With an optical power output of 4.5 watts, this 20-watt laser engraver is non-threatening but powerful enough to cleanly etch wood.
My favorite thing about the A5 Pro is the fixed focus feature. This means you no longer need to spend time adjusting focus before sculpting. The machine automatically adjusts to the surface. Another beginner-friendly feature is the precise tick axis. Take the guesswork out of tick marks on the X and Y axes. This means a more accurate design.
Regarding accuracy, the A5 Pro's focal point is 50% smaller (0.01) than a typical laser engraver.
The A5 Pro is 90% assembled and set up. The rest of the time will not exceed 10 minutes. It has an eye protection shield that blocks radiation. So you can view and supervise the engraving process without hurting your eyes.
Other powerful models are also available, such as the A5 Pro and A5 M50. But the A5 20W is a good place to start.
If you often find yourself carving wood and metal surfaces, ATOMSTACK's S20 Pro serves both purposes. There are no limits to the capabilities of this powerful laser engraver.
It is equipped with four 6W laser coupling technologies to provide beams with power over 20W. Therefore, it can engrave or cut any metal surface. Users claim that it can cut 15mm thick paulownia boards in one go.
When it comes to engraving, the S20 Pro features a 32-bit motherboard with built-in 256-bit color coding and a 0.08 X 0.1 mm focal spot laser to deliver the best results. With this machine, engraved patterns on any surface will have greater contrast, depth and color clarity.
The machine is designed for longer working hours. It has an air assist kit that removes smoke and dust and prevents overheating.
Another impressive feature of the Atomstack S20 Pro is offline sculpting. Therefore, the engraving process does not stop when the computer is disconnected.
It has a sturdy metal design that could last a decade if properly cared for. So the S20 might be the only laser engraver you can buy.
