Exploring diode laser, DPSS (diode-pumped solid-state) laser, fiber laser, and Co2 laser abilities – cutting, engraving examples. What you can cut or engrave with different types of lasers.  LEARN MORE NOW!

Diode lasersLaser diode

Diode lasers are good for all types of cutting of soft materials including wood, plywood, dark acrylic, leather, felt, fabric, cardboard, hardboard, etc. The diode laser can engrave (etch) on all surfaces including glass, transparent acrylic, stainless steel, anodized aluminum, and titanium. The diode lasers are a universal tool. For engraving on transparent materials, you need to use a cover or a coating.

Key advantage: portable and can be installed on any 3D printer, CNC frame and gantry.


DPSS laserEndurance lasers: all about cutting and engraving abilities of diode, DPSS, fiber, Co2 lasers, UV (355 nm)

DPSS lasers are good for metal engraving (marking). Real metal marking including in-depth marking. DPSS lasers can also engrave transparent materials like glass, acrylic, etc. The DPSS is more for metal engraving/marking.

With DPSS laser you can also do color engraving on glass, sapphire glass, titanium, and stainless steel. To get that you would need to setup different power, amount of repeats, focus, and speed.

Key advantage: a great tool for metal marking and metal engraving.


Co2 lasers

Endurance lasers: all about cutting and engraving abilities of diode, DPSS, fiber, Co2 lasers, UV (355 nm)
40 watt Co2 tube

A co2 laser is a great tool for almost all types of cutting and engraving. 40 watt Co2 laser is mostly for engraving many materials excluding metal and all Co2 lasers can cut transparent acrylic. The only type of laser that can cut transparent acrylic.

Usually, Co2 lasers have more power and can do faster engraving or cutting comparing to diode lasers however they are not as portable as a diode and can not be installed on some small gantries >>>

Key advantage: very universal and can cut clear and white acrylic.

Fiber laser

Fiber lasers can be used in many areas as well but can not cut transparent acrylic. The main application for fib

Endurance lasers: all about cutting and engraving abilities of diode, DPSS, fiber, Co2 lasers, UV (355 nm)

er lasers is an extremely fast engraving on all surfaces and cutting of thin metal like steel, brass, copper, and stainless steel.

Color engraving on metals with fiber lasers is much easier compared to DPSS. You need also to setup the number of repeats, power, speed, and focusing range.

Key advantage: ultra-fast laser engraving.

Diode laser and DPSS is completely Endurance production while Co2 tubes and fiber laser emitters are not.

For diode laser and DPSS we have our own proprietary building technology. We install Co2 cuts on custom frames or use them in an upgrade pack. Fiber laser emitter by Raycus (30-50 watt) laser output is used in our DIY galvo machine.
