A laser microjet is a water-jet guided laser in which a pulsed laser beam is coupled into a low-pressure water jet. This is used to perform laser cutting functions while using the water jet to guide the laser beam, much like an optical fiber, through total internal reflection. The advantages of this are that the water also removes debris and cools the material. Additional advantages over traditional “dry” laser cutting are high dicing speeds, parallel kerf, and omnidirectional cutting.
World renowned designer Sarah Angold combines her passion for sleek avant-garde styling with the visible structural engineering behind her intricate pieces. This signature aesthetic is seen in her collections that routinely collide hyper-modern industrial processes with meticulous hand assembly and artisanal craftsmanship, such as the stunning Kingla Necklace. Etsy seller ShopJoyo works at the intersection of art and technology to create clean, modern pieces that integrate graphic design with architectural influence. These drop earring take a simple rectangle shape and then brings it to life with a hand painted teal and gold geometric design. Born from a love of nature and pattern, Etsy seller adaandcedar puts an interesting twist on this moon-shaped tribal wood necklace by hand painting a peach color accent. The “Ethnotize” collection by Rename is a modern interpretation of traditional ethno symbols.
This machine is basically an upgraded version of the Twowin laser cutter. It claims to have a slightly larger working area and it has a bit more color. Here’s another cheap laser cutter kit that uses the 3018 pro CNC machine. Being able to adjust the z-axis is always convenient because it allows you to get just the right amount of laser focus. This cheap but high-quality machine comes with many tempting features that prevent accidents and fires from starting. If you can’t decide what laser cutter to choose, this is a safe, affordable option to go with.
CO2 lasers are some of the most useful lasers available, capable of cutting both thin materials, like paper, cloth, and glass, and thick materials, like wood and steel. All of our materials are stocked in-house for optimal convenience. With precision laser cutting there is no direct mechanical force on a part and no direct processing that produces residual material that can cause damage. Fixturing and setting up a precision laser-cutting job can be done very rapidly even with very tight tolerances. Depending on the material and the job, laser cutting parts and materials can also be precision laser cut and finished in a single step, removing the need for time-consuming and costly secondary post-processing.
2.5W lasers aren’t very powerful and can only easily cut thin materials like paper or thin balsa wood, whereas other materials will require a lot of time and many passes just to cut. So I would suggest you go with the 5.5W version of this machine to get the most out of it. That’s why I would recommend these laser cutters to hobbyists with experience or those who are serious about laser cutting and building new skills. Furthermore, CNC machines are highly customizable, so it pays off to know what you’re doing. Our specialists in laser cutting technology have over 25 years of experience. The knowledge gained during this time, combined with market feedback led to further development and optimization of Summa’s laser machines.
The ApS-Ethos Laser Cutting and Engraving software enable vector files to be imported or created before outputting to a Summa laser cutting machine, L Series, FB Series or GraphiXscan. Use automatic features to organize the layout of designs prior to outputting and assign material effects to the design to ensure accurate cutting. Our CNC-guided, high-performance laser cutters are so precise that we’re confident they can reduce wastage in manufacturing. Our machines can cut through a vast range of materials, including composites, brick, and stone. AP Lazer can easily fit into the manufacturing lines for countertops, commercial signage, fences, metalworks, electronics, and more.
