Our newest investment is an industrial grade Ruida laser/cutter engraver. It
was specially fabricated for our needs and consists of 3 axis movement plus
rotary attachment, 80W laser tube, an industrial chiller, air and water pump.
The main working area is 600 x 400 mm, although with opening on both
sides engraving or cutting longer materials is relatively easy by feeding the
The rotary attachment allows round objects to be engraved, such as
glasses, bottles etc.
The marking of organic materials like wood is based on material
carbonisation which produces darkening of the surface and marks with high
contrast. Directly “burning” images on wood were some of the first uses of
engraving lasers. The laser power required here is often less than 10 watts
depending on the laser being used as most are different. Hardwoods like
walnut, mahogany and maple produce good results. Softwoods can be
judiciously engraved but tend to vaporize at less-consistent depths. Marking
softwood requires the lowest power levels and enables the fastest cut
speeds, while active cooling (e.g. a fan with sufficient airflow) inhibits
ignition. Hard papers and fiberboard work well. Leathers though can be
laser-engraved with a look very similar to hot-branding. Certain latex rubber
compounds can be laser engraved; for example these can be used to
fabricate inking-stamps. Can be used in denim, cotton, polyester blends,
acrylic materials, accuracy of positioning 0,01 mm.
We are selling these machines in Ireland, including accessories. Spare
parts also available.
