CO2 laser engraving machine
CO2 laser engraving machine is a high and new technology product in the world. It is integration of light, machine and electricity which is very high technology machine . In the mid and early 90s, with the successful development of laser engraving technology, the carving industry began to develop rapidly. So far, the use of engraving machines has been in every industry, and it has become a common equipment in daily tasks. Nowadays, it is mainly used in advertising, artworks, mold, construction, printing and packaging, wood industry, decoration, leather industry, etc.
In decoration industry, it can be treated that the application is beautiful and incredible thing. The following is an introduction of wood engraving to everyone. The first is log which is not processed wood. It is the most common kind of laser processing material in daily life, and it is also easily engraved and cut. For example, light colored wood, such as birch, cherry or maple, is easily vaporized by laser, so it is more suitable for engraving. However, since each kind of wood has its own characteristics, according to the concrete objects, we select right wood for engraving. It is suggest that the characteristics of the engraving machine should be first studied before engrave the wood which is not very familiar.
Next one is plywood which is a kind of natural wooden board, It is also one of the common materials for making furniture. The engraving on the plywood is not much different from wood engraving, but one point is to be noticed that the engraving depth should not be too deep. The edges of the plywood after cuttings are also darkened as engrave wood, but the key point of plywood’s darkness is made by the kind of wood.
The wood engraving is usually intaglio. The power is set much higher, the depth of the engraving is much deeper. When hard wood is engraved, the color of the sculptures will become very deep. If want t get a lighter color, increase engraving speed and engrave it much more times. When engrave a certain wood, some oil fume dirt will be attached on wood surface. If the wood has been painted, it can be wiped carefully with a wet cloth. If the paint is not painted, it will be unclean and leave dirty on surface of engraved work piece.
With widespread use of laser engraving machines, printing and packaging plates are also gradually used by laser engraving technology. Corrugated cartons are common in the printing and packaging industry. However corrugated carton packaging can be divided into two categories, one is sales packaging, the other is transportation packaging. The sale package belongs to the inner packing which meets with the consumer during the sale, for example, color box, white box, gift box, etc. The transport package belongs to the outer packaging which not to meet the customer during the sale, and then it is good at storage and transportation, for example, cartons, corrugated boxes and so on.
Due to low cost of laser engraving on paper packaging materials and it is only 1/4 of the resin plate, laser engraving machines are commonly used to make corrugated boxes in printing and packaging industry.
Laser engraving handicraft that sending high energy density laser beam onto the material surface then makes physical chemical changes on this surface and finally obtain visible patterns.
According to material, laser engraving crafts can be divided into: paper laser engraving crafts, bamboo crafts, fabric laser engraving, leather laser engraving, handicraft laser engraving, resin laser engraving crafts, glass laser engraving crafts, metal laser engraving crafts and jewelry laser engraving crafts
Finally it is application of inorganic glass crafts. The most common material in daily life is acrylic which is actually a kind of inorganic glass. It is easy to be cut and carved into a variety of shapes and sizes, and the cost is relatively lower. so it becomes the most commonly used material in sculpture processing industry.
