There are various types of laser engraving machines, and the major difference between different types of laser engraving machines lies in the lasers. Fiber lasers and CO2 lasers are two common types of lasers. Many people usually ask which of these two engraving machines is better when choosing a laser engraving machine. Next, I will briefly introduce these two engraving machines.
The biggest difference between the two laser engraving machines is the laser. Fiber laser engraving machine uses fiber laser, which is suitable for high-contrast processing such as metal annealing and engraving. If you want to use it for laser cutting, a fiber laser engraver is better for you. Fiber lasers require no maintenance and have a long service life. Lunyee's fiber laser can be used for at least 100,000 hours.
CO2 lasers are suitable for various non-metallic materials, such as plastics, textiles, glass, acrylic, etc. If you need to cut thicker material, an engraving machine with a CO2 laser is more suitable for you. However, carbon dioxide lasers require higher power than fiber lasers and are more expensive to use.
Although fiber lasers and CO2 lasers have their own advantages, compared with co2 engravers, engraving machines using fiber lasers have lower cost, higher processing efficiency, and a wider range of applications in various industries.
