-resolution dot matrix printing. Laser head from side to side, each carving out a series of points of a line, then the laser head moves up and down while carving out a number of lines, constituting the final full-page image or text. Graphics, text and vector graphics can be used to scan a dot engraving.
◆ Vector Cutting
And the dot engraving, vector graphic cut in the outer contour line for. We usually use this model in wood, acrylic, paper and other materials through the cut, and we can operate in a variety of marking material surface.
A performance engraving machine, mainly by engraving speed, strength and carving spot size is determined.
◆ Engraving speed
Engraving speed refers to the speed of movement of the laser head is usually represented by IPS (inches / wonderful). Bring high-speed production efficiency. Speed is also used to control the depth of cut for a particular laser intensity, the slower the speed, the depth of cutting or carving the greater. You can use the engraving machine panel regulating speed, you can also use the computer's printer driver to adjust. In the range of 1% to 100%, adjustment is 1%. Advanced motion control system allows you to tell the carving, the carving hyperfine still get quality.
◆ carving strength
Carving strength refers to the strength of the material strikes the surface of the laser. For specific engraving speed, intensity, the greater the depth of cutting or carving the greater. You can use the engraving machine panel to adjust the intensity, can also use the computer's printer driver to adjust. In the range of 1% to 100%, adjustment is 1%. The greater the intensity, the greater the equivalent speed, depth of cut more deeply.
◆ spot size
Beam spot size can be used to adjust the lens of different focal lengths. Small spot lens for high resolution engraving. Carving large spot lens for lower resolution, but for vector cutting, it is the best option. Standard configuration of the new device is 2.0-inch lens. Its spot size in the middle, for various occasions.
Usually engraving machine can engrave the following materials: wood, plexiglass, metal plates, glass, stone, crystal, paper, color plates, aluminum, leather, resin, spray metal.
