Why it is important to choose a high quality machine for plastic

Some manufactures bribe customers with low cost of their equipment. But what is hiding behind cheapness? Most often, manufacturers save on components. However, it is unacceptable for laser equipment.

Equipment of a high quality must perform processing of material at the proper level with no product failures or standstill. That is why components are usually bought from the world-known brands and cannot be cheap.

When buying a cheap machine, a client always takes a chance of his equipment failing very soon. Even new equipment of a low quality can require repairing after a month of operation only.

When working with plastics, it is important to pay attention to its characteristics. Low-quality machines are rarely universal and cannot be adapted to the particular material. For example, when machining plastics, you should remember that its varieties may differ in its thermophysical properties. Consequently, there should be the possibility to adjust energy parameters of laser machines. High-quality equipment provides localized heating, which prevents damage to the material.

Another feature of plastic is the darkening of edges during laser treatment. Most often, it is caused by a low quality of the blowing system.

How to choose a laser machine for plastic

A laser machine allows producing items of any shape and size. It can also be used for cutting or engraving plastic. However, only the properly chosen machine can handle individual production tasks. Therefore, we offer to learn the main criteria for choosing a laser machine for plastic.

Laser tube power

This parameter determines how thick the plastic to be processed can be. The power of the co2 laser tube also affects the operation speed. That is why this parameter is one of the most important.

If there is a need to process material of different thicknesses, we recommend selecting equipment with high power. At the same time, a desktop model with a laser tube up to 60 W is quite suitable for producing single items.

Working area

The working area size is also a very important criterion for correct choice of a laser machine for plastic. It determines the dimensions of the material to be processed.

Note that the price of the machine also depends on its working area. The larger it is, the higher the price is.

If you are engaged in mass production of items made from large sheets of plastic, we recommend considering equipment with a working area from 1200×900 mm. And for manufacturing single items, a laser machine with a working area of 500×300 will be the most optimal choice.

Optional accessories

This criterion is focused on the features of plastic processing. A lifting table option is indispensable when processing plastic sheets of different thicknesses. Thin large sheets of material usually have a slightly curved shape and are difficult to place on the worktable. The table lifting option allows changing the height of the working area adapting to the sheets of various thickness.

Anodized blade tables are also excellent for machining plastic. This coating minimizes backfiring of the laser and allows you to evenly distribute the temperature of the laser. This prevents changing the color of the edges.
