Wood Engraving Machines Offer You Options
With a wood engraving machine from Gravograph, you have the ability to process wood in several ways as well as options for creating Raster and vector markings. We would like to explain the different kinds of laser engraving markings you can create with one of our laser engraving machines as well as offer you two different wood engraving application examples: engraving on wooden rifle stock and engraving a six-sided wooden box.
Four Ways of Processing Wood, Same Image
|The object of this process was to duplicate the typical knurled feel to a common rifle stock. The profile of the cut is something like shown in the image.|
The power setting was 54 watts at a speed of 55"/sec. The DPI setting was 600. Air assist was required to get a good mark. The keys to achieving the very high- quality cutting pattern shown were the use of a 3.5" focal length lens and defocusing the part slightly. The cycle time per side is 52 seconds.
There was a definite target for the width of the cut so the broader beam width of the 3.5" lens was beneficial. Defocusing the part by about .55" broadened the beam a little more and softened the edges of the cut. As you will notice, a nice, charred contrast was also developed which improves the general appearance of the part.
This simple, pine box was visually enhanced by lasing this intricate, vector marked pattern on the top and five of the sides.
This piece was processed with an LS100Ex 40 watt system using the following laser parameters. Power = 8 watts, Speed = 57" per/sec, DPI = 300. The mark was enhanced by utilizing the air assist and head exhaust. The mark quality is very uniform, with the top being slightly more delicate as the image was resized to fit. Hint: The preset for "wood" improved this process.
