As you may know, not every laser engraver can engrave on different volumes and materials. For example, you have purchased an ortur machine and you want to engrave on the cup. At this time, you need its accessory YRR2.0 to realize the engraving on the cup; for engraving materials, common engraving materials are wood, acrylic, paper , leather, organic plastics, silver, copper, gold, steel and polystyrene sheets, etc. But hard metals require high power to laser, while other soft materials can be engraved by low power laser engravers to produce complex designs.

Choosing an engraving opportunity that is easy to replace and install and has a warranty will make you do more with less, so ortur is one of your best choices. ③Maintenance and safety In the maintenance of the laser engraving machine, your wrong choice will definitely bring you some extra costs. When you choose some unbranded machines because of cheapness, you cannot guarantee that the brand experts and companies will recycle and maintain your machine after the machine is damaged, or such machine repair process may be limited to specific locations and countries. At this time, you will find that it is the best choice to prepare a reasonable laser engraving machine that is guaranteed and easy to install, maintain and repair.

Ortur Laser Master 2 Pro Laser Engraver: Long Focus vs. Short Focus Laser Modules

Ortur laser master 2 pro engraving machine is trending in 2021, because, let’s admit it, it is simple, affordable and reliable. Since you can install different laser modules on it and get different results, let’s explain the differences between long focus laser modules and short focus laser modules. Before we start, let's list the issues to consider when purchasing laser modules. Things to consider before buying a laser module Brand: If there is no special indication, laser modules and laser engraving machines of different brands are not compatible, so please pay attention to the brand name on the label before purchasing the laser module. Focus length: You will get different results with different laser focal lengths, so you need to determine whether you need a long focus or short focus laser module before placing orders. Of course, you can also buy both to get a freer DIY experience. What is focus length? The focus length of laser engraving machines means the distance between the point where the laser beam is focused and the focusing lens. Different focal lengths are achieved through different lenses in different laser modules. Just like naughty children burning ants with a magnifying glass in the sun, in order to minimize the light spot and maximize the energy concentration, the distance between different magnifying glasses and the ground is different.   Please note that all the Ortur laser modules have fixed focus length, and we will include the adjust devices in the packages. The differences between long focus and short focus laser modules. Because the spot size of the focused laser beam is directly proportional to the focal length of the laser module, short focus laser modules generate smaller points and finer engraving, and long focus laser modules can cut thicker materials. Pros Short focus laser modules Long focus laser modules   Smaller focal spot, finer engraving Good at engraving harder materials Can cut thin materials, only slower.   Has a longer engraving depth, can cut faster. Good at cutting thicker materials   Cons Shallower engraving Bigger focal spot May need extra air assist to avoid black edges To help you get the right Ortur laser module, here is a side by side comparison of Ortur Short Focus (SF) laser modules and Long Focus (LF) laser modules.   Model Short Focus Laser Modules Long Focus Laser Modules   Ortur LU 2-4 SF Ortur LU 2-4 LF Picture     Focal Spot Size 0.12 x 0.15mm   0.17 x 0.25mm   Suitable Materials Cut & Engrave Wood, plywood, corkwood, bread and other food, acrylic, leather, paper Glass, stone, oxidized metal, stainless steel, ceramic tile Cut & Engrave Wood, plywood, corkwood, bread and other food, acrylic, leather, paper   Work Example     Here is the performance comparison of three laser modules when cutting different materials with different thickness. Please note The results would be different in even same material with different finishing or different colors, So you need to adjust the speed and power rate based on different objects. Also, please adjust the focal length to be the best, make the focal spot to be the smallest. Materials couldn't engrave or cut directly: Glossy metal plate, Transparent materials, Reflecting materials, Some materials in white color or pervious to light, etc. Then, you need to use the marker pen to black it to engrave.
