You maybe confused about several type of laser engraving machine, like 2D 2.5D and 3D laser engraving machine, this article will show you different on software, laser head about 3 different laser engraving machine.
Now that the Fiber laser marking machine has developed rapidly and quickly occupied the Many market, their differences are mainly distinguishes from application, work and machine parts. Laser machine can be divided into fiber laser machine, Co2 laser machine, UV laser machine etc. Here we just talk about the fiber laser machine. so this article will focus on fiber laser engraving machine 2D 2.5D and 3D laser machine,
2D laser engraving machine are widely used in many fields. For example, metal engraving such as stainless steel, carbon steel, gold, silver, copper, Brass and aluminum, and some plastic engraving such as animal ear tags,Keyboard,polymer,ABS and so on. it widely use in market, BOGONG MINI type laser engraving machine sold very well in market.
The fiber laser engraving machine available on the market satisfies most laser marking applications, such as logo making, serial numbers, technical specifications and other designs on metals (copper, iron, steel, stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, gold, silver, Brass Marking alloys, etc.) and ABS, etc. However, the working area of the fiber laser engraving machine mostly is 100*100mm, there have optional lens can bigger the engraving area: such as 70*70mm, 110*110mm, 150*10mm, 200*200mm 300*300mm Most of them are also equipped with low-power laser sources. Such as 20w 30W 50W 60w 80W and so on.
But the disadvantage of 2D fiber laser engraving machine is that it can only work on a flat surface. The more function is to use the Rotary System, we can also use it to mark some cylinders, such as cups. Or rings, bracelets, etc. Even in this case, it has many Limited on curved markings. So 3D fiber laser engraving machine and 2.5D laser engraving machine became popular in the market. A large part of it meets many needs of customers. But what is the difference between these three types of machines, the following HANTEN CNC article will show you
From technical part, we called it 2.5D because laser head still with a 2D laser head, but 2.5D with motorized lifting pillar. And galvo head can be controlled by software. software can control laser head move when machine working, so it can achieve 3D engraving. it means 3D laser, Z axis mirror inside laser head to move back and forth; 2.5D, Z axis stands for the third mirror to move automatically
2.5D laser engraving machine can finish all 2D laser work and can make 3D laser engraving on flat plate. 2.5D CANNOT make 3D engraving on curved part.
Lifting pillar of 2.5D laser machine must be motorized type.
There are three main applications for 3D laser marking machines. Including curved engraving, Embossing laser engraving and large-working Area engraving.
The 3D fiber laser Machine working area is usually below 300*300mm. We can use it to engraving curved and Ball surfaces. Unlike rotary engraving, 3D curved surface engraving has a very high accuracy, automatically adjusts the focal length,Mainly 3-axis dynamic focus technology and layered engraving technology. According to the different points in the working area, the focus is automatically adjusted through the machine software control, so that the 3D fiber laser marking machine can make molds and stamps, copper coins, mold steel and other materials. and works faster. It is the same as the ordinary 2D fiber laser machine
Embossing laser engraving is as popular as Curved laser engraving. We can use it to make many handicrafts, gifts, molds Retro coins and stamp, etc. But the purpose is Mainly for Material do deep engraving
Although the 2D laser machine can do deep engraving, But all the depths are the same, on the same plane. 3D laser engraving can reach different depths, behaving like a three-dimensional pattern, with a three-dimensional effect. Make the pattern more vivid.
As we know the maximum working area size of the 2D laser marking machine is 300*300mm. But many customers require a larger working size. Using 3D laser marking machine, usually its working size can reach 600*600mm. As for the larger size, it requires a customized scan head.
