What is A Laser Cutting Machine?
Laser cutting machine is a laser equipment with CNC (Computer Numerical Control) system, which adopts CO2 laser or FIBER laser beam to cut metals (steel, copper, brass, aluminum, gold, silver, alloy, iron), acrylic, rubber, wood, plastic, leather, paper, foam, textile, fabric into 2D/3D shapes. Laser cutting machines are wide used in industrial manufacturing, school education, small business, home business, small shop, home shop, hobbyist, craftsman.
Laser cutting machine is equipped with machine frame, laser generator, laser power supply, reflector path, laser cutting head, control panel, water chiller and CNC (Computer Numerical Control) system.
Laser cutting machine is also called as laser cutter, laser cutter machine, laser cutting system, laser cutting equipment, laser cutting table, laser cut machine, laser cutting tool.
The laser emitted by the laser generator is focused by the optical path system into a laser beam of high power density. The laser beam is irradiated onto the surface of the workpiece to bring the workpiece to a melting point or boiling point, while the high-pressure gas coaxial with the beam blows away the molten or vaporized material. As the laser beam moves relative to the workpiece, the material is slit finally, thereby achieving the purpose of cutting. Different laser powers can different workpieces with different thickness. Generally speaking, higher laser power for thicker workpiece. You should make the appropriate choice according to your requirements.

Laser Cutting Benefits
Laser cutting replaces traditional mechanical knives with invisible laser beams. Laser cutting has high precision, high speed, high quality, it is not limited to cutting pattern restrictions, saves materials by automatic typesetting, smooth cuts, and low processing cost. It will gradually improve or replace traditional cutting process equipment. The mechanical part of the laser cutter head has no contact with the workpiece, and it will not scratch the surface of the workpiece during operation. The laser cutting speed is fast, the slit is smooth and flat, generally no subsequent processing is required. Laser cutting heat affected zone is small, the sheet deformation is small. The slit has no mechanical stress, no shear burr. Laser cutting has high processing precision, good repeatability, does not damage the surface of the material. Laser cutting adopts CNC programming, which can process any plan, and cut the whole workpiece with a large format, no need to open the mold, economic and time-saving.
The laser cutter cost is composed of the following items:
1. Laser machine parts.
2. Laser cutting software.
3. Shipping cost.
4. Tax rates.
6. Service and technical support.
A fiber laser cutting machine cost is from $8,800.00 to 260,000.00.
A CO2 laser cutting machine cost is from $2,600.00 to 68,800.00.

- Harry from CanadaPosted a review for Fiber Laser Cutting Machine for Sale at an Affordable Price on Oct 27, 2019
The fiber laser machine has performed better than expected. I have been cutting metal tags and signs, and it has done a very good job. The software is adequate but could be better. Delivery was sooner than expected, and setup was no problem thanks to some help videos from the nice supplier. It's a good business machine.
- Alfie from United KingdomPosted a review for The Best CO2 Laser Cutter for Small Business on Oct 26, 2019
I'm an avid crafter and work with computers, so I didn't have any issues acclimating to the software. You have to get a feel for the configuration settings, but that varies by the media you are cutting upon and takes some minor trial and error. I bought a MDF board and played until I got the settings the way I wanted. I had a few newbie questions of the vendor and I found the email response was FANTASTIC and vendor was definitely committed toward me getting the most of this laser machine and went above and beyond to ensure my satisfaction. If you're looking for a laser cutter to get a feel for this type of craft, I can HIGHLY recommend this cutter. Happy "cutting" :)
- GEORGE from CanadaPosted a review for 100W Laser Wood Cutting Machine for Sale with CO2 Laser Source on Oct 16, 2019
I like the way this laser wood cutter works... powered by my laptop, it cuts patterns for products produced in my woodcrafts shop. It is a bit on the slow side but, for the money, it can't be beat. Because of the speed, it would not be a good mass production machine but, for limited-edition items kin my shop, the price was right and it does the job very well. I have a lot of experience installing and operating peripheral equipment on my system... that experience and my ability to intuit the "how to" from the video provided with the machine got me through.
