What are the Advantages of Laser Engravers for Metal?

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

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.

What are the Features of Metal Laser Engraver?

Metal laser engraving machine uses a laser 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 mainly used for permanent marking on the surface of various tools and parts. Deep engraving is mainly used for engraving abrasive tools, seals, etc.

Generally speaking, 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.

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.

I purchased this fiber laser engraver after researching how to videos and learning its pros and cons in advance. Assembly was sort of easy with the instruction book. The software that comes with it is easy to use. I have done a few tests for 3D deep relief engraving and stippling guns with some examples and a couple of my own creations. It worked well and resulted in smooth and clear patterns. A great gun engraver kit for anyone with intuition and patience on custom personalized firearms. So far it is worth the money.

I like the size of the laser engraver a lot. Assembly instructions are not the greatest but useable. Software is easy to use for beginners. The seller was very responsive when I had an issue with a part. Have used it to engrave a couple of metal blanks. It made good engravings while it lasted.

Got it very quickly in less than 13 days and everything was great. The only issue was that the laptop came without a battery. STYLECNC's explanation is that due to the shipping policy, the battery cannot be shipped with the laptop, so I had to buy one myself from Amazon.

This is my first tool getting into laser. For a novice, the manual is easy to follow. The STJ-20FM is quick to set up and easy to get running with the software provided. Fast speed and have had impressive results with engraving colorful signs on stainless steel cards. The rotary attachment is fantastic for etching YETI cups, as well as bracelets and rings.

My husband is starting a custom gun building business and he has to make a mark on the completed firearm to stay in accordance with the law of ATF. I searched for weeks and made some feature comparisons and finally decided to give the ST-50F a chance. Took 7 days for shipping. Got it on June 9. How easy and precise the fiber laser engraver fits together makes it worth the money. This unit works great for small gun parts. Rotary laser engraved marks have surprised me. So far it has performed better than expected.

Very good fiber laser engraver. It's portable, easy to carry and move. On receipt, I was slightly concerned about some damage to the shipping container, but once I opened it, the system was so well-packed that it made no difference. Assembly was easy and probably add a secondary platform from Thorlabs or Newport to improve the precision by which targets may be placed for etching, which I anticipate going as easily as placing the guides that came with the system. Software and driver installation was easy and now it's a matter of adjusting to the quirks and limitations of EZCAD. The foot pedal seems to do nothing and it is not even mentioned in the documentation. Mechanically, there is only one way for it go in, so that's not the issue. In consequence, I have it on a switched outlet and I further safeguard against accidents by unplugging it when not in use. Does very well on the business card targets provided. Etched Ni-steel test target, but slightly faint. If deep etching steel, go 50W.

This is new for me, I am a gun DIYer and wanted to have a way to customize my pieces. There is quite a learning curve but that is expected. I purchased this unit as an intro to the gun engraving. The engraver was easy to assemble thanks to well written instructions and bagged parts. Easy to use and lots of fun. So far I am really enjoying creating projects. The quality of the laser engraved guns is excellent.
