DC Brushless Motors

Brushless DC (direct current) motor can run at a high RPM (revolutions per minute). The stator of the DC motor provides a rotating magnetic field that drives the armature to rotate. Among all the motors, the brushless dc motor can provide the most powerful kinetic energy and drive the laser head to move at tremendous speed. MimoWork’s best CO2 laser engraving machine is equipped with a brushless motor and can reach a maximum engraving speed of 2000mm/s. The brushless dc motor is rarely seen in a CO2 laser cutting machine. This is because the speed of cutting through a material is limited by the thickness of the materials. On the contrary, you only need small power to carve graphics on your materials, A brushless motor equipped with the laser engraver will shorten your engraving time with greater accuracy.

servo motor for laser cutting machine

Servo Motors

A servomotor is a closed-loop servomechanism that uses position feedback to control its motion and final position. The input to its control is a signal (either analog or digital) representing the position commanded for the output shaft. The motor is paired with some type of position encoder to provide position and speed feedback. In the simplest case, only the position is measured. The measured position of the output is compared to the command position, the external input to the controller. If the output position differs from that required, an error signal is generated which then causes the motor to rotate in either direction, as needed to bring the output shaft to the appropriate position. As the positions approach, the error signal reduces to zero, and the motor stops. Servo motors ensure higher speed and higher precision of the laser cutting and engraving.


laser engraver rotary device

Rotary Attachment

If you want to engrave on the cylindrical items, the rotary attachment can meet your needs and achieve a flexible and uniform dimensional effect with a more precise carved depth. Plugin the wire into the right places, the general Y-axis movement turns into the rotary direction, which solves the unevenness of engraved traces with the changeable distance from the laser spot to the round material's surface on the plane.


Auto Focus

It is mainly used for metal cutting. You may need to set a certain focus distance in the software when the cutting material is not flat or with different thickness. Then the laser head will automatically go up and down, keeping the same height & focus distance to match with what you set inside the software to achieve a consistently high cutting quality.


Mixed Laser Head

A mixed laser head, also known as a metal non-metallic laser cutting head, is a very important part of the metal & non-metal combined laser cutting machine. With this professional laser head, you can cut both metal and non-metal materials. There is a Z-Axis transmission part of the laser head that moves up and down to track the focus position. Its double drawer structure enables you to put two different focus lenses to cut the materials of different thicknesses without adjustment of focus distance or beam alignment. It increases cutting flexibility and makes the operation very easy. You can use different assist gas for different cutting jobs.


Ball & Screw

A ball screw is a mechanical linear actuator that translates rotational motion to linear motion with little friction. A threaded shaft provides a helical raceway for ball bearings which act as a precision screw. As well as being able to apply or withstand high thrust loads, they can do so with minimum internal friction. They are made to close tolerances and are therefore suitable for use in situations in which high precision is necessary. The ball assembly acts as the nut while the threaded shaft is the screw. In contrast to conventional lead screws, ball screws tend to be rather bulky, due to the need to have a mechanism to re-circulate the balls. The ball screw ensures high speed and high precision laser cutting.

What Acrylic Can be Laser Engraved?

Before you embark on experimenting with acrylic in your laser, it's essential to grasp the distinctions between the two primary types of this material: cast and extruded acrylic.

1. Cast Acrylic

Cast acrylic sheets are crafted from liquid acrylic that is poured into molds, resulting in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.

This is the type of acrylic frequently used in crafting awards and similar items.

Cast acrylic is particularly well-suited for engraving due to its characteristic of turning a frosty white color when engraved.

While it can be cut with a laser, it does not yield flame-polished edges, making it better suited for laser engraving applications.

2. Extruded Acrylic

Extruded acrylic, on the other hand, is a highly popular material for laser cutting.

It is manufactured through a high-volume production process, which often makes it more cost-effective than cast acrylic.

Extruded acrylic responds differently to the laser beam—it cuts cleanly and smoothly, and when laser cut, it produces flame-polished edges.

However, when engraved, it doesn't yield a frosted appearance; instead, you get a clear engraving.

FAQ - Acrylic Laser Engraving & Cutting

# How do you cut Acrylic Without Cracking it?

To cut acrylic without cracking it, using a CO2 laser cutter is one of the best methods. Here are some tips to achieve clean and crack-free cuts:

Use the Right Power and Speed: Adjust the power and cutting speed of the CO2 laser cutter appropriately for the thickness of the acrylic. A slow cutting speed with low power is recommended for thick acrylic, while higher power and faster speed are suitable for thinner sheets.

Ensure Proper Focus: Maintain the correct focal point of the laser beam on the surface of the acrylic. This prevents excessive heating and minimizes the risk of cracking.

Use a Honeycomb Cutting Table: Place the acrylic sheet on a honeycomb cutting table to allow smoke and heat to disperse efficiently. This prevents heat buildup and reduces the chances of cracking...

How to Determine Focus Point for Your Laser Cutter?

Perfect laser cutting and engraving result means appropriate CO2 laser machine focal length.

This video answers you with specific operation steps for adjusting the CO2 laser lens to find the right focal length with a CO2 laser engraver machine.

The focus lens co2 laser concentrates the laser beam on the focus point which is the thinnest spot and has a powerful energy.

Some tips and suggestions are also mentioned in the video.

# How Thick of Acrylic Can a Laser Cutter Cut?

The cutting thickness of acrylic with a CO2 laser cutter depends on the power of the laser and the type of CO2 laser machine being used. Generally, a CO2 laser cutter can cut acrylic sheets ranging from a few millimeters to several centimeters in thickness.

For lower-powered CO2 laser cutters commonly used in hobbyist and small-scale applications, they can typically cut acrylic sheets up to around 6mm (1/4 inch) in thickness.

However, more powerful CO2 laser cutters, especially those used in industrial settings, can handle thicker acrylic materials. High-powered CO2 lasers can cut through acrylic sheets ranging from 12mm (1/2 inch) up to 25mm (1 inch) or even thicker.

We had a test for laser cutting thick acrylic up to 21mm with 450W laser power, the effect is beautiful. Check out the video to find more.

How to Laser Cut 21mm Thick Acrylic

In this video, we use the 13090 laser cutting machine to cut a strip of 21mm thick acrylic. With module transmission, the high precision helps you balance between cutting speed and cutting quality.

Before starting the thick acrylic laser cutting machine, the first thing you consider is to determine the laser focus and adjust it to the appropriate position.

For thick acrylic or wood, we suggest the focus should lie in the middle of the material. Laser testing is necessary for your different materials.
