What's Desktop Laser Engraving?

Laser engraving is a process that utilizes a small laser to create permanent marks on a material's surface. Many of these Laser modules or processes are capable of cutting through certain materials as well. These machines were once out of reach for the average consumer because of their size and price tag.  There are different types of Laser engravers like Diode, CO2, Fiber, and more. SainSmart focuses on affordable machines for the hobbyist and small business owner, with a range of Diode Module laser engravers and upgrades.

The laser precisely engraves onto the material surface, either burning or melting where it touches to leave a permanent mark. Depending on the color of the material, a laser leaves a white, gray, or black mark during the engraving process.

 

What Do The Numbers and Letters Mean?

The numbers in the model represent the size of the working area and the letters represent either LE for Laser Engraver or LC for Laser Cutter. For example, Jinsoku LE 1620's working dimensions are 160 mm x 120 mm (6.2'' x 4.7'' ). SainSmart carries a variety of machines with different work areas and capabilities.
