Laser Engravers for Metal Guide (CO2 vs. Fiber vs. Diode)
By Guillaume Jobin on September 25, 2023

While fiber lasers, CO2 lasers, and diode lasers can all be used to engrave metal, the kind of laser engraver you need depends on how you want to use it. If you run a production line, you’ll need a fiber laser. If you have small business or just want to do DIY projects as a beginner, a CO2 laser or a diode laser may be sufficient.

How Does Laser Engraving Work?
By Jerome Landry on July 16, 2021

Laser engraving is a process that vaporizes materials into fumes to engrave permanent, deep marks. The laser beam acts as a chisel, incising marks by removing layers from the surface of the material. The laser hits localized areas with massive levels of energy to generate the high heat required for vaporization.
