LaserPro's parent company is GCC. GCC is the world's largest manufacturer of sign plotters, laser cutters, and laser engravers.
LaserPro equipment is manufactured in Taiwan. Some machines are also assembled in the U.S.
No. Unfortunately without HIGH wattage units (400+ watts) no CO2 laser will engrave or cut into this type of metal. CO2 lasers use a wave frequency that allows the lasering of virtually any material with the exception of raw metals. Only anodized or coated metal can be engraved by CO2 lasers.
You have multiple options when it comes to the software you want to use. Some of the more popular choices are CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator, and AutoCAD.
Almost any material except unprocessed metals and substances that are too heat sensitive, such as foam. Other than that the materials the LaserPro laser engraver/cutter can etch into and/or vector cut are nearly limitless. Here is a brief list of materials that have been proven to work well.
Depending on model up to 1″ . Following are examples of what our various wattage lasers can cut through in a single pass successfully.
12 watts … 1/4″ thick acrylic
30 watts … 1/2″ thick acrylic
60 watts … 3/4″ thick acrylic
100 watts … 1″ thick acrylic
Better engraving & cutting effect. The air assist kit is a standard component that comes with the LaserPro family of laser engravers/cutters. In conjunction with optional air compressor, the air assist can provides a much better engraving & cutting effect, as it will blow away vaporized particles and prevent fire due to overheating.
The cutting table is best for vector cutting applications/projects. The space between materials and working table, gapped by the cutting table, allows heat and smoke to be disbursed and vented out which may otherwise cause a bad cutting effect. It lifts the material being vector cut from the table so the laser beam will not reflect back into the bottom of the material off the table.
The maximum diameter and length of the to-be-engraved object is 6.5″ (165mm) and 17.75″(450mm) respectively. Its maximum weight should not exceed 15.5lbs (7kg).
Here are some basic tips on what you should check on consistently in order to keep your laser in good shape. Regular cleaning of the railings to allow rollers to move smoothly, belts to ensure no particles obstruct the belts alignment and optics, clean mirrors and lens.
All of our lasers come with a two year warranty. Once you're a customer of LaserPro, you're always a customer of LaserPro and we will take care of you and do what it takes to keep you satisfied, productive and profitable.
Note: Consumables such as Lights, Optics [mirrors and lens] are considered consumable items on the LaserPro line of engravers/cutters and as such is covered under warranty for only a 90 day period.
Raster images are composed of dots & Vector images are composes of lines. Raster, or bitmapped, graphics produce images as grids of individually defined pixels Vector graphics produce images using mathematically generated points, lines, and shapes. The clean lines and smooth curves of vector graphics make them an obvious choice for logos, drawings, and other artwork that will appear in print, particularly with lasers.
