The mechanical engraving machine contacts the material through the cutter, and the depth can be set according to the demand; Laser engraving machine is a non-contact processing surface, which is mainly processed by focusing the light emitted by the energy source laser tube. In addition, there are some differences between the two, as follows:
First, the accuracy of laser machine is higher than that of mechanical machine, because the beam diameter is small, and the knife of mechanical machine has a certain width;
Second, when processing metal materials, the engraving machine can carve the corresponding depth, and the laser machine can only carve a little shallow on the surface of the metal
Third, the material is fixed. The laser machine does not contact the material, and there is no fixed step. The mechanical machine is processed by tool contact, and the material needs to be firmly fixed.
But some materials can only be realized by laser engraving machine, such as cutting flexible materials such as paper, leather, cloth, etc.
