This is because the 10,640nm wavelength is absorbed by a broader spectrum of non-metals, including wood, plywood, acrylic (all colors), foam, cardboard, leather, plastics, paper, fabric and rubber. It can also be used to engrave aluminum, brass, copper, ceramics, tungsten, chrome, painted metal, fiberglass, carbon fiber, nickel, plastics and other non-metals.
The Monport 40w laser cutter/engraver is easy to use and has a nice user interface with good graphics. It comes with a flat ventilated cutting board, and a built-in clamping system for repetitive work. It is also very quiet and has an exhaust fan which vents out the back.
Getting Started The laser uses a discharge tube that contains nitrogen and carbon dioxide, which are excited by a high voltage. When the CO2 molecules come in contact with the helium molecules in the tube, they release an intense amount of energy into the form of light or laser beams. This beam can instantly increase the temperature of the material that comes in contact with it and vaporize it.
Choosing the right laser for your needs The decision to buy a laser engraver or cutter is made by analyzing the specific materials that you want to cut and engrave. This will ensure that you get the best quality and longest lifespan for your investment.
Upgrading your machine to improve performance If you're serious about the performance of your laser cutter, there are a number of upgrades that can be performed. Water chillers, air purifiers and rotary attachments can be added to enhance your machine's ability to produce high-quality results.
