Engrave, cut and mark all types of materials with the MetaQuip CO2 Laser – Desktop lasercutter & engraving machine that features the highest quality cutting available. This desktop unit is perfect for small and medium enterprises for prototyping and small series or someone starting a business.
Laser cutting or engraving is an ideal process for a range of materials, especially flat sheet based materials. The infrared laser is focused to melt or evaporate the material, cutting through or ablating the top layer of the material. Laser engraving commonly used materials are plastics, wood, cork, paper, fabrics, leather, glass, mirrors and anodized or painted metal materials. During engraving the laser will ablate / evaporate the top layer, changing the surface structure even up to significant depths. Materials that can be cut easily are plastics, fabrics, leather, wood, cork and paper.
MetaQuip provides a fully automatic bed height adjustment for the Desktop and Professional CO2 laser machines. CO2 laser machines without this function must be manually adjusted every time after using a material with different thickness. This means that after placing the new material with a different thickness an included spacer must be used to position the laser head in focus. This requires to manually unscrew the laser head and position it against the spacer. Thereafter, the laser head must again be fixated by screwing it again. In the MetaQuip CO2 machines (not the Lite!) the bed (whole working area) can be fully automatically raised and lowered in the Z-direction. A sensor mounted to the laser head measures the distance to the new material and fully automatically focuses the laser head. No more adjustment, no manual work. Start immediately with cutting or engraving. Especially when you are often working with materials of different thicknesses this feature is very convenient and time-saving.
