Things To Consider When Buying Laser Engravers for Metal In 2023

Top 10 Best Laser Metal Engravers & Engraving Machines

What Is It?

Metal laser engraver is a type of CNC laser marking system with fiber laser source for 2D/3D metal engraving on stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminum, galvanized steel, silver, alloy, gold, copper, titanium, iron and brass. Metal laser engravers can make 2D laser engraving, color laser engraving, rotary laser engraving, online flying laser engraving, deep laser engraving and 3D laser engraving on metal surface. CNC laser metal engraving machine uses the ligh beam to remove the specific part of the metal material, so as to achieve the desired effect or mark. In metal engraving applications, the laser beam is like a chisel used in CNC engraving, chiseling away excess metal material. A laser engraver is the best way to engrave metals without tools.

How Does It Work?

Metal laser engraving machines use MOPA fiber laser source for color engraving on stainless steel and titanium, and use rotary device for engraving on rings, bracelets and bangles jewelry, and use online flying system for mass production with continuous manufacturing process, and use high laser power for deep engraving on metal, and use 3D system for engraving on aspheric surface, angular surface, rollers, pipes, cylinders and most curved surface.

What Is It Used For?

Laser metal engravers are used for engraving, etching or marking on stainless steel, aluminum alloy, alumina, tungsten steel, zinc alloy, titanium alloy, gold, silver, copper, iron, bamboo products, leather products, plastics, silica gel, paper, acrylic, glass, ceramics, jade, porcelain, PC board, PU and other materials.

Laser metal engraving machines are applied in electronic components, hardware products, tool accessories, integrated circuits (IC), electrical appliances, mobile communications, precision equipment, glasses and watches, jewelry, auto parts, plastic buttons, building materials, PVC pipes, PPR Pipe, medical equipment and other industries.

Pros & Cons

Compared with traditional mechanical metal engraving, laser engraver has many advantages in metal fabrication:

1. Laser metal engraving does not need to contact the engraved workpiece, so many fixtures and tools are omitted, and the workpiece will not generate internal stress after engraving, ensuring the original accuracy of the workpiece.

2. No corrosion to the working surface, no "tool" wear, no poison, no pollution.

3. The high-precision characteristics of laser engraving are also particularly suitable for the processing of complex graphics.

4. The mark will not fade due to environmental relations (touch, acid and reduced gas, high temperature, low temperature, etc.), and it has high anti-counterfeiting.

5. Non-contact: Laser metal engraving is processed by a non-mechanical "light knife", which can print marks on any regular or irregular surface.

6. Low operating cost: The engraving speed is fast and the engraving is formed at one time, with low energy consumption and low operating cost. Although the equipment investment of the laser metal marking machine is larger than that of the traditional engraving tools, from the operating cost, the use of the laser metal etching machine is much lower.

Features

Laser metal engraving machine uses a light beam to make permanent marks on the surface of various materials. The effect of engraving is to expose deep material through the evaporation of surface material, or to engrave traces by light energy causing chemical and physical changes on the surface material, or to burn off part of the metal material through light energy to show the text or pattern to be etched.

1. It can process most metal or non-metal materials.

2. The laser is processed with non-mechanical "tools", which does not produce mechanical extrusion or mechanical stress on the material, has no "tool" wear, is non-toxic and rarely causes environmental pollution.

3. The laser beam is very thin, so that the consumption of the processed material is small.

4. During engraving, it will not generate X-rays like electron beam bombardment and other processing methods, nor will it be interfered by electric and magnetic fields.

5. The operation is simple, the use of computer numerical control technology can realize automatic processing, can be used for high-speed and high-efficiency processing of parts and components on the production line, and can be used as a part of the flexible processing system.

6. The precision workbench can be used for fine micro processing.

7. Use a microscope or camera system to observe or monitor the condition of the processed surface.

8. It can pass through light-transmitting materials (such as quartz, glass) to process its internal parts.

9. The prism and mirror system can be used to focus the beam on the inner surface or inclined surface of the workpiece for processing.

10. Can mark bar codes, numbers, characters, patterns and other signs.

11. The line width of these signs can be as small as 12mm, and the line depth can be up to 10mm or less, so it can mark the zero surface of the "millimeter" size.

