Laser Engraving Machines for Tumblers
There are several laser machines available in the market. Some of them even cost as little as you can buy two of them in your budget. However, not every product is suitable for engraving stainless steel cups.
Sometimes, you have to think out of the box and spend a little extra to get the perfect device for your setup. You can find three types of lasers in the engraving machine. The device’s price greatly depends on which type of laser is included in it. For instance, the fiber laser is the most expensive, followed by the CO2 laser, and the diode laser is the cheapest you can get.
The fiber laser is usually used in large, more powerful commercial engraving machines. These machine uses a different technology to engrave or cut material. Due to its high efficiency, it is very pricy and only factories uses it for commercial use.
Small CO2 laser machines are used for DIY projects and small businesses. The wide range of materials that you can use with the laser and its affordable price contribute to such popularity. Moreover, you don’t need much experience to operate a CO2 laser as it is completely safe for beginners and professionals alike.
The diode laser is the most common and safe laser engraving machines in the world. Diode lasers are the cheapest laser engraving machines of all and due to that fact, these are not as powerful as the other two types are. Laser engraving and etching can be produced through multiple passes over the tumbler. The major benefit of the diode laser engraver is its lower price and the ability to mark any surface without damaging its material.
