What should I pay attention to buy a laser engraver?
Aside from the types of materials to be processed, there are other important features to consider when purchasing a laser engraving machine. According to various laser cutting machine tests, software compatibility and compatible image formats are particularly important.
Most laser engravers are compatible with Windows software. Models compatible with Apple are very rare. Just like a 3D printer, the laser engraving machine is connected to a computer via cable and thus receives image data. These are then engraved on the desired object. Most laser engravers can process the most common image data such as JPEG, JPG, PNG and BMP. Be sure to pay attention to this information when purchasing.
Another very important purchase criterion is the maximum engraving size in mm. Some laser engravers are very small, working on areas as small as 38 x 38mm, as they are designed to engrave objects such as pens. Other machines have significantly larger dimensions in cm, such as 40 x 50 cm, because they specialize in processing larger items such as signs. So before you buy, think carefully about what format you want to edit.
The design and color of a laser engraver should be of secondary importance when making a purchase decision. The look of the machine is ultimately unimportant. It doesn't matter if your laser engraving machine is gold, silver or black as long as it gives you beautiful and accurate engravings.

Laser engraving is a popular option that provides a permanent and legible marking on an object through etching, ablation, or deep laser engraving. It is similar to laser marking, but the resulting appearance differs due to the depth of laser penetration.
Laser engraving is commonly used to create permanent serial markings on substrates made of: Metal, Wood, Plastic, Leather.
Benefits Of Laser Engraving Over Traditional Processes
Compared to manual engraving:
Minimally Invasive: Laser engraving can be performed at a range of depths without any direct contact at all. Surface marks can even be done on stainless steel with no depth. Overall, lasers are less damaging than manual engraving and keep the substrate material’s physical integrity intact.
Precise: Lasers provide a level of control that’s impossible to achieve manually. Compared to hand-engraving, the process is swift, clean, and highly repeatable, with little room for human error.
Versatile: A single laser engraving machine can be used to create a host of different designs with only minimal calibration. They can also produce exceptionally complex patterns.
Affordable: On average, laser devices last longer than other engraving machines and require less maintenance, resulting in savings that can be passed along to the consumer.
Fast: Lasers can be programmed to render virtually any design in a matter of moments. Because the process is automated, it’s easy to scale production runs as needed according to demand.
Long-Lasting: Laser-engraved designs are permanent but can wear over time, depending on the substrate material that’s used. Soft metals, for example, may experience more signs of wear than hardwood. In general, however, laser-engraved designs tend to have a longer lifespan compared to other engraving methods.
