CNC Fiber Laser Cutter VS CO2 Engraving Machine-Metools


CNC Fiber Laser Cutter VS CO2 Engraving Machine-Metools



When choosing between a fiber laser cutter and a CO2 laser, you may not know which machine is best for your application.

We provide the following important factors to ensure our customers are better served.

What is the essential difference between them?

The fiber laser generator of the fiber laser cutting machine can generate a high energy density laser beam. The laser beam is collected on the surface of the cutting material, and the cutting area is rapidly melted and vaporized by the irradiation of the light spot. This enables automatic cutting.

And The CO2 laser machine uses a laser power source to drive the laser tube to emit light, and through the refraction of several mirrors, the light is focused on the laser head, which sublimates the material into a gas and is sucked away by a fan to achieve the purpose of cutting.

The following table is for reference.
