For engraving of round materials, 4060 or 9060 laser machine both arr good. At the time of buying, you should ask the seller to configure the lifting platform and have a rotary engraving device.

Engraving large woodblock prints
For large wood paintings or other large materials, you should choose a large laser engraving machine or laser cutting machine. I suggest you buy 1390 with a lifting platform and you can put materials on the front and back of the laser engraver, so it is easy to engrave large wooden boards.
Cutting cloth and leather
For the cutting of materials such as leather fabrics, we have a professional laser cutter- EMIT1610. The laser cutter has a fast cutting speed, high power and a honeycomb cutting platform.
Acrylic materials are very hard. You should choose a lasermachine with a large power and long life. It is best to choose a blade platform for the working platform, so that the bottom of the material will not be reflected. In addition, cutting for acrylic is the most high requirement for CO2 laser cutter, so this is a good standard for testing the laser technology capabilities of suppliers.

Laser tubes are the most important part of laser engraving machines. The price of laser tubes is different in the market. Some sellers use low-quality laser tubes to reduce costs. Compared with low-quality laser tubes, high-quality laser tubes can be used tens of thousands hours. So you can ask the seller about the life of the laser tube to judge the quality of the laser tube.

The laser lens determines the power of the laser engraving machine. If you are planning to buy a high-power laser engraving machine, then you should choose a good laser lens.
4. Machine casing
In order to reduce the cost, some manufacturers use a very thin iron sheet to make the machine casing. The customer will not pay attention to it at the beginning, but after a period of use, the laser engraving machine will be deformed. The best laser engraving machine should be Used frame structure, welded with high quality steel, and made of high quality cold rolled steel to make the casing. Before buying, you can request about the thickness of the seller’s machine casing to judge the quality.
