There are three main areas for a laser machine’s running costs:
- power consumption
- consumable parts
Beyond Laser will provide you with almost all of the equipment needed to start your laser machine working – all you need to supply is the space for the machine to stand and a computer for your laser machine as well as design software like Coraldraw if required.Beyond Laser will provide the laser machine, software and accessories and training on how to use it all.
The PC required for running the laser should have a minimum specification of:
|PC Type||Tower PC recommended.
Laptop or slim line PC acceptable.
|Hard Disk||40 GB|
|Display||1024 x 768
|Expansion||2 USB 2.0 ports|
|Operating System||Windows 7
Whilst a relatively low specification of PC is adequate for running the laser machine, if there are other applications, software or services using significant processing power whilst the laser machine is running, this may cause disruption to the laser cutting and/or engraving process.
Yes. CO2 laser machines are able to mark coated metals such as anodised aluminium, or you can use a metal marking paste or spray to engrave on stainless steel and similar uncoated materials.The laser beam will not etch into the metal, but rather performs a small chemical reaction with the coating on the metal to change the colouring, creating a black permanent mark.To etch into the surface of metals you will require a fibre laser engraver.
Only our combination CO2 lasers HS-BM 135W & 300W can cut through thin metals.Lower power CO2 laser beams will reflect off the metal and are unable to cut through the surface.To cut though metals you can use a different type of laser such as Fibre laser machines which are specially designed to cut through metals.
