Laser engraving machine and CNC engraving machine Tuesday, November 1, 2022 3:26:24 AM
When it comes to the difference between laser engraver and CNC engraving machine, the most obvious difference is that laser engraving machine (eg: Sculpfun) uses laser melting method for engraving, while CNC engraving machine uses digital technology to control cutting tools or laser head and ultrasonic head for engraving . The laser engraver machine can be a CNC engraving machine. The CNC engraving machine can also be installed with a laser head for engraving, so the two are the same.
Although they both use CNC systems, they work differently and have different mechanical structures. In contrast, the structure of CNC engraving machine is relatively simple. Through the control of the computer numerical control system, the Sculpfun S9 laser engraver automatically selects the appropriate engraving tool to engrave on the X, Y, and Z axes of the machine tool.
According to the specific use, the laser engraver is divided into different special machines. The structure of the special plane is basically the same. The laser source emits laser light, and the CNC system controls the stepper motor of the laser plug-in to move the laser head, mirror, lens, etc. on the optical components, so that the focus moves on the X, Y, and Z axes of the machine tool, so that the material is ablated.
The biggest difference between engraving laser machine and CNC engraving machine is that the cutter of Sculpfun S10 laser engraver is a complete set of optical components, while the cutter of CNC engraving machine is an engraving knife composed of various entities.
1: Laser engraving and polishing are done once, while CNC is done twice.
2: The diameter of the laser beam is only 0.01 mm, the CNC tool is 20 times larger, and the waste is large.
3: The laser speed is 2.5 times faster than the CNC engraving machine.
4: The energy consumption of the laser is lower than that of the CNC engraving machine.
5: The laser has no noise, no pollution and high efficiency; CNC machine tools are noisy and pollute the environment.
6: The laser is non-contact and does not need to fix the workpiece. The CNC is contact processing, and the workpiece is fixed.
7: The laser can process soft materials, such as cloth, leather, film, etc.;
CNC cannot be processed because the workpiece cannot be fixed. Therefore, the advantages of Sculpfun S30 Pro Max laser engraver are more and more widely used in billboards, plexiglass products, garment processing, leather processing, product identification and other industries.
