6 Differences Between CO2 Laser Engraving Machine And Mini CNC Router Machine.
- Release on:2016-01-21
are many different aspects between CO2 laser engraving machine (SL-3020 SL-460) and mini CNC
router machine (CNC 6040, CNC 3040, CNC 6090)such as working speed, engraving materials, and
working principle diagram.
1. The biggest difference between them
is that laser can only make flat carving but CNC engraving machine can
make not only flat carving but also embossment.
2. The working speed of laser engraving is faster than mini CNC router machine.
Talking about working principle diagram, laser engraving machine carves
materials through laser high temperature vaporization while mini CNC router engraves objects by cutter.
4. As for engraving
materials, laser engraving machine is usually used to carve non-metallic
materials like acryl, timber, leather, plastic, glass and jade etc. On
the contrary, CNC engraving machine can carve metallic materials and
some non-metallic materials such as acryl, PCB and bakelite.
Besides working principle and carving materials, the total power of
these two machines is different. The total power of XL-460 laser engraving machine is 300w while our CNC 6040 is 1850w.
We know that both laser engraving machine and mini CNC router
produce waste while working, which the former is smoke and the latter is
These are some general points about the differences between CO2 laser engraving machine and mini CNC router, These two kinds of
engraving machines have their own advantages and disadvantages. How to
pick them depends on what kinds of materials
