Hanslaser has the best technology in China, about their product, I suggest you check it out by yourself. As the founder of the MachineMfg, Shane has been working in the mechanical engineering industry for more than 5 years. He loves writing and focuses on sharing technical information, guidance, detailed solutions and thoughts related to metals and metalworking. Through his articles, users can always easily get related problems solved and find what they want. In fact, when we say “the best”, there should be a judgment standard there, such as product quality, cost performance, service and so on.
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.
A map of how deep and/or dark the laser cutter etches based on the percentage of power and percentage of speed. I will be opening up shop soon to start building small CNC devices such as laser cutters, routers, 3D printers, etc. very soon. I will be taking orders for the first production run this October if interested. Kudos to Barton Dring for the original design and for open sourcing the mechanics.

The laser-cutting beam is also very narrow, leading to kerf widths as small as thousandths of an inch, depending on the material, laser power, and laser optics. Moreover, laser cutting can also cut material to very fine surface finishes in the range of just over a hundred microinches, at a minimum.
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.
It’s mobile-compatible, so just upload a file of your design or sketch from your phone and let this whiz-bang engraver take it from there. On the other hand, some materials are more difficult to cut with lasers. Thermoset polymers and organic materials like wood, for instance, burn rather than melt when exposed to a laser — a quality that allows for engraving or branding, but not precise cutting.