When the common metal materials are engraved, lines with a depth of several microns or more (the width can be several microns to tens of microns) are ablated from the surface to make the color and reflectivity of the lines different from the original ones, resulting in visual contrast, so that people can be sensitive to these lines (and the shape codes, numbers, patterns, trademarks, etc. formed by the lines). For glass, these ablated lines have a "dullening" effect. For plastics, due to the photochemical reaction and ablation, there are visual contrast and smoldering effects. If the surface of the material is coated with a special colored substance for marking, the colored substance will be fixed (a high temperature ablation with the material) on the line and make it colored.

Light Engraving VS Deep Engraving for Metal

Laser metal engraving is divided into two types: light engraving and deep engraving (relief engraving). Generally, the depth of light engraving is 5-25mm, the depth of deep engraving is generally deeper, and the specific depth depends on the different metals, the laser power and the time of engraving.

Light engraving is typically used for permanent marking on the surface of various tools and parts. Deep engraving is mainly used for engraving abrasive tools and seals.

In short, the engraving depth is related to factors such as the absorption of the laser by the engraved material, the power of the laser, and the action time of the laser on the engraved metal. Deep engraving usually requires a longer action time. Deep and light engravings can be carried out on the surface of various metal materials, such as signs, identification codes, company logos, and more complex images.

After figuring out the features with Mike's remote assistance this laser has been working great. The STJ-50F is an absolute game-changer. The 50W output power is perfect for a wide range of deep metal engravings. I was blown away by the precision and speed of this engraver. It effortlessly engraved intricate designs on various gun barrels, stocks, magazines with materials like stainless steel, brass, and even aluminum with incredible detail. The engraving software is user-friendly and easy to operate, offering lots of customization options, allowing us to create unique designs with ease. Build quality is also top-notch, with a sturdy frame ensuring stability during operation. In addition, I really appreciate its safety features, such as the laser protective goggles and safety shield (optional), which give me peace of mind while using the machine. Overall, the STJ-50F exceeded my expectations in terms of versatility, performance, and ease of use. Great metal engraving tool kit with outstanding customer service. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a high-quality laser engraver for personalized gun engravings.

Stop looking at other laser machines this is the machine you are looking for. If you are looking to buy your first fiber laser engraver for metal: This is the engraver you should get. If you already have a laser and looking to add to your collection: This is the engraver you should get. If you have another engraver but it is not very good: This is the engraver you should get. If you are debating whether you should get this machine: This is the engraver you should get. You are not going to find a better engraver at this price point. Period. This machine is actually underpriced for the quality it outputs. I bought my first laser marking machine over a year and a half ago after doing extensive research (as you are most likely doing now) I purchased an STJ-50F. I was very excited to enter into this new area of metal deep engraving. Set up took all of about 10 minutes if that. Everything was packed securely and did not have any damage and they include a ton of extras in the box including protective glasses. I started my first test deep engraving which is a logo on the gun barrels and I watched details laid down with pure astonishment. The engravings came out so neat and clean, I showed them to everyone. By this time I was hooked. After a couple of months I decided to buy the other three engravers (two sets of STJ-50F and one set of STJ-50F-Desktop). I was also excited to get that as well. The STJ-50F is virtually maintenance free. I have never done anything to this machine. Never had any problems. Like this one all my STJ-50F are stock without any issues. With that being said, as I write this my very first STJ-50F power supply didn't work. I contacted support. The lady I chatted with was extremely pleasant to talk to and just made me much more happy in my choice to continue supporting this company. Within a few minutes she has removed the trouble for me remotely. Now that is some awesome customer service. (Some companies take a few days to get a hold of, but not STYLECNC). I am very happy with my STJ-50F and very glad I chose to start my deep metal engraving venture with this machine. Had I started with something else in this price range I might not still be doing metal engraving as this requires virtually no troubleshooting other then the metal engraving parameter setting in EZCAD software. The quality this machine outputs is amazing, The engravings are clean and smooth (as long as you have your settings right in EZCAD software). I can not recommend this machine enough if you are a beginner, experienced or even looking for the right machine to start or grow up your business at an affordable price. Choose the STJ-50F. You can not go wrong and will not be disappointed.

I have just received the STJ-50F. Worked out of the box and had no issues at all. Exactly the same as described. I puchased the latest model and the EZCAD software was included. Got the fiber laser engraver up and running with the software installed and my first engraving and cutting in about 30 minutes. Resulted in clear & smooth edges and lines. Easy to use for a novice with the instructional videos. Great for the price and worth buying. Recommend getting the exhaust fan, which is a must have for indoor use.
