A laser engraving machine for metal provides a number of benefits, including:
- Highly efficient removal of material to permanently create characters and images on metal surfaces
- No need to replace bits and inks and other consumables needed for mechanical transfers
- Greater flexibility in design and reproduction
- Remarkably consistent and reliable material removal compared to mechanical processes
A laser can remove material very efficiently because the laser beam can be designed to deliver energy to the surface in a manner which converts a high percentage of the light energy into heat. However, because of this efficiency, the equipment used in laser engraving machine for metal may heat up rather quickly, requiring sophisticated cooling systems for the laser. Alternatively, the laser beam may be pulsed to decrease the amount of excessive heating.
